Linde helps Davicon lift higher

Linde helps Davicon lift higher

Finding a fork lift truck for hire can be a fairly simple task, but when the requirement is for lifting to 11 metres, it can prove a more complicated challenge.

Davicon is a mezzanine designer and manufacturer located in Brierley Hill, specialising in mezzanine floors and mezzanine levels. The company has designed, manufactured and installed mezzanine floors for numerous large, well-known and respected companies, including British Gas, Morrisons, John Lewis, BMW and New Look.

Many of these projects require the need for lifting support which is provided by McLeman Forklift Services Ltd, a division of Linde Forklift Truck Hire. With one of the largest lift truck rental fleets in the UK, Linde Forklift Truck Hire is not only able to help with standard trucks, but its comprehensive fleet also consists of trucks with more complex specifications.

Ian Priest, project manager at Davicon, commented: "The trucks from McLemans enable us to unload lorries and lift steel structures which sometimes can mean lifts up to 11m. The availability of this type of machine on hire for either long or short periods is imperative to our business."

Using trucks with lift heights to 11m involves the removal of the mast for transportation and re-masting on site by Linde engineers. The engineers return to site and de-mast once the project is complete, ready for the truck to be returned.

Linde Forklift Truck Hire operates one of the largest fork lift truck rental fleets in the UK, with over 10,000 trucks available to be hired ranging from one day to as long as required. Linde’s stock ranges from pallet trucks right up to counterbalance trucks with capacities of 52 tonnes, making it able to supply machines for every type of application.
