Solutions for material handling in the metal industry.

The metals processing industry has diverse and demanding requirements relating to the processing and transportation of metal in various forms, including pipes, slabs, coils, and liquid metals. While safety is the main focus for any operator in this industry, sustainability is fast becoming a strong driver for change.

In common with many other industries, operators in metals processing – particularly steel and aluminium producers – are gradually adopting digital solutions to help them increase safety and productivity. Some operators have begun the shift to using electrically powered equipment such as forklifts as part of their handling processes.

We can help you to reduce running costs and increase safety with a flexible, durable range of fit-for-purpose equipment including forklift trucks, terminal tractors and reachstackers – all of which can be specially adapted for challenging environments and demanding loads.
