Our history
 

The Jonckheere group wanted to create a production site in Wallonia to support its activity of buses manufacturing and Caterpillar wanted to deal with a cabines supplier located near its factory in Gosselies.

Mutual interest of these two partners is the origin of the CARWALL creation or in others words « CARrosserie WALLone » in Sombreffe.

Mr. PONLOT, former Caterpillar mananger, and partner of Jonckheere in 1985 is some other commercial businesses, has taken part to the company and selected as CEO.

First shares were splitted by 40% Jonckheere, 20% SIBS, 20% Sambrinvest et 20% M. PONLOT. Then, SIBS andSambrinvest shares were bought to make 66% Jonckheere and 33% to Mr. PONLOT.

In 1995 the company was sold to TIM (french company, subisiary of Fritzmeier group). This gave the opportunity to Carwall to further grow by being part of the biggest european manufacturer of cabines for tractors and earth-mocing machines.
