“Linde’s truck safety, reliability, durability, and competitive pricing, are second to none and these key features meant that we jumped at the chance to lease 16 Linde trucks for our factories. A move that has significantly increased the productivity of our delivery and storage systems.”
Jim Freer, Procurement Manager at Devro (Scotland) Ltd, Glasgow. Linde Material Handling supplies Devro (Scotland) Ltd with a broad range of 16 forklift trucks on contract hire to maximise the productivity and cost efficiency of its operation. This comprises of a mixed fleet of electrical counterbalance trucks, electric pallet trucks, electric stacker trucks, reach trucks and gas trucks.
Based in Glasgow, Devro (Scotland) Ltd manufactures edible, collagen based sausage casings and is the world’s leading provider of collagen products for the food industry.
Jim Freer, continues: “The Linde E20PL electric counterbalance trucks give us the versatility needed to stack and load pallets in restricted spaces both indoors and outdoors, making both loading and unloading far more productive. While our Linde R12 reach trucks provide a cost effective handling solution for our wider aisle storage and retrieval systems.”
For the retrieval of pallets in tight or pedestrian priority areas, Devro (Scotland) Ltd use the Linde L12 pallet stacker trucks which, thanks to its versatile, pedestrian or rider operated feature, is ideal for handling open based pallets and stillages across a variety of different functions in the factories.
Jim concludes: “Devro factories operate 24 hours a day and due to the high volume of casings, we deliver nationally and export globally, it’s essential that we have the right equipment. Pallets need to be lifted on and off lorries quickly, storage needs to be accurate and our work force needs to be safe. The Linde trucks have been the best solution to reach all Devro (Scotland) Ltds company requirements.”
