Barloworld Handling has announced an exclusive UK supply agreement with Irion Sideloaders, offering a product range designed to handle long and awkward loads such as timber and piping.
Barloworld, one of the largest suppliers of materials handling equipment in the UK, will provide nationwide sales and service support for the Irion brand. The Irion product range is designed for handling long and awkward loads in industries such as textile, wood, timber, building products, steel, cable and aluminium. Its strong durable construction is ideally suited to tough outdoor applications where performance, reliability and operator comfort are of paramount importance.
Graham Jones, General Manager UK Sales at Barloworld Handling comments "We are committed to providing a complete portfolio of durable and reliable handling equipment with superior support for our customers. The Irion range gives a wider choice in specific industry sectors".
Irion, a division of the Terra group of companies, is one of the leading sideloader brands in Europe with manufacturing facilities in Austria and France. The DFQ fixed wheel range is available with diesel/LPG options, hydrostatic transmission, fully enclosed operator cab, a lift capacity between 4 and 8 tonnes and lift heights of up to 8 metres. Irion products are available with an extensive range of options and attachments to suit specific application needs.
"To date, Irion has had little exposure in the UK but with the backing of the Barloworld support infrastructure it represents an excellent new solution in our portfolio to help businesses operate efficiently, reliably and at reduced cost when handling long and bulky loads" adds Graham Jones.
Barloworld specialists provide free site surveys and advice on all elements of a material handling fleet including service, finance, short term hire and fleet management.
