The Roto Picker's Australian distributor, King Materials Handling, has opened an arm in the US, called King Group LLC, to import and market the device which is revolutionising stock picking from pallets under pallet racking.

Manufactured by Roto Lift, in Bayswater, Victoria, the product was a runner up in the WorkSafe awards and has already sold about 690 units in Australia. King Group LLC managing director Ron King tells Forkliftaction.com News the company is seeking end users and distributors in the USA.
