Alec Tiranti Ltd is a leading UK manufacturer and supplier of sculptors’ tools, materials and studio equipment for carving, modelling, mould making, casting and restoration.
Based in Thatcham, Berkshire, the company supply a wide range of materials, equipment and tools to the art industry and universities in London. The site also includes a shop selling art materials to the general public.
When the time came to purchase a fork truck to unload pallets of raw materials, John Grimshaw at Tiranti turned to Linde Material Handling as he had experienced Linde products in the past.
A low utilisation application such as this did not warrant the purchase of a new truck, so Used Truck Sales Manager, Paul Deller from Linde South East recommended a Linde Approved truck which suited John’s budget perfectly.
“I was looking for a high quality truck that wouldn’t cost the earth” John commented. A ‘Test Drive’ demo of a Linde Approved Used truck at the Tiranti site secured John’s decision to purchase not one, but two Linde Approved trucks, a reach truck and a powered pallet truck.
John concluded, “Backed up by Linde with a support centre just round the corner made Linde Approved the obvious choice for me.”
Linde Approved Used trucks offer an excellent cost effective alternative to the investment in a new model. Typically ex-contract hire, all Linde Approved trucks have been maintained from new by Linde’s national network companies and their 23 fully equipped support centres nationwide. Linde Approved trucks are prepared to three levels which are designed to suit individual budgets and applications. Only genuine Linde parts are fitted during the refurbishment process and LOLER/PUWER certification is provided with every machine.
