Builders merchant JP Corry, part of Jewson parent Saint Gobain Building Distribution, has taken on a new fleet of forklifts to improve efficiency across its 17 branches.
The Northern Ireland builders and timber merchant has already received over 40 new vehicles from forklift manufacturers Doosan and Combilift.
The 10-year supply contract was developed by equipment supplier Rushlift, with national account manager Matt Turner assessing each branch’s individual requirments.
The introduction of the new Combilift equipment will enable, faster, increased productivity for JP Corry’s business.
The Combilift is designed to handle long-loads safely, by eliminating the need to travel with loads lifted high; the units provide greater stability and safer product handling. The four-way steering system allows the units to travel sideways with long load resulting in less product damage, safer handling for staff and the potential to save on space.
Doosan will be providing trucks from its Pro-5 range, which come with high performance engines, operator sensing systems and hydrostatic steering.
JP Corry’s operations director, Richard Whiteside, says: “With the addition of the Doosan and Combilift equipment we will be able to demonstrate our vast range of quality branded products to even more customers, and continue to deliver our service, delivery and professional technical advice.”
