EP EQUIPMENT WINS THE IF DESIGN AWARD 2019

Forktruck Solutions has joined the ‘Lithium Power Revolution’, and for good reason too. As a dealership, we believe that EP Equipment is the way forward. At Forktruck Solutions we soon realised the implications of exposing staff to Gas and Diesel Forktruck pollutants. Also recognising the alarming energy crisis and the shift is climate is a clear indicator of the urgency of switching to cleaner energy sources at every level. Lithium-ion battery technology, provides sustainable changes in transforming our way to store and consuming energy. However, it was important to us that this switch didn’t mean a compromise on quality. But, in fact, EP Lithium-ion Forktrucks aim to supersede Gas and Diesel counterparts – and that’s why we made the switch.

At Forktruck solutions, we was sold on the EP from the very start and we believed it was the only way forward in the material handlings sector. Our predictions where confirmed, when EP Equipment won the IF design award in 2019. The iF Product design award was introduced first in 1954 and has been a growing institution for good design ever since. Several market leading manufacturers like Jungheinrich, Toyota and many others have participated in this prestigious competition. In 2019 EP Equipment entered the competition with a ground-breaking new product, the WPL201 Li-Ion pallet truck. The WPL 201 does not only appear in a unique, appealing design, it also combines design with innovative features that solve several problems of tradi-tional electric pallet trucks.

This truck comes with increased gradeability and power, plug&play Li-Ion battery and a world unique plug&play controller. To ensure low TCO and simple service, the controller of the WPL201 can be exchanged single-handed to reduce service time for the customer. With its 48V/ 36Ah plug&play Li-Ion Battery, the truck can run through a full shift without charging and work around the clock with opportunity charging. In addition to these fantastic fea-tures, the WPL 201 Lithium Ion pallet truck is also the shortest in the world. At only 423mm, it is much shorter than any of its competitors and better for use in narrow aisles.

The IF design awards celebrated EP Equipment impressive achievements in their innovative product design. Other companies such as BMW, Porshe and Bosch also attended this prestigious event. At Forktruck Solutions, we congratulate EP on their success and we are thrilled that we will be part of the Lithium Clean Air Revolution.
