ALM-ACMAT(Ateliers de Construction Mecanique de L'Atlantique)
| 1948. ALM - Ateliers Legueu Meaux Based in Meaux, the founder Rene Legueu adds a patented transfer box and his own-design front axle to a mass-produced truck and improves the rear axle. The first all-terrain trucks are particularly adapted to the severe farming works. He transformed the Panhard trucks in all wheel drive vehicles. |
Since 1954, the specific requests of the oil and geophysical industrials in Sahara allow the development of the range 4WD and 6WD, designed for survivability in the most challenging terrain.The exceptional performances of these vehicles appeal to the French Forces in Africa, inquiring without success a vehicle able to transport, either a basic infantry cell or a weapon system and the crew, and this with a 1000-km cruising range without refuelling.
1965. ACMAT - Ateliers de Constructions Mecaniques de l'ATlantique.Perpetuating the heritage of his father, Paul Legueu moves ALM to Saint-Nazaire to establish the new company ACMAT. The range of special vehicles is focused on the all-terrain trucks and the standardization of their equipment as core concept.Between 1965 and 1970, a complete engineering of the whole vital components as front and rear axles, transfer box and gearbox, ensures this standardization, protects the know-how by 12 international registered patents and provides the technical independence vis-a-vis the industrial suppliers.
In 1967, the VLRA 1 - Liaison, Reconnaissance and Support Vehicle - direct heir of the VCOM, benefits from this concept while meeting the severe requirements of the French Army for the Foreign Special Operations.With exceptional mobility performances as 2.5 tonne-payload, 1600 km-cruising range or 200 litre-water tank, the VLRA 1 becomes the reference in the market.
These extreme specifications of robustness, survivability and the lowest cost of maintenance interest also Africa and Middle East, considered as the most challenging environment. From 1991 to 2004, ACMAT produces the VLA. With a payload up to 8 tonnes, the VLA, initially designed to carry pallets, is available in series 4WD, 6WD and 8 WD.
2006. ACMAT - Subsidiary of Renault Trucks.Partner of one of the world leaders in the transport industry, the company ACMAT leads an ambitious strategy perpetuating the unique know-how in the fields of defence, security and industry.The executive managed by Francois Bouvier still writes successfully new chapters in the history of the company. With the production of the new all-terrain vehicles : the truck VLRA, the armoured BASTION and the pickup ALTV, ACMAT combines innovation and tradition, developing its range on all continents.
