Lencrow Materials Handling is completing eight years as a dealer for EP products in Australia.
EP is a major boutique forklift and materials handling equipment manufacturer in China with over 200 models and types of products. Early this year EP opened their new purpose-built manufacturing plant in Anji in Zhejiang Province.
The new EP manufacturing plant covers a total area of 80,000m², housing the design, R&D, product and quality control facilities as well as six manufacturing lines.
Lencrow has sold 300 EP units this year, up 25% on the sales last year. These include power pallet jacks, pedestrian stackers, ride on reach trucks, 3- and 4-wheel counterbalance forklifts, IC and diesel forklifts as well as a range of manual handling equipment from hand pallet jacks to scissor tables.
Ross Grassick, General Manager of Lencrow says that the EP units are very reliable and user-friendly, and built using components sourced from leading brands such as Curtis, Danaher and Zapi in addition to engines from Nissan, Isuzu and Cummins as well as transmissions and axles from ZF, Kessler and Okamura.
EP has dealers throughout North and South America, and is well represented across Europe, Asia and South Africa.
