Bespoke forklift truck attachments

Contact Attachments, based in Newtown, Mid Wales, recently designed and supplied one of its specialist products to Cargotec in Ireland, to be supplied with a Hiab Moffett Truck Mounted Forklift to one of its key customers in Portugal. 

Michael O'Reilly, product manager HIAB, TMFL Product Business, said: "Our client required a specialist product that would enable its team of forklift operators to carry wide loads through narrow access areas with ease. Contact Attachments was able to design and supply a custom-built piece of equipment which was ideally suited to the situation.”

The product, a four-fork attachment, is specially designed to handle wide unpalletised loads safely and to help reduce the possibility of damage by spreading the load over all four of the forks, creating a more secure and stable user experience. 

Each of the attachments is tailor-made to suit the precise application of every individual client and is produced using cutting-edge design software, ensuring the highest quality and full certification for health and safety regulations. 

Jason Cadman, technical sales consultant at Contact Attachments, commented:  “We are absolutely delighted to have been able to provide an effective solution to Cargotec, allowing them to offer the perfect truck and attachment combination to their customer in Portugal.”

Contact Attachments has been designing and manufacturing forklift truck attachments from its base in Newtown, Mid Wales, for over 40 years
