Hitec Lift Trucks has completed the delivery of a new fleet of Hyster counterbalance forklifts to its long term customer Freefoam. The new trucks arrived at the Northampton site in April 2021 and have replaced an existing fleet of competitor machines, which were unable to perform to the required intensity and demands.
Even though the trucks have only been in place for a short while, they are having an instant impact of productivity and efficiency, with production up by 25% since installation. The machines are specifically designed to operate in high intensity industrial environments and will support the growth and development of Freefoam’s business moving forward.
Paul Stiff, Hitec Lift Trucks’ Regional Business Development Manager, commented: “We are delighted to have completed this delivery of new trucks to Freefoam. We have worked closely with them previously on different projects and we’re proud to have been chosen to supply these latest additions to their equipment fleet.
“The trucks are all fitted with a range of safety features and will help improve on-site efficiency, whilst also providing the forklift drivers with a much more comfortable experience during operation.
“We’re looking forward to supporting Freefoam moving forward and we’ll be working closely with their team to ensure they are getting the most out of our their new equipment.”
