Linde Material Handling recently completed its millionth counterbalance truck on its Aschaffenburg assembly line and then presented the vehicle to customer Colorobbia España.

The completion of the milestone vehicle was celebrated with a minute-long indoor fireworks display of red Bengal lights, sparklers, smoke and lots of glitter raining down around the figure "1,000,000".

The next day, the latest generation Linde diesel forklift with a load capacity of 3.5 T set off on the journey to its future workplace at Colorobbia España on the east coast of Spain, with the signatures of all assembly employees written on the back of it. There, it will reinforce a fleet of 60 vehicles.

"We have been relying on Linde brand forklifts for 24 years now and particularly appreciate the trucks' user-friendliness and safety," says Gonzalo Trilles de Castro, managing director of Colorobbia España.

Coincidentally, the Spanish company is celebrating its centenary this year.

Linde has been manufacturing counterbalance trucks at its Aschaffenburg production site since 1959.

Linde is meanwhile poised for another milestone - the launch of its new electric forklift generation in June this year.
