Russell Roof Tiles has taken delivery of 11 new Linde Material Handling X Range electric forklifts across three sites in the UK.

The forklifts, representing an almost GBP 1 million (USD1.3 million) investment, will be deployed at two of Russel Roof Tiles’ sites in Burton in Staffordshire and one in Lochmaben in Scotland.

Russel Roof Tiles operations director Bruce Laidlaw says: “The investment reflects our dedication to sustainability and embracing greener technology. 

“The addition of our new electric forklifts will not only enhance our efficiencies but also help us reduce our environmental impact and save on escalating energy costs.”

Linde Material Handling (UK) account manager Chris Probert says: “We are pleased to be part of Russell Roof Tiles’ pledge to become net zero by 2040.

“The introduction of our new electric trucks will play a big part in reaching this goal. We look forward to working together for many years to come.”

Russel Roof Tiles manufactures a range of concrete roof tiles and uPVC fittings and accessories for pitched roofing across the UK.
