From our birth in 1973, to 2023 – 50 years of know-how and of serving industry

An entity of the French group IMS Extension located in Bonneval, Eure-et-Loir (Centre-Val de Loire region), IMS (Inter Manutention Système) is a company of 15 employees that studies, designs, manufactures and assembles its equipment in order to offer a high level of quality and control over its products and services.

A pioneer in Bertin-derived air-cushioned handling technology, and a European promoter of the electric micro pusher-tractor concept, IMS also offers ergonomic solutions for operator workstation fit-out.

Working to reduce the burden of load carrying, IMS offers a cutting-edge range of stair-climber or powered electric dollies, as well as a range of everyday handling support tools.

A team of local employees throughout France, together with the Germany-based IMS sales office, are on hand to support users as well as current and future clients.

Position loads more easily thanks to air cushions

Then, the air cushion modules can be integrated into existing structures to be transported or, for exceptional handling, they can be placed directly under the load.

The pressure in the air cushion modules is increased until they lift the load and a film of air is established between them and the floor, in order for this process to be established the floor must be smooth and waterproof. (See soil specifications to be obtained by clicking here.)

The load floats on a film of air, almost without friction; it then becomes easy to move and position heavy loads with very little effort and in an omnidirectional manner.

Also, IMS creates electric micro push tractors.

IMS electric micro push tractors are autonomous, maneuverable, compact and allow effortless handling of rolling loads.

IMS designs micro push tractors for large rolling loads of all types but also reel pushers, for moving cylinders (cable reels, paper reels, vehicle tires), not to mention the electrically propelled motorized drawbar.

The company also offers motorized kits to be integrated into specific existing rolling infrastructures that must be equipped with motorized movement.

IMS Manutention also offers ergonomic workstations.
