HISTORY

From ideas and innovations

In the early 1990´s piling was an becoming an increasingly utilized working method at construction sites. There was a real need for a faster and more efficient way to install piles. At that time MOVAX started to develop the Side-Grip technology with the objective to meet the specific demands of customers and job sites. The first MOVAX side grip pile drivers was commissioned in 1993. In order to obtain the highest possible efficiency from the Side-Grip technology it was from early-on clear that more advanced steering was necessary. The first version of Auto-steering for hydraulic excavators was introduced by MOVAX in 1996.


through continuous development and strong commitment

MOVAX has always had a strong commitment in developing its products and services. And through-out the years, the product family has grown to include several different side-grip pile driver models as well as other excavator-mounted accessories such piling hammers and soil drills. Through continuous development also the auto-steering – MOVAX Controls System (MCS) – has become more intelligent, easy-to-operate, flexible and reliable and more so meeting the ever growing needs of customers. The aim is and has always been to fulfill the demands of the customers as well as those of the job sites. In fact, Movax product development always starts at a job site. That is why the end results have also proved to be working extremely well in real life, at the job sites.
