Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Hot on the heels of KION Group's announcement of record results, Jungheinrich has released its figures for 2016, also indicating significant growth.
Jungheinrich's success also demonstrates the value of diversification, with a growing contribution from its logistics services arm, its dealer network and, more recently, equipment rentals in China.  
The German giant notes a positive start to the current financial year and expects the world materials handling equipment market to continue growing in 2017. It is tipping growth in Europe, Asia and North America, although it does anticipate a drop in the IC engine-powered counterbalance truck market.

Lencrow and EP to introduce the affordable EPT12-EZ Australasia News
Lencrow has just started to import the new EPT12-EZ mini pallet jack. These units are designed for small flat warehouses. With a capacity of 1200kgs, it has both power drive and lift. The 1390mm turning circle allows it to work in the smallest of warehouses. The unit has a self-weight of only 120kgs, making it only 35kgs heavier than a conventional manual pallet jack. It has the ability to work for 3 hours and with the smart Lithium battery technology, has a charge time of just 2 hours. These units all have a safe braking function that stops the unit when the handles released.

This is the new age of smart materials handling bringing ease of use and improved site safety at a price that will make it affordable to small sites. For more details call Lencrow Materials Handling on 1300 536 276
