“Compared to the standard five year contract, it’s very competitive,” said Neil Warren, used equipment, rental and workshop director, Jungheinrich UK.

Jungheinrich launches Milton Keynes showroom

Jungheinrich UK has launched a new “Forkcourt” showroom and business hub in Milton Keynes. The site will be a drop-in place for local customers to look at the company’s range of remanufactured forklift trucks.

The new facility has been designed to look like a car showroom, where people are able to drop in when and as they choose without an appointment.

“The Milton Keynes ‘Forkcourt’ is an opportunity to showcase the quality of these five-star refurbishments and their economic, technical and ecological benefits to our customers in Milton Keynes and the surrounding area,” said Warren. “Combined with our new Business Hub concept, we look forward to working more collaboratively to support local industry and the materials handling and intralogistics requirements of the companies it is comprised of.”
