One of the UK’s leading names in the field of forklift truck attachments has come to the aid of one of its customers in need of a practical solution to a manual handling dilemma.
Newtown-based Contact Attachments, a specialist in the manufacture of accessories for the forklift truck industry, recently supplied its innovative forklift tipping skip to Ruskim Seafoods, one of the leading importers and distributors of seafood, meat and poultry across Europe.
John Wood, General/Transport Manager at Ruskim Seafoods, commented: "In our industry, it is vital that working areas are kept clear of debris, and that we are able to safely and speedily remove rubbish from the warehouse to an appropriate skip or waste container.
"The forklift tipping skip that we have been supplied is ideal for this purpose and has greatly reduced the need for personnel to manually handle our waste, which has helped immensely in speeding up our processes and improving our productivity."
Contact Attachment’s skips have unique twin locks and a simple release mechanism, and all come with pre-drilled castor plates, safety security chains, and heavy duty fork pockets, as standard. They are also available in a variety of colours to enable effective waste segregation.
Jason Cadman, Technical Sales Consultant at Contact Attachments, said: "Ruskim Seafoods was looking for an effective way of transferring wrapping waste from its warehouse to its main yard, and we were delighted to be able to provide them with a highly effective solution in the form of our tipping skip, which we would recommend to anyone looking to tackle waste handling and collection issues."
Contact Attachments has been designing and manufacturing forklift truck attachments from its base in Newtown, Mid Wales, for over 40 years and is recognised as the quality leader of truck attachments in the UK.
