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.

A Thank You From Hitec Lift Trucks

Thank You.

With businesses tackling so many unforeseen challenges, it has become vital to support one another.

Throughout lockdown, Hitec Lift Trucks has not only been able to remain open, but we’ve also continued to provide support to local businesses and traders.

Adhering to Governmental guidelines, the Hitec team have been able to offer equipment advice, servicing and breakdown support to businesses in need, as well as supplying equipment on short-term hire.

With restrictions now beginning to ease and many returning to work, Adam Lantsbery, General Manager of Hitec Lift Trucks, takes pride in what the company has achieved;

It has only been possible for Hitec to remain open thanks to the dedication of staff and the support of our customers. This has been a fantastic opportunity to show that Hitec is committed to supporting our neighbouring businesses and that as lockdown eases, we can be their “go to” provider for all their MHE needs.’

With engineers and administrative staff returning to 12 Bradfield Road, Hitec is now able to dedicate even more time toward aiding customers past, present and future.

We would like to thank everyone who stood by us during these difficult times, especially the key worker industries that have supported the UK. We’re very proud to have, in particular, worked alongside the Food and Logistics industries during lockdown. Your business is our business and we are eternally grateful for your loyalty.

Stay safe everyone.
