Overcome Challenges With Forklifts for the Metal Industry

You already know metal moving comes with challenges. You can overcome them with advanced metal industry industrial equipment that elevates your production process and changes the way you handle metal. 

Harsh Environments

Keep Costs Low

Harsh Environments

Material handling equipment is subject to abrasive dust at metal recycling facilities and extreme heat in metal foundries. Safeguard your equipment and operators with industrial vehicles specifically designed to withstand the heat.

Limited Budgets

Combat the Tough Conditions

Limited Budgets

Insufficient capital for the equipment you need can hinder your operations and ability to produce your desired output. Consider lift truck leasing programs and implementing a thorough maintenance plan to lengthen the life span of your equipment. 

Load Variation

Keep Costs Low

Load Variation

Metal products come in a variety of shapes, sizes and weights, making it challenging to find a uniform material handling solution. Upgrade your fleet with high-capacity lift trucks that offer the versatility you need to handle different loads. You can also use specialized attachments for more load variation. 

Safety Concerns

Safety Concerns

Within the steel and metal industry, maximizing compliance and minimizing risk is crucial. Equipment that easily handles variable loads can reduce the likelihood of workplace injuries. You can also employ telematics for training updates and to track lift truck access.
