One of the UK’s leading forklift attachment firms has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to health and safety by supporting a specialist abrasive finishes company in the mitigation of onsite accidents and injuries.
Wales-based Contact Attachments supplied one of its innovative forklift platforms to Abrasive Finishing Systems, based in Ripon, to enable the firm’s employees to move machines in and out of its demonstration room on the first floor of its building in a safer and more efficient manner.
Barry Crompton, Managing Director at Abrasive Finishing Systems, explained: “We’re really pleased with the forklift transfer platform and have already put it to good use. The Contact Attachments team understood our needs perfectly and were able to adapt the design to suit our specific needs.”
The goods carrying forklift transfer platform is designed to provide a protected transportation of heavy equipment such as pallets, and is fixed as standard with a 20 degree ramp at the front to enable wheeled products to be loaded and unloaded easily.
Jason Cadman, Technical Sales Director at Contact Attachments, said: “Using the latest SolidWorks design technology, we offer a state-of-the-art custom design service so that we can tailor our products to specifically suit clients’ handling requirements, as well as test them for strength and safety to ensure complete compatibility with the application requirements.
“With over 30 years’ experience in the sector, we have built up an enviable reputation for providing high quality platform equipment, which is all manufactured in-house to ensure optimum safety for the end user.
