Quite often ReloConsult GmbH was involved in complex transport assignments and developed customer specific solutions. Even experienced crane companies took hold of the longtime experience and the wide network. Through these operations the insight was gained that there is a need for specialized vehicles, especially on tracks. They have to be able to operate in trying cross country conditions and challenging road situations as well as steep inclines or tight areas. It proved not to be sufficient to use existing systems such as excavator frames.

Therefore Christian Klementz founded the company ACROSS THE GROUND. The customer shall be provided with individual solutions for extreme conditions. This includes the development and manufacturing of undercarriages and transport frames as well as the optimization of existing machines.

A new business sector is the development of fire engines based on crawler and dumper chassis. ATG is working together with several specialists in the area of fire engines and bush fire figthing in this sector.

The use of crawlers is known for a long time. But the concept of tracked vehicles that are built especially for challenging conditions is probably a unique proposition by ATG.
