BYD Forklift Europe increases presence in UK and Ireland

BYD Forklift Europe increases presence in UK and Ireland

Just over a year from its launch in the UK and Ireland, BYD Forklift Europe is now represented by 11 specialised dealers spread across both countries.

BYD’s range of Iron-Phosphate powered fork lift trucks lead the materials handling industry with high efficiency, low maintenance machines which deliver remarkable operational cost savings when compared with conventional electric or engine powered models.

BYD Forklift Europe has successfully entered the markets of Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, the UK and Ireland and last year announced its presence in Spain and Portugal also.

Companies switching to operating BYD forklift trucks can immediately enjoy the benefit of reduced investment, always a top-level issue. Operating cost savings of up to 40% due to the latest maintenance-free Iron-Phosphate battery in combination with the user-friendly high-speed charging technology of BYD make the decision much easier. As fantastic as the savings effect sounds, they have been fully proven. No other technology in the materials handling/logistics process has such a comparable savings potential.

BYD is the largest maker of rechargeable batteries in the world, employs 220,000 people – including more than 16,500 research and development engineers and had a turnover of more than £11.8 billion in 2016. So BYD Forklift customers can be assured of long term and professional back up and support.

The difference between conventional, traditional lead-acid batteries and the original BYD Iron-Phosphate batteries is dramatic and the advantages are clear to see.
