German landscaping and horticultural company Ferdinand Wiese & Sohn GmbH has turned to Yale dealer MF Gabelstapler to identify a materials handling solution for its building yard. The new Yale UX Series range proved to be the ideal solution for the company's intermittent needs. Ferdinand Wiese was established over 70 years ago. Based in and around Hamburg, it is expert in the construction of new outdoor spaces, tree pruning, and maintenance. The company also builds children's playgrounds in schools and public areas, providing new opportunities for kids to get outside for fresh air and to have fun. The company needed to replace an existing truck in its building yard and enlisted the help of MF Gabelstapler. "We are careful not to simply sell equipment to our customers; we work with them to find the perfect fit and configure it," says Bendix Sperber, salesperson at MF Gabelstapler. "We design the solution personally with the customer. It doesn't matter whether the customer needs a single device or a full fleet; everyone is of equal importance and receives first-class, personalised advice throughout the sales process." Taking into consideration the equipment being replaced in the work yard and the budget, both a used truck and a Yale Veracitor VX were suggested in the initial discussion. However, it soon became clear the Yale UX Series was the way forward. The customer was convinced by the level of performance of the Yale UX Series, as well as the attractive price. The company had perceived Yale to be a premium brand in the materials handling market, but learned through MF Gabelstapler that Yale offers new trucks for all budgets. "We're very pleased with the simple efficiency of the Yale GDP35UX. The Yale UX Series is a reliable all-rounder that can handle our intermittent tasks easily," says Daniel Hahn, CEO at Ferdinand Wiese & Sohn. "The price was unbeatable." Used in the loading and offloading of trucks, the Yale UX Series truck moves a variety of loads around the yard. These are mainly pallets of goods but can often include big bags or, on rare occasions, attachments for the tractors and earthmovers. To enable it to transport these bulky loads with ease, the Yale truck features side shift and fork extensions. The Yale UX Series was introduced in 2020, aimed at customers with low-intensity applications. Although they may only be used for short periods at a time, they are designed to provide the high levels of efficiency and productivity associated with the Yale product range.
