After a series of trials with a number of material handling manufacturers, WH Malcolm has recently renewed their fleet of Toyota gas forklifts at their manufacturing site in Harlow, Essex. Working as efficiently as possible is at the heart of the large glass manufacturing and warehousing facility, and as such requires a reliable fleet of trucks to ensure maximum productivity and minimum downtime.
The latest additions to the site include; seven Toyota Tonero gas powered counterbalance forklifts ranging from 2.0 – 3.5 tonnes, one Toyota Traigo 48-volt electric counterbalance forklift, two BT Levio 2.0 tonne powered pallet trucks, as well as one Toyota Tracto 6.0 tonne sit-on tow tractor.
With safety in the workplace being of paramount importance to WH Malcolm, the Toyota Tonero trucks are equipped with Toyota’s Safety Plus Package which includes; a load weight indicator to help prevent over-loading which may lead to accidents, speed limiter to ensure the driver stays within the pre-set limit, speed and acceleration control to limit the drive speed with load at height, as well as additional options including transmission protection, mini-levers, mirrors, pin-code access as well as specially designed double pallet handlers, all aimed to increase productivity without compromising safety.
Freddy Solomon, Head of Warehousing & Strategy at WH Malcolm Ltd commented “The reliability of the Toyota products and contract flexibility gave us the confidence to continue working with Toyota Material Handling UK.”
Stuart Reilly, National Account Manager for Toyota has worked closely with WH Malcolm Ltd on many projects over the past 10 years, commented “It is a testament to the build quality and reliability of the Toyota product that provides the team at WH Malcolm Ltd with the confidence to continue working with us in such a demanding and challenging environment.”
Toyota Material Handling UK continues to strengthen their relation with WH Malcolm Ltd at both their own warehousing sites as well as operating within customer manufacturing sites.
