Robinson Manufacturing Limited (RML) choose local business Hitec to supply new Combilift machines

Establishing strong partnerships with local businesses throughout the East of England has long been the Hitec Lift Trucks approach. Robinson Manufacturing Limited, who have a site in Wellingborough, also believe in the concept of ‘choosing local’ and recently took delivery of 3 new Combilift side-loader forklifts from Hitec to supplement their existing fleet.

The new machines are specifically designed for businesses that require robust and fast operation when moving products across sites, which was a key requirement identified during the evaluation process. Hitec were able to successfully demonstrate how the four-wheeled, two directional configuration of the equipment would help deliver a solution that simultaneously improved efficiency, productivity and safety.

The machines were delivered in December 2020 and the feedback from the operators has been extremely positive, with ease of use and the reliability of the machines specifically mentioned.

Paul Stiff, Hitec’s Regional Account Manager, commented: “Robinson Manufacturing Limited are very closely aligned with our own values of trusting and investing in local businesses and we’re delighted to have completed this delivery to their Wellingborough site. The Combilift machines are extremely popular with many customers as they offer a wide range of capabilities and excellent performance and it’s the perfect choice to match the customer’s requirements.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with them moving forward to ensure that they continue to get the most out of their equipment. The feedback we’ve had so far from the operators regarding the performance and reliability of the new machines has been excellent and despite only being on site for a few months, they are already proving their worth.”

Matt Davies, Head of QESH, Robinson Manufacturing Limited, said: “I have known Paul Stiff for many years. He has always been helpful and supportive when advising on anything to do with lifting plant machinery, helping RML make the right decisions on the equipment needed to maintain our production needs.”

If your business is looking for industrial equipment from a trusted local supplier, then all you need to do is ‘Ask Hitec’ and we’ll take care of the rest.

Hitec delivers new Flexi truck to English Heritage site Wrest Park

Hitec Lift Trucks has completed the delivery of a new articulated Flexi truck to the English Heritage site, Wrest Park in Bedfordshire.

The machine will be used mainly to help the Collections team at Wrest Park safely store and transport a wide range of artefacts and delicate items across their site, which is gearing up for a busy summer period following the anticipated relaxation of COVID restrictions.

Rachel Kitcherside, Collections Manager, Wrest Park, commented: “We initially contacted Hitec as we were looking to replace our existing truck as it was becoming unsuitable for our requirements. Ben and the Hitec team responded promptly and identified the appropriate solution for us, which was the Flexi truck.

“The operation of the Flexi is extremely smooth, which is very important for us as its main function is to transport delicate artefacts and other fragile items. We have been extremely pleased with the machine and it’s having a really positive effect on our business. I’d like to thank Ben and Hitec for their hard work in specifying a high quality product that ticks every box and has fitted seamlessly into our operations.”

Ben Stiff, Regional Account Manager, Hitec Lift Trucks, commented: “We are delighted to have completed this delivery to the iconic Wrest Park site. Our site evaluation indicated that the Flexi was the ideal choice. Given the nature of the work that’s carried out at Wrest Park, any equipment that we supplied had to be able to perform in a very narrow aisle (VNA) environment, whilst also providing a smooth and even ride.

“The Flexi itself is exceptional at performing in VNA areas and is already doing everything expected of it. We looking forward to helping the team at English Heritage with anything else they may need in the future.”
