A leading forklift attachment company is celebrating success after supplying two of its specialist products used to streamline processes at a busy manufacturing site in St Leonards on Sea.
Plastica Pools, the UK’s leading manufacturer of specialist swimming pool covers, liners, and reel systems, called upon Mid Wales-based Contact Attachments to provide two Tipping Skips, used to help the company store and dispose of waste materials more effectively.
Jason Cadman, Sales and Technical Director at Contact Attachments, explained: “We were thrilled to be asked to provide a waste disposal solution to Plastica Pools. The Tipping Skip we recommended to them is ideal for handling waste that is light, such as paper, cardboard and packaging – and in their case, off-cuts of swimming pool covers and accessories. With a mesh extension on three sides providing an extra 500mm of cubic volume capacity, they can handle the maximum amount of waste before being tipped into the compactor.”
The meshed extension Tipping Skips provide a high capacity and additional robustness without increasing the skip’s actual weight, and is one of Contact Attachments’ many Tipping Skip models, which includes regular and heavy duty bins, and auto release tips.
Ady Hall, Production Buyer at Plastica Pools, commented: “The entire process with Contact Attachments from start to finish has been a joy – they provided a competitive quote and guided us through the technical specifications so we knew that what we were ordering suited our specific needs.
“The quality of the skips was top rate, however this pales into insignificance with the quality of service we received as a result of us ordering the wrong size of skips – they couldn’t have been more helpful in averting a potential disaster!”
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.
