50,000th Hiab Moffett Truck-mounted Forklift handed over to Irish customer

Last week, on the 14th September 2012, the 50,000th Truck-mounted Forklift rolled off the assembly line at Dundalk-based Cargotec Ireland, representing a significant production landmark for this transport industry innovator.

Since its invention more than 40 years ago, the Hiab Moffett Truck-mounted Forklift has become a byword for innovation in transportation, enabling faster deliveries and safer carriage of goods to companies worldwide. The off-road capabilities of these forklifts in particular are a unique feature and a key differentiator for the companies who use them.

Constant refinement of the Hiab Moffett M-Range has recently been augmented by the development of the E-Range, the world’s first Lithium-ion battery powered truck-mounted forklift which will be launched early 2013. The emission free E-Range is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and meets strict criteria regarding energy efficiency and noise pollution.

The Dundalk multiassembly unit is Cargotec’s centre of excellence for Truck-mounted Forklift research, development and production, producing machines that are exported to more than 35 countries.
"Cargotec Truck-mounted Forklifts are renowned for their advanced technology, quality and reliability," explains Michael O’Reilly, Product Manager, Hiab Moffett Truck-mounted Forklifts. "Our extensive range offers machines to suit all application requirements."

Cargotec Ireland’s position as a leader in Truck-mounted Forklift technology is in no small part down to the people who work there, he adds. "Talented engineers and a committed workforce have helped to develop a product that is unique and constantly developing with the changing requirements of our customers. The production of the 50,000th truck-mounted forklift is an impressive achievement, which would not have been possible without the expertise and commitment of everybody who has contributed since the first truck-mounted forklift was build in 1967", Michael O’Reilly concludes.
