Impact, the Cat Lift Trucks distributor, is expanding its range with Automated Guide Vehicles (AGV) by Finnish company Rocla.

Impact to distribute Roca AGVsThe finish company has been a part of Mistsubishi Nichiyu Forklift Group since 2009.

Terry Kendrew, Impact managing director, said: “Rocla is at the forefront of AGV technology – and Impact recognises its transformative potential for the UK’s industries. Through our agreement with Rocla, we can now offer a new approach to manufacturing and logistics – and a chance to realise cost-savings that will bring down a company’s bottom line.

According to Kendrew, the AGVs are ideally suited to repetitive jobs.

“By tasking a Rocla AGV with accomplishing that task, companies can get the most out of their workforce, and move that human operator to a more important, productive position on the production line,” he said.
