Forklifts boost efficiency at two sites

Roydon Group has seen improved efficiencies after choosing Cesab M300 forklifts for two of its waste management operations. Headquartered in Swinton, Manchester, Roydon Polythene and Roydon Polythene (Exports) have both experienced improved reliability since the 16 Cesab trucks were brought in to handle waste.

Four Cesab M315 diesel forklifts, one M318 diesel forklift and two M325 diesels are in use at Roydon Polythene, which recycles and reprocesses plastic film from the industrial, commercial and post-consumer industry sectors.  

One of Roydon Poythene’s M325s has been fitted with a Bolzoni bale clamp and another with the Bolzoni fork clamp, en­-abling them to transport plastic bales around site, load containers or curtain-sided vehicles and feed stock on to conveyor belts.

At Roydon Polythene (Exports) there are six M325 diesel trucks and three M330 diesel forklifts (pictured), all fitted with Bolzoni bale clamps or fork clamps.

Both materials handling oper­ations are intensive, with forklifts working 24 hours a day from Monday to Thursday and transporting 160-180 tonnes of plastic bales each day.

Reliability and strength were the two biggest criteria for site manager Graham Stanhope, who said: “After we approached dealership Global Materials Handling, we decided to trial a Cesab M325 forklift for a year and had no issues with it whatsoever.”
