Contact Attachments has supplied one of its most popular forklift attachments to a specialist maintenance firm, to assist with lifting and handling duties.
DBS Maintenance Ltd, a petrol forecourt repair, refurbishment and extension specialist, called upon the Contact Attachments team to design, manufacture and supply one of its popular Forklift Jibs, which was on offer online during October.
Having been purchased online at www.forkliftattachments. co.uk, the team at Contact Attachments, based in Newtown, Mid Wales, the product was delivered to the company’s head office in Winchester.
Andrew Lamburne, Director at DBS Maintenance Ltd, explained: “We specialise in maintaining, repairing and refurbishing petrol station forecourts, and occasionally we need to work at height. Having recently acquired a forklift truck, we wanted to explore the possibility of converting it into a safe and cost-effective crane, and Contact Attachments’ Forklift Jib was the ideal piece of kit.
“We came across the deal on their website, and within just a few days after ordering, it was delivered in excellent condition to our site. The service we received more than met our expectations, and the team at DBS Maintenance are already putting it to great use.”
To suit the capability of the forklift truck, the Jib is rated which reduces wear and tear on the forklift and prevents the possibility of any overloading. As an added benefit, the multiple hook positions also allow flexible load handling and improved visibility when in operation.
Dave Manuel, Technical Sales Director for Contact, said: “We were pleased to have supplied to DBS Maintenance and provide them with a product that improves their handling and lifting capabilities. We have a wide range of Jibs available to suit all applications, and can also provide additional lifting equipment to provide a onestop- shop for customers, including chain slings and adjustable forklift hooks.”
Contact Attachments has been designing and manufacturing attachments from its base in Newtown, Wales, for over 40 years. It is recognised as the quality leader of forklift attachments in the UK.
