Top trucks for tiles
12 December 2012
As over three million tiles are processed every year at the Plunkett Tiling factory, materials handling plays a vital role in the company's operations. That's why the tiling contractor has relied on Mitsubishi Forklift
When the company decided to expand its fleet earlier this year,MD Paddy Plunkett turned to A1's sales director, Graeme Tennick. "The customer was looking for an additional truck to assist with the loading and unloading of tiles in the factory," says Tennick, "so I recommended the FG18N, a 1.8 tonne LP gas counterbalance.
"Easy handling is essential when transporting such delicate cargo. To minimise effort, the FG18N has an automotive style-pedal layout with self-energising and self-adjusting drum brakes."
