Hangcha Canada and one of its dealers, Équipements EMU, are the official forklift suppliers to Canadian Grand Prix Formula One race for the second year running.

As the big names in F1, including Lewis Hamilton and Daniel Ricciardo, rip around the 4.361 km Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve 70 times this weekend, a fleet of Hangcha forklifts will be strategically positioned in nearby paddocks.

The forklifts, with capacities ranging from 6,000 lbs to 22,000 lbs (2.7 T to 10 T), will be used for the event setup and post-race disassembly.

Last year a staggering 345,000 race fans attended the event over three days, solidifying its status as a cornerstone in the international motorsport calendar.

Hangcha Canada and EMU, both based in Québec, say they are ideally positioned to support the event’s logistics.

“We’re thrilled to return for another year as the race’s forklift service provider. Last year, the team brought over 35 Hangcha forklifts that worked in the paddocks serving all race teams,” says Louanne Rioux, sales and marketing director at Hangcha Canada.

“It sweetens the deal to do it alongside EMU, our exclusive Québec dealer since 2021.

“EMU has been honoured and recognised as a top-performing dealer for Hangcha Canada and we look forward to delivering another year of exceptional service to the racing community.”
