Over the past decade, battery-powered forklifts have taken a stronghold in the material handling space. Designed with greater lifting capabilities and a more compact structure, these user-friendly solutions address customers' need for effective use of storage space and efficient material handling. Apart from providing multiple benefits such as top performance, less operating costs, and low maintenance, these electric forklifts have also proven to be significantly useful in addressing an ever-increasing need for providing safe warehouse environments. Unlike liquid-fueled forklifts, electric material handling solutions have zero emissions, making them ideal for interior and warehouse situations.
Bringing an exhaustive range of such material handling solutions is TASK Forklifts, a global material handling company. Focusing on innovation, functionality, and design, TASK Forklifts provides a comprehensive range of efficient and compact pedestrian stackers and support vehicles that can lift significant loads without requiring a large amount of working area. These compact material handling solutions are user-friendly and maximize the use of warehouse space by effectively arranging the inventory.
Being in the manufacturing business for over 38 years, the company has significantly turned the tables for warehouse management space with its patented material handling product, BOA, a Power Steered legless stacker. Loaded with features such as an in-built single-phase charger, up-to 3000 lbs capacity, this legless stacker is designed to work in exceptionally narrow aisles widths. It can be extremely useful in tight areas, especially in foundries, where lifting heavy equipment and heavy products is required. The BOA comes with responsive electric power steering to reduce worker fatigue and make it easier for operators to use the stacker in tight areas.
Another product that the company has recently designed is SIDEWINDER, a narrow width task assist vehicle that allows manual operation for maintenance, repairs on the ceiling, lights air conditioning vents, and many more.
Being at the forefront of design, Sidewinder incorporates a functional, dual-hand operating system that allows for full control of the unit. It also allows greater ease for workers rather than having ladders walking up and down the facility.
The credit of such revolutionizing solutions passes down to TASK Forklifts' ability to recognize its customers' needs and continuously roll out solutions with durable, robust stackers to suit 'tough American conditions.' The company has been working closely with the American battery manufacturers to offer Thin Plate Pure Lead battery products that have fast charging features and are maintenance-free. "We don't follow the standard analogy of if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it, we continuously redesign and enhance our solutions to meet the demands of our clients,” mentions Michael Thomas, Vice President of TASK US Operations.
As a leader in designing, TASK Forklifts' business strategy brings together an integrated design, manufacture, and distribution process using innovative solutions that improve customers' productivity and operating efficiency. Being at the crossroads of providing quality, value for money and strong after-sales support, the company has steadily carved its niche in the industry by meeting customers' demands and putting them into a cost-effective solution.
TASK Forklifts is currently focused on making the best use of technology to enhance the usability and loading/lifting capacity of its products. The company is banking on product research and development to improve usability and increase the loading/lifting capability of its solutions. TASK Forklifts also plans to work with a host of international integration partners and software companies to become a low-cost provider for SMBs throughout the US and globally. “In the near future, we will bring new products into the market that can change the way operators interact with their inventory and their product storage needs,” concludes Mr Thomas.
