Combilift recently marked a further milestone when its 60,000th unit came off the production lines at the company’s headquarters in Monaghan, Ireland, and was shipped to the other side of the world.
Metroll, the proud recipient of the truck, has branches across Australia, and the new Combi-CB3000 will be a further addition to its fleet of 13 Combilifts that are operating throughout the Metroll Group, with another 10 already on order. These range from 3 tonne multidirectional units to a highly customised 10 tonne model.
Combilift number 60,000 will be working at the site in Toowoomba and has been fitted with features such as 4.9m triplex mast with a 3,050mm spreader to safely and easily manage the long loads that are typically handled by Metroll.
“Like most businesses, we are very busy and we’re also growing at a significant rate, so space has become a premium resource,” said Vic Josephs, Operations Manager at Metroll. “With this unit we can utilise our space more efficiently while at the same time operating safely. This forklift allows our machinery to get into tighter spaces and for us to space our racks more closely together to maximise factory floor space.”
“This is a great achievement for Combilift, particularly as almost every truck we manufacture is a one-off, designed for specific and individual requirements,” added Martin McVicar, CEO and Co-Founder, Combilift. “There are very few other companies, if any, that can offer this level of customisation while manufacturing in such volume. The first half of this year has been by far the best in our 23-year history for the number of orders we have received – not just for Combi-CB models but across our complete product range.”
