Fortec Distribution Network has said invested heavily in its Northamptonshire hub to improve efficiency and capacity.
The company has invested £250,000 in a new fleet of 36 forklift trucks from Still, while an additional £180,000 has been spent on upgrading the roof of its 210,000 sq ft warehouse.
The state-of-the-art RX70 LPG forklifts will enable its warehouse team to load and unload more quickly, ensuring a better service for Fortec pallet network members and customers.
Safety was paramount in the choice of forklift truck, with the RX70 LPG delivering excellent all-round visibility alongside its high performance.
The roof upgrade, which is currently being installed, is designed to provide additional visibility through the use of skylights.
Kevin Buchanan, Pall-Ex Group CEO, commented:
“This is a significant investment that has provided the operations team with more reliable kit, ensuring quicker turnarounds and an all-round better service from the central hub.
