Christian Lange My slogan is: "Make satisfied customers"

After 8 seasons in motor sports (kart racing, Formula Ford Benelux Europe WorldCup and Rally Cup 205 Gti 87), I created SA Lange Christian ("the real specialist in garden equipment") in 1988.

In 1994, I designed the "Glutton®" urban waste vacuum cleaner (petrol engine), which launched on the market in 1996.

In 2001, I stopped selling garden equipment to focus on the Glutton®, which became electric in 2007. It has been an incredible success, with average growth of 30% a year since 2005.

In 2019, 6000 towns and cities are using Glutton® machines in 70 countries on five continents...

The future is bright with the arrival of the Glutton® Zen® (100% electric street sweeper, 100% made by Glutton®) which is built in our new, modern and ecoresponsible 7000 m² factory in Andenne.

Glutton® recruits and is constantly on the look-out for talent (in all areas) to continue our exciting international adventure.
