The forklift trucks will be used at our Creeting St Peter headquarters, for everything from delivering concrete for manufacture to loading the finished products on the trailers for delivery to our growing number of customers.
Paul Sheppard, Poundfield’s production manager, explained that “this is a significant investment for us and one very much needed as the company is securing even more orders than anticipated in our ambitious business plan.
“We had Mitsubishis many years ago and decided to go back to them due to their reliability, user-friendly controls and robust design. In a business which makes precast concrete in so many shapes and sizes, we knew these machines will be more than up to the job – and so enhancing the quality of our products and customer service.”
We commissioned Eastern Forklift Trucks to adapt the vehicles to the bespoke specifications needed for the range of uses to which the vehicles will be put.
“We have worked with Eastern for many years – one of many long-term business relationships that underscores our focus on quality – and we’re delighted to have used them for this project” added Paul.
Rob Cramsie, sales director at Eastern Forklift Trucks, said “we supplied Poundfield Precast with their first ever forklift truck. Working with Poundfield for such a long time since, allowed us to very quickly understand what they were looking for from these particular ones.
“It’s great being associated with such a strongly performing local company and being able to share in their success.”
Matt Moss, commercial director at Poundfield Precast, added “we have built up a strong nationwide reputation for quality products and customer service since the company was founded in 1999. A key component in this success has been our willingness to invest in quality equipment and training for our staff.
“These 10 Mitsubishis are further evidence of our ambitions to consolidate our position as the market leader in the precast concrete sector.”
