Hitec Lift Trucks Easter Egg Hunt 2019

To celebrate Easter weekend, we hosted an egg hunt this morning for our employees. The idea was to have a little competitive fun and treat everyone to some chocolate.

The engineers found nearly all of them and claimed all the prizes in the space of 5 minutes.

We’re not saying there was shenanigans, but there were definitely shenanigans.

Ah well, at least we still have delicious Easter snacks!

We’ll be shutting down over this bank holiday weekend (though our on-call service will still be live!) so we’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy Easter!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and we’ll see you again on Tuesday 23rd.

Hitec Lift Trucks To Sponsor And Exhibit At Vertikal Days 2019

As revealed by the Vertikal Days Twitter account, Hitec Lift Trucks will be sponsoring the Access Equipment event in May 2019.

This is an exciting time for Hitec as not only will we be providing the forklifts used at the Donington Park based two day event, but we’ll also be exhibiting.

Appearing at Vertikal Days will give us an excellent chance to show off the fantastic range of equipment that we can provide, but also gives us the ability to stand alongside some of the best in the industry.

Vertikal Days runs from the 15th -16th of May, opening at 10am both mornings. If you’d like to attend the event, make sure to mark it in your calenders and register here.

Be sure to pop round to our exhibit and say hello, we can’t wait to see you all!

Hitec Retrospective Christmas Jumper Day

The Hitec Retrospective; A Look Back At 2018

2018 went by quickly didn’t it?

As this year draws to a close and 2019 comes ever closer with the sparkle of fairy lights and the rustle of tinsel; Hitec Lift Trucks have decided to take a look back at what’s been an exciting, challenging time for our business.

2018 saw major change for Hitec; in June we were acquired by materials handling giant Briggs Equipment Ltd, which not only afforded us excellent support and resources, but phenomenal opportunity to expand and grow.

Briggs Equipment Acquire Hitec Lift Trucks

Through Briggs, we became a Hyster dealership, welcoming new equipment into our already broad fleet and able to provide our customers with an even bigger, better range of materials handling machinery.

We’ve also had the chance to expand the amount of training services that we can offer, which will allows fantastic opportunity for our customers to grow their knowledge and experience whilst gaining certification; for a full list of what training is now available with Hitec, please click here.

Our customer base has grown in number and we’d like to thank every single business and individual we’ve spoken to, visited, exchanged emails with and gained contracts with, but also those who have given us their time and loyalty over the years. Give yourselves a pat on the back, we couldn’t do what we do without you!

With our acquisition, Hitec have taken the opportunity to rebrand, now supporting a fetching red, white and black colour scheme, our vans and lorries can now be seen sporting our new colours – allowing us to be recognised wherever we go.

Hitec Lift Trucks Rebrand

To help us continue to grow and thrive in the new year, we’ve taken on lots of new faces, including staff at front of house, the expansion of our sales team, a new in house marketing department and new faces amongst our engineers – we’re sure you’ll get the chance to meet them all in 2019!

Hitec have continued our support of the East Midlands Rugby Football Union under 18s team, as well as sponsorship of the Rushden Diamonds Youth team – see if you can spot us on their kit! We’ve also been very proud to continue our work with the Rotary Club, supplying a free forklift whenever they require it for their work with Refugee Relief.

On the 13th of December we hosted a Christmas Jumper Day and bake sale in aid of Save the Children – far too much cake was eaten and we’re delighted to have raised money for such a brilliant cause.

We can’t promise that we won’t eat too many mince pies this Christmas; but we can promise that you can expect the same level of service and commitment from us in 2019.

Merry Christmas everyone, and a very happy new year to you!

We’ll hope to see you in 2019.

The Hitec Lift Trucks team
