To unload delivery trucks at its warehouse, Pie City recently purchased a Baoli electric forklift from Smith Power Equipment. The unit is a perfect fit for the food industry due to its electric motor, which produces no fumes.
Pie City stores specialise in the manufacturing and retailing of a variety of pies, pizzas and fruit juices. Electric has become the most preferred power source in the food industry as companies seek for a solution with no fumes to avoid contamination of food items.
The ‘value for money’ nature of the Baoli forklift range has proved to be key in Adlam Engineering’s recent decision to purchase two Baoli KBD35+ 3,5 t diesel units from local supplier, Smith Power Equipment.
When it took the decision to go into the market for its materials handling equipment needs, Adlam Engineering looked no further than Baoli forklifts, a brand that has gained early traction in the South African market since its launch by Smith Power Equipment (SPE) in late 2018.
Following the acquisition of exclusive importation and distribution rights for AUSA and Baoli, Smith Power Equipment has become a go-to supplier of all things materials handling.
Baoli KBE 25 Lowered Mast with a wide range of products and services under one roof, Smith Power Equipment has over the years redefined the one-stop shop model when it comes to the provision of application-specific equipment solutions specially adapted to suit an array of applications in an array of industries. One industry that has benefitted from this approach is the materials handling sector.
Heneways, one of the leading freight management and logistics operators in South Africa, has taken delivery of the Baoli KBE 25 electric forklift from Smith Power Equipment, a South African importation and distribution company representing leading global equipment brands.
For internal warehouse usage to handle food grade products in its facility, Heneways went into the market for an electric forklift. Paul Hulley, Warehouse & Distribution Manager at Heneways, says the KBE 25 ticked all the right boxes for the freight management company. However, its competitive pricing against other brands in the local market, complemented by the aftermarket support reputation of Smith Power Equipment, largely influenced the buying decision.
Smith Power Equipment, a South African importation and distribution company representing leading global equipment brands, has expanded its offering with the addition of the Baoli range of materials handling equipment to its distribution stable.
As part of its one-stop shop approach, Smith Power Equipment has signed a distributorship agreement with Baoli, a leading global manufacturer of materials handling equipment.
