Online PR News – 02-June-2011 – – A NEW and innovative range of handling and lifting equipment are already proving to be a hit within months of being added to Slingsby's new catalogue.
Although the company now sells all types of workplace equipment it has been supplying a market leading range of trolleys, trucks and tugs since 1893 when company founder, Harry Crowther Slingsby, began producing products to move heavy loads horizontally around large buildings.
The latest additions to the range feature electric motors and are designed to pull, push and steer wheeled loads of up to 1000kg, with hardly any effort required by the operator.
Dominic Slingsby, Managing Director of Slingsby explains: “These state of the art tugs are simple to use and enable anyone to manoeuvre substantial loads around confined spaces by literally flicking a switch. Although there are cheaper alternatives out there, these are among the best tugs in the world at the moment and as a result they are immediately generating interest due to their huge potential and versatility.
“They are designed to be used in all types of premises from hospitals to warehouses and shops through to factories. These products will immediately increase productivity, reduce manual handling and improve safety and for larger premises there's also an option to add a ride-on platform.”
They come with built-in rechargeable batteries, an accelerator system that can be regulated to specific limits and they can be adapted to work with a wide range of trolleys, carts and pallet systems. Visit www.slingsby.ie or call 1850 200 633.
Slingsby was established in Bradford during 1893 by Harry Crowther Slingsby who designed and created a range of robust trucks and trolleys to move heavy loads horizontally around large buildings. Several members of the Slingsby family remain on the board of directors and whilst the company is still famous for its manual handling equipment, it now supplies more than 35,000 workplace products such as storage boxes and safety signs to a full range of industries via its catalogues and website.
