Jungheinrich's 50,000th refurbished truck get to work
The Jungheinrich Used Equipment Centre has delivered its 50,000th forklift. The milestone vehicle was a Jungheinrich EFG 216k counterbalance forklift.
Julien Caloud, sales manager at Jungheinrich in France, received the vehicle as part of a ceremonial handover at a vineyard in Radebeul, near Dresden.
Jungheinrich has been restoring second-hand industrial vehicles at its site in the outskirts of the Saxon state capital since 2006.
"Thanks to unique industrial reconditioning in one of the most state-of-the-art plants in Europe, our restored trucks are some of the best used vehicles, and our JUNGSTARS are just as much part of the Jungheinrich fleet as new trucks," explains Tino Alban, production manager.
A continuous increase in production numbers has led to considerable expansions of the production plant since it was founded. Today, the Used Equipment Centre in Dresden covers a surface area of 19,000 sqm. At the plant, 250 employees recondition around 8,000 industrial vehicles every year.
The used vehicles are reconditioned subject to the highest quality standards. All wear parts and safety-relevant components are restored or replaced. Jungheinrich claims it is hard to distinguish a used forklift truck from a new one. Only the operating hours counter, which remains unchanged, and the price reveal the history of the used vehicle.
