Battery recycling company Envirowales has invested in a new fleet of diesel forklifts to replace its Yale machines.

Briggs Equipment UK has supplied the £350,000 worth of equipment on a 48-month rental contract with full maintenance support for its skilled engineering team.

Based in Ebbw Vale, South Wales, Envirowales recycles lead acid batteries to produce lead alloys, sodium sulphate and polypropylene.

During the past five years Envirowales says it has saved around £300,000 thanks to Briggs Equipment helping the company reduce the damage associated with harsh conditions plus operator misuse and unplanned maintenance.

Craig Williams, Logistics Manager at Envirowales, said: "Materials handling plays a vital role in our recycling operation and we’ve been extremely impressed with the performance of our Yale fleet, in particular how well it stands up to working in an acidic environment with airborne metallic dust."
