  • 1964: first AirTram in Notre-Dame d’Afrique, Algiers (Algeria)
  • 1984: aerial tram installed in New Orleans (U.S.A.)
  • 1989: Automated People Mover (APM) created in Laon (France)
  • 2001: the first Automated People Mover produced using the innovative, ultra-silent technology called "Poma Air Levitation"
  • 2004: the first gondola lift integrated to the intermodal public transportation network installed in Medellin (Colombia)

Problems linked to mobility have increased in urban areas and transportation have become a priority in today's society. The international success of our installations sets us at the forefront of environmentally efficient ropeway transportation solutions, on the ground and in the air, all over the world.
