The Central Bank of France
When the French National Bank’s gold reserves has to be moved, it is with the help of AL-LIFT.
Like other central banks, France also has a gold reserve, which is stored in safe deposit boxes far down in the basement of the Central Bank in Paris. Each box contains gold bars valued for DKK 1.2 million and weighs 60 kg. Bank staff are not allowed move the gold by hand. Therefore, AL-LIFT was asked to help develop a handling equipment that can be sent 50 meters down underground with elevators and used to move gold bars worth millions.
The solution was AL-Golddigger, a mobile, battery-operated crane with a crank arm. The crane is pillar-mounted and has an electric handle.

Handling goods that involve heavy lifting is a challenge for employees in the transport and logistics industry. Often theres a risk of injury to the back, shoulders and legs.
“Throughout the process, AL-LIFT has been very collaborative and solution-oriented. They have helped us find the right solution, as well as customized the units to suit our needs.” Explains Stefan Maagaard, who is Development Manager at Frode Laursen A/S and elaborates: “We chose AL-LIFT because they had nice references and because they seemed to be “nerdy” about their products”
“We are very pleased with the units, which have been well received by our employees, and from the very first day they have experienced that they do not feel so worn out when going home. At the same time, we have not experienced a decrease in efficiency, which we had feared as employees now have energy throughout the whole day.” Says Allan Thorup, warehouse manager at Frode Laursen A/S.
