Combilift’s 60,000th Truck Delivered

The Irish manufacturer Combilift recently marked a further milestone when it’s 60,000th unit came off the production lines at the company HQ in Monaghan and was shipped to the other side of the world. The customer taking delivery of this special forklift is Metroll, a leading Australian manufacturer and supplier of steel building products including roofing, cladding, rainwater, structural and fencing.

Metroll has branches across the country, and the new Combi-CB3000 will be a further addition to its fleet of 13 Combilifts that are operating throughout the Metroll Group, with another 10 already on order. These range from 6,000 pounds multidirectional units to a highly customized 22,000-pound model.

Combilift number 60,000 will be working at the site in Toowoomba and has been fitted with features such as 195-inch triplex mast with a 120-inch spreader to safely and easily manage the long loads that are typically handled by Metroll.

“Like most businesses we are very busy and we’re also growing at a significant rate, so space has become a premium resource,” said Vic Josephs, operations manager, Metroll. “With this unit we can utilize our space more efficiently whilst at the same time operating safely. Safety is of paramount importance. This forklift allows our machinery to get into tighter spaces and for us to space our racks more closely together to maximize factory floor space.”

“This is a great achievement for Combilift, particularly as almost every truck we manufacture is a one-off, designed for specific and individual requirements,” said Martin McVicar, CEO and co-founder, Combilift. “There are very few other companies, if any, that can offer this level of customization whilst manufacturing in such volume. The first half of this year has been by far the best in our 23-year history for the number of orders we have received – not just for Combi-CB models but across our complete product range.”
