A growing range of forklifts
ACE’s range of forklifts and forklift trucks (and allied products such as pallet trucks and stackers) is primarily being demanded by the warehousing, transportation and logistics sectors. While the company offers diesel forklifts (1.5 t-3.5 t), electric forklifts (1.5 t-8 t), and LPG forklifts (3 t) and manual, semi-electric and fully electric variants of pallet trucks and stackers, “diesel variants of forklifts and manual material handlers are preferred for their lower upfront cost”, says Pradeep Sharma, President, Action Construction Equipment (ACE).
ElectroMech is the market leader in electrically operated cranes and caters to economically vital sectors like infrastructure, steel and metals, oil and gas, energy (hydropower, nuclear) and renewable energy like wind. It has expanded the range of its material handling solutions and added forklifts and lift trucks in association with Hyster Yale. This product range serves the Indian market with a focus on the retail, 3PL, logistics, warehousing and ecommerce sectors.
Cranedge, a wholly owned subsidiary of ElectroMech, provides lifecycle services (annual maintenance, handling distress situations, repairs, refurbishment, relocation, etc) to material handling equipment users.
“We are excited about developments in retail and ecommerce, manufacturing plants, automobile, marquee infrastructure projects like bridges, metros, expressways, highways in India and outside, large energy projects like hydropower and wind energy, nuclear applications, and the oil and gas sector,” says Tushar Mehendale, Managing Director, ElectroMech.
Sharma expects growth in the retail, automotive, ecommerce, logistics, freight and cargo and pharmaceutical sectors to drive demand as the Make in India initiative takes root and companies become more focused on reducing labour costs and implementing worker safety norms.
