New Tugs Pull In Sales for Slingsby
Released on: June 03, 2011, 3:45 am
A NEW and innovative range of handling and lifting equipment are already proving to be a hit within months of being
added to Slingsby's new catalogue.
Although the company now sells all types of workplace equipment it has been
supplying a market leading range of trolleys, trucks and tugs since 1893 when
company founder, Harry Crowther Slingsby, began producing products to move heavy
loads horizontally around large buildings.
The latest additions to the range feature electric motors and are designed to pull,
push and steer wheeled loads of up to 1000kg, with hardly any effort required by the
Dominic Slingsby, Managing Director of Slingsby explains: “These state of the art
tugs are simple to use and enable anyone to manoeuvre substantial loads around
confined spaces by literally flicking a switch. Although there are cheaper
alternatives out there, these are among the best tugs in the world at the moment and
as a result they are immediately generating interest due to their huge potential and
“They are designed to be used in all types of premises from hospitals to warehouses
and shops through to factories. These products will immediately increase
productivity, reduce manual handling and improve safety and for larger premises
there's also an option to add a ride-on platform.”
They come with built-in rechargeable batteries, an accelerator system that can be
regulated to specific limits and they can be adapted to work with a wide range of
trolleys, carts and pallet systems. Visit www.slingsby.ie or call 1850 200 633.
Slingsby was established in Bradford during 1893 by Harry Crowther Slingsby who
designed and created a range of robust trucks and trolleys to move heavy loads
horizontally around large buildings. Several members of the Slingsby family remain
on the board of directors and whilst the company is still famous for its manual
handling equipment, it now supplies more than 35,000 workplace products such as storage boxes and safety signs to a full range of industries via its catalogues and website.
