Mansfields has added of 15 new Hyster Li-ion machines
Hiremech has completed the delivery of 15 new Hyster machines, fitted with lithium-ion batteries, to Mansfields.
The new fleet is a mix of four-wheel forklifts and platform pallet trucks, which will be used to boost productivity at Mansfields' 20+ farms across the South East region.
Fruit provider Mansfields has completed rolling out state-of-the-art production across all its facilities, together with a carbon-zero scheme and an environmental strategy to match, and the new machines will help achieve greater levels of performance and efficiency.
Hiremech managing director Paul Green says: "From our initial conversations, they made it clear that any new equipment would need to be energy-efficient. We were quickly able to present a suitable solution of Hyster trucks fitted with lithium-ion batteries.
"The team at Mansfields were impressed with the energy savings, performance and opportunity charging that this offered and, following agreement of the deal earlier in 2020, the equipment has arrived on-time, on-site and ready to go.
"We look forward to working closely with Mansfields and supporting their equipment requirements as their business continues to grow."
