Health foods wholesaler Tree of Life has expanded its fleet of forklift trucks to increase handling capacity after winning new business.
Based in Newcastle Under Lyme, it already supplies around 1,200 independent health food stores in the UK, and needed to increase handling capacity at its 85,000sq ft warehouse following new contracts wins.
To meet the extra work-load Tree of Life has brought in nine more Yale forklifts, reach trucks, high level order pickers and power pallet trucks with the help of long-standing equipment supplier Briggs Equipment.
Tom Millington, health, safety and facilities manager at Tree of Life said: “I have worked with Yale equipment for the past 10 years and it is excellent quality, built for ever increasing business demands. We have seen some great growth in our industry and this shows in the relationship we have with Briggs Equipment. The service is always fast and efficient, whether we require an engineer on site, or want to hold a meeting with our account manager. I am pleased we are going into our eleventh year with a truly dedicated and professional supplier.”
