Westcoast Wool & Livestock forklift operators and directors with the new Linde machines
Westcoast Wool & Livestock has upgraded its forklift fleet as part of a $1 million upgrade investment.
The company added a modern forklift fleet at the Bibra Lake wool store, while the existing core machine and forklifts at the site will be transferred to its Katanning facility, where there have been further upgrades and refurbishment.
Westcoast Wool & Livestock director and WA wool manager Brad Faithfull says thanks to increasing support from growers, the company was pleased to invest in the local industry and some of the most modernised testing systems operating in Australia.
A new fleet of Linde forklifts with hydrostatic drives has replaced the existing clutch-driven forklifts at Westcoast's Bibra Lake store.
Westcoast Wool & Livestock originally commenced as Westcoast Wools in 1996 and remains one of the only companies that operates a wool brokering, private treaty and export business. It has been one of the top volume wool buyers from WA over the past decade.
