UK flooring manufacturer eliminates risk of injuries with electric-operated handling tugs

Derbyshire-based flooring manufacturer Forbo Flooring has greatly reduced the risk of accidents and injuries to its workforce after investing in new electric-operated tugs for moving heavy rolls of flooring between production lines.

Ian Theyer, Production Manager Printing Line at Forbo Flooring UK Ltd comments: "Prior to investing in two electric-operated handling tugs from MasterMover, we had a number of near misses. We therefore decided to look for an alternative solution for moving the chariots that would eliminate the risk of injuries or accidents to the staff." After talking to a number of different handling machine suppliers, the company selected the MasterTug MT5-400 from MasterMover Ltd.
