180 Linde li-ion trucks for Fowler Welch

Fowler Welch has awarded Linde Material Handling a five year contract to supply more than 180 new lithium-ion fork lift trucks, and warehouse equipment.

The trucks will be used at Fowler Welch’s Spalding, Washington, Heywood, Teynham and Hilsea sites.

The trucks include the T25SP ride-on pallet truck, R14 and R16HD reach trucks and E16P electric counterbalance forklift. Each truck is fitted with Linde’s Connect fleet management system.

Fowler Welch technical director Laurie Black said: ‘We were particularly impressed with the range of safety benefits Linde was able to offer on the new fleet of trucks, including the protection of the lithium-ion batteries which we were pleased were quality protected by Linde.

“Sending some of the latest trucks being tested in our warehouses helped us to decide on our final order, and we’re looking forward to seeing the results of our more efficient fleet across our first two sites.”
