Jungheinrich will extend its refurbishing operation

Jungheinrich has opened its second used equipment refurbishing plant in Ploiesti, Romania. With the new site, which covers some 5,000 sqm, the company hopes to meet the growing demand for second-hand materials handling equipment and create capacity for further growth.

In Ploiesti, EJE electric pedestrian pallet trucks and EFG electric counterbalance trucks will be reconditioned for the European market with immediate effect.

Jungheinrich claims to be the first industrial company to take on the challenge of refurbishing materials handling trucks industrially and in premium quality. The company promises that its used trucks are as good as new after reconditioning.

With the refurbishment plant now open in Ploiesti, Jungheinrich is further expanding its existing capacities and optimising its structures and processes in the used equipment sector. Alongside Dresden, Ploiesti is Jungheinrich's largest site for the reconditioning of industrial trucks. The new plant will allow Jungheinrich to increase its refurbishment capacity by 25% by 2025.

Tino Alban, plant manager of the Dresden Used Equipment Centre, says: "The general trend towards sustainability is reflected in the continuously rising demand for our industrially refurbished used trucks. They are a good solution, especially for environmentally conscious customers, because, by reconditioning used equipment, we save about 80% of CO2 compared to new production. In the Corona pandemic, many price-conscious customers are turning to the cheaper but also well-performing used units, which are optimal for low to medium usage times or as stand-by solutions."

While the Ploiesti site will undertake the reconditioning of EJE and EFG products, the Dresden plant is responsible for all other truck types as well as system trucks. Jungheinrich's European sales centres deliver their trucks, which are mainly returned from transfer of use contracts, to the two plants for reconditioning. In addition, reconditioning for the Asian market takes place in Bangkok and in Qingpu in China.
