Excel Laminating Expands All-Cat® Lift Truck Fleet With Impact Handling

Excel Laminating has added a sixth Cat® lift truck to its operation, supplied by sole UK distributor Impact Handling, after seeing substantial fuel savings across its entire fleet.

The Hull-based company which specialises in providing raw, laminated and engineered sheet material to the construction industry, chose the Cat Lift Trucks GP30N machine for its optimum fuel efficiency, after seeing fuel consumption fall by almost 30 per cent in the four years it has been operating an all-Cat lift truck fleet.

Jeff Thomas, Excel Laminating’s Managing Director, says: “Our business has expanded recently, making it necessary for us to grow our fleet to meet demand. We were really impressed with the low fuel consumption and reliability of Cat Lift Trucks and their popularity with our operators made them a natural choice.”

The new truck joins five other Cat lift trucks and will be used intensively five days a week in Excel Laminating’s 60,000ft² warehouse and in the yard loading and unloading delivery vehicles. All on-site servicing is provided via mobile engineers from Impact Handling’s Hull depot.

“We’ve worked with Impact Handling for almost a decade, during which time their service has been beyond reproach. Their prompt and professional attitude has really impressed us; we trust them implicitly with our materials handling fleet,” he adds.

The durable GP30N counterbalance truck offers a lifting capacity of up to 3 tonnes and is fitted with a powerful engine with a proven reputation for low emissions and fuel consumption. The PowerShift transmission guarantees easy operation, with fingertip hydraulic controls mounted on a fully adjustable armrest, ensuring optimum load handling and easy manoeuvrability.

The clean LPG engines fitted in all GP models come with a standard 3-way closed loop catalytic converter, providing the performance and torque necessary when trucks are required for use in demanding applications and outdoors.

Excel Laminating was established in 1997 and is an independent family-run business that has grown to become the off-site construction industry’s leading supplier of pre-decorated linings, raw plasterboards and composite internal and external panel systems.
