Impact Handling has signed an exclusive deal to supply the innovative Ulma Inoxtruck range of stainless steel materials handling equipment in the UK. Created specifically for the food and pharmaceutical industries, the patented design sets a new benchmark for hygienic materials handling equipment.
Following three years of analysis and development, the new range aims to set new standards for ergonomics, performance and quality. Ensuring that this high quality equipment is easy to clean and keep clean was one of the key development parameters. The open design of the chassis and forks mean that cleaning every corner is easy without the need for specialist equipment or procedures. All welding is continuous and imperfection free, to prevent accumulation of dirt and micro-organisms. Surfaces are designed to be self draining and all the equipment is designed to be lubricant free, removing this potential contaminant.
The range includes both manual and electric pedestrian pallet trucks, an electric platform pallet truck for longer distance use, electro mechanical manual stackers and an electronic pedestrian stacker that features an innovative, dual drive traction system for better stability and grip. A major feature of this new range is that all this equipment can be thoroughly washed down and included in the standard cleaning routine of any company.
After signing the contract with Ulma Inoxtruck, Impact Handling’s MD Terry Kendrew was keen to point out the high quality nature of the product and the business potential. He said,”In the first instance to gain exclusive rights to distribute the Ulma Inoxtruck range is a great addition to our business. I have no doubt that this high quality range will be much sought after and will give us the opportunity to grow our business in new areas, as well as adding to the high quality portfolio of products we supply.”
