“It suits our purpose absolutely perfectly,” says Paul Angell, Manager of Toolbank’s branch in Exeter. “We have freed up space and can handle more loads more efficiently.”
Toolbank specialises in the distribution of quality hand and power tools made by many of the world’s leading tool manufacturers and operates from 12 strategically placed warehouses throughout the United Kingdom. The company had previously been using a conveyor at its Exeter branch to move items between the ground and mezzanine floors but this was proving to be unreliable. It was also taking up a lot of space.
The business has been growing and the company wanted to introduce new materials handling equipment that would enable it to move items more easily between the two floors. The company’s Dartford branch had previously looked at the Mezzanine Goods Lift from Penny Hydraulics and recognised it would be suitable for use in Exeter. The Mezz Lift is a robust and versatile platform lift for handling all sorts of loads up to 300kg safely and efficiently. It offers users a cost effective way to comply with manual handling regulations and reduce the risk of injury to employees. The entire handling process can be undertaken by a single person without any manual lifting to promote safety and productivity.
