Palace Chemicals invests six figure sum in new fork lift fleet

September 2018

Palace Chemicals has invested in excess of £500,000 in 15 fork lift trucks from Warrington-based Linde Sterling, to move over 200,000 tonnes of building product each year.

Linde Material Handling is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of forklift trucks and warehouse equipment, and has forged a relationship with the company over the last 40 years.

Charlie Clapham, Managing Director at the firm which is now a leading name in the production of building products, tile adhesives and DIY products said: “Our decision to replace our existing fleet of fork lift trucks was a necessary step for us as a business.  We move over 200,000 tonnes of product each year, so the mechanical handling of such a huge volume is an extremely key component to our business.  The replacement trucks from Linde Sterling are the latest in cutting edge technology with a superb management system that tracks all movements of the vehicles to ensure that safety is at the forefront of our logistics operations.”

When the new trucks arrived, staff were immediately impressed with the additional features and benefits this new technology brings into their working environment which includes dedicated controls to ensure specific trained operator use per vehicle, identification and recording of any irresponsible driving and automated speed adjustment in defined working zones - all made possible by advanced monitoring technology which encourages increasing safety awareness and improves driver competence.

This smart technology also improves fleet maintenance efficiency by identifying underused and overused forklift trucks, early detection of any damage and advanced fault detection.
