Headquartered in Birmingham, AL, Altec has been a company committed to excellence for more than 90 years. A leading equipment and service provider for the electric utility, telecommunications, contractor, lights and signs, and vegetation management markets, the company provides products and services in more than 100 countries throughout the world.

In Australia, Altec is a leader in the design, manufacture, and supply of insulated and non-insulated Elevated Work Platforms (EWPs), pole borers, and specialty equipment. The company offers new equipment, used equipment, rental solutions, rebuilds, service, parts, and accessories.


Elevated Work Platforms

Altec Australia has a full range of Elevated Work Platforms (EWPs) perfectly suited for Australia’s diverse conditions. Altec’s EWPs are designed to be versatile and robust, and offer superior side reach with industry leading safety features. EWPs range in height from 11-45 meters and are ideal for use in vegetation management. Altec equipment meets all Australian regulatory requirements and is delivered with mandated safety equipment.



Renting through Altec allows customers to use the industry’s most advanced equipment and evaluate its technology without the commitment to purchase. The Altec rental fleet is made up of the company’s most popular units as well as its newest introductions to the Australian market.

The Altec team works with customers to customise a solution designed to meet their specific equipment and financial needs. This can include building a custom unit with a specific body and chassis configuration. Whether equipment is needed for a short-term or long-term project, Altec will tailor the hire lease to each customer’s needs.



Altec has a service center in Melbourne as well as a team of mobile service technicians that can travel directly to customers for maintenance and repairs. Altec also has service partners located throughout Australia to help customers with any of their equipment repair needs. Altec’s service offerings include:

  • Service of Altec and non-Altec equipment
  • 24 hour emergency support via on-call technicians
  • Periodic certification inspections – 3, 6, and 12 month
  • HV electrical testing
  • Stability testing
  • Creep testing
  • Electrical and mechanical diagnostics
  • On-site repairs and inspections
  • Rebuilds and remounts
  • Expert hydraulic, electrical, and mechanical repairs



Altec Australia is the only authorised dealer of Altec new and replacement parts. In working with Altec, customers can be assured they will receive parts that meet Altec’s quality and engineering standards. Altec is also able to source parts and accessories for all brands of EWP and cranes.



Australian law dictates that Elevated Work Platforms (EWPs) and pole borers must be rebuilt once the equipment is ten years old and every five years after that. Altec conducts rebuilds on all brands and models of EWPs and pole borers. If the unit is not built by Altec, the Altec team works with the original manufacturer to source genuine OEM parts. Altec adopts a custom approach for new unit builds, and the same is true of the Altec rebuild process.
