Plumettaz’s mission has always been to lighten the load of the workforce by using its mechanical innovations: capstan winches for snow groomers and facade maintenance, viticulture equipment, or oil circulators for the railway industry. Since 1953, the design and supply of equipment for the installation of all-terrain cables for energy and telecommunications have become its core activity.
Located in Vevey, the company witnessed, in 1930, the hard toil faced by the winemakers struggling to work on the slopes of the region. Plumettaz designed ploughs for them which did not need to be pulled manually, but by overhanging capstan winches which were easily transportable and installed. From agriculture to industry, Plumettaz stands out from its competitors with its innovative approach built around the criteria that substantiates its reputation: robustness, mobility, adaptability. With its range of 3,500 machines, mostly known as Plumett, Plumettaz continues to gain momentum around the world. Working the land becomes so much easier.
Either on land or on water. By adapting water propulsion to its Jetting techniques, Plumettaz is again pushing boundaries even further, especially to meet the needs of renewable energies such as wind turbines on land and at sea! Its floating installation techniques facilitate the onshore connection to off-shore wind turbines which are situated close to shore, so making Clean energy more accessible.
From mechanics to computers. The Plumettaz group adapts to modern technological developments for both its internal optimisation and that of its clients. Using the Watucab, control software which is delivered in a waterproof case for construction sites, mechanical engineering becomes more intelligent.
From air to land. The main advantages that the underground cable has on the aerial cable, such as safety, reliability, and durability are attracting new markets all around the world. Plumettaz can confirm its status as the leading initiator of new technologies through its expertise, its advice and a training framework for new users. Investing becomes reassuring.
Having accomplished nearly one hundred years of innovations, the Plumettaz group is still contributing to progress, relieving workforces of their workload and bringing effective solutions to increase the comfort of all.
Wherever we are, connecting people to their world becomes possible.
