And just like that, another year is over.
2019 has gone by in a flash and whilst there’s been ups and downs, it’s been a great year for Hitec Lift Trucks. The tree is up, the lights are on and with Christmas only a couple of days away and with the dawn of 2020 on the horizon, it’s time to take a look back at our 2019 journey.
This year we’ve concentrated on expansion, growing our team, growing our space and growing our fleet.
We’ve come on leaps and bounds with the Hyster brand and have also added Hako cleaning equipment to the long list of equipment we can provide for sale and hire.
Our sales, hire and service teams have all welcomed new faces, whilst management of the business will be changing just after Christmas. Our two founders, Andy Selbie and Pros Girardi have embraced retirement and the next chapter of Hitec’s story will be led by recently promoted Adam Lantsbery.
We’ve taken on an additional building on Leyland Industrial Estate, allowing us to house even more equipment, our sales team and the Hitec Christmas Tree.
2019 has also seen Hitec Lift Trucks take on challenges for charity, including a sponsored 9k walk for Wellingborough Mind, a 5k Santa Run for SANDs and most recently Christmas Jumper day for Save the Children. We want to thank everyone who has sponsored members of team Hitec over the year, it’s wonderful to receive such support!
We couldn’t be where we are now without the phenomenal support of our customers. Not only have we had a bumper year for sales, but it’s been an incredible opportunity to work alongside some brilliant businesses and individuals. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone we’ve spoken to, delivered to and met with over 2019 and we hope that we get the chance to do so again in 2020.
In the meantime, we’d like to wish everyone a very happy festive season! Have a wonderful time and we will see you again in the New Year!
