Baoli expands African forklift footprint

Baoli expands African forklift footprint

Baoli, an important player in the international forklift truck manufacture scene, present in 26 EMEA markets, is currently expanding into the African market as well, by entering an important agreement with ICOGEF, a company that has been operating in the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire since 2014 and has invested in various businesses, including import and sale of frozen products.

This is a partnership destined to last over time, which sees Baoli take the field for the supply of forklift trucks. The company has actually received an order of 70 machines, divided between two important companies operating in the food sector, namely: SCODI, a colossus of canned tuna processing, ordered 22 units of Baoli CB, while Kouma et Frères, an agri-food company operating in Mali, ordered 5 units of KBD40.

"The Ivory Coast market offers excellent development prospects for our company, the first capable of combining a competitive value for money – in terms of price-quality ratio - with reliability and high-level services - explains Giovanni Grandi, Baoli EMEA's business development manager – In this framework, the agreement signed with ICOGEF represents an important step towards the expansion in the African territory. Thanks to this structure, we will be able to rely on a large warehouse of forklift trucks ready for delivery, spare parts available in just 48 hours and spaces for the direct training of the personnel in charge of maintenance. Definitely an absolute guarantee both for our distributors and for our customers".
