The Melbourne-based Natures Organics has taken delivery of 12 new forklifts from Toyota Material Handling Australia for narrow drive-in racking applications.
A family-owned Australian company, Natures Organics replaced their existing fleet of rental units from another manufacturer that had been in service for five years with 12 new 1.8-tonne and 2.5-tonne payload Toyota 32-8FG18 and 32-8FG25 forklift trucks in August. Prior to the rental fleet, Natures Organics had used Toyota forklifts.
Warehouse Manager Steven Nadj says they are glad to go back to Toyota forklifts for the reliability and versatility. He explains the Toyota forklift fleet will rarely be out of service thanks to regular monthly servicing and strong after-sales support. All the forklifts have been modified to accommodate narrow drive-in racking.
Natures Organics was also particular that they dealt directly with the manufacturer/supplier and not go through an agent.
Natures Organics' Toyota forklift fleet is used to load and unload pallets of its range of over 40 products, encompassing laundry, dishwashing, household cleaning, skin and hair care products that are available in major supermarket chains throughout Australia and internationally.
Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) offers a comprehensive range of Toyota internal combustion and battery electric counter balance forklifts, as well as BT lift trucks and Raymond warehouse equipment, providing a one-stop shop for material handling equipment.
