Doosan, the leading manufacturer of robust high performance forklift trucks, will be bringing the toughest and strongest to IMHX 2019 with live displays from four GB Taekwondo champions – including double Olympic Gold medalist, Jade Jones MBE, and three-times World Championships Gold medal winner, Bianca Walkden.
Visitors to the Doosan stand (Hall 19, Stand 19G80) will be treated to three, thrilling live demonstrations a day, throughout the show, together with photo opportunities with the athletes. Also taking part in the live displays will be Lutalo Muhammad, two-time Olympic medalist and Mahama Cho, Olympian and huge prospect for a medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. Those feeling agile and courageous will even be given the chance to have a go themselves, with the very real possibility of becoming a champion for the day. There will be daily prizes for the highest scoring men and women.
Brian Grady, Sales and Marketing Director at Doosan Industrial Vehicle UK, says: “As sponsors of the recent World Taekwondo Championships 2019 in Manchester, Doosan are delighted to bring some of the top GB athletes from this exciting and dynamic sport to the IMHX for a series of live demonstrations that are sure to amaze, surprise and entertain. Taekwondo is a wonderful sport that shares three key traits with Doosan’s design ethos – those of strength, toughness and agility. It’s going to be quite a show – onlookers can’t help but be inspired.”
Alongside the live Taekwondo displays will be the very latest of Doosan’s counterbalance and warehouse truck models, from the new feature-rich B15R-7 three-wheel and B45X-7 four-wheel series of electric forklift trucks, right up to Doosan’s powerful, heavy-lifting diesel and gas models – including Doosan’s giant 25 tonne capacity counterbalance forklift, the DV250S-7, which will be hard to miss. However, there will be more than just counterbalance trucks to see.
In advance of the highly anticipated launch of its new range of warehouse trucks, Doosan will be offering a tantalizing glimpse of what’s to come by debuting three new models in the walkie and stacker powered pallet truck range – the BPL18/20S-7 with lateral drive, the BPM20S-7 with middle drive, and the BDL13S-7(H) double stacker. All three pedestrian operated trucks reflect Doosan’s renowned design characteristics of compact functional form, high maneuverability, durability and rugged, reliable performance.
Doosan’s huge 658 sq m stand – one of the largest at the show – will be set out in six industry zones, displaying Doosan’s best-in-class solutions for each sector, spanning Manufacturing, Construction, Agriculture, Transport, Warehousing and Aviation. Visitors will have the advantage of seeing the optimum handling solutions for enhancing performance in each industry.
Doosan, the leading manufacturer of robust high performance forklift trucks, will be exhibiting some of its latest products for the logistics sector at The Commercial Vehicle Show 2019 (hall 3A, stand 3D10), the UK’s largest and most comprehensive road transport event, to be held at the NEC, Birmingham, 30th April - 2nd May 2019.
Doosan will be showcasing two leading examples from its extensive range of robust, IC engine and electric powered counterbalance trucks – the 2.5 tonne capacity Doosan G25P-7 four-wheel LPG counterbalance model and the 2.0 tonne Doosan B20X-7 four-wheel electric counterbalance truck. Ideally suited to tough yard duties, both vehicles come with Doosan’s industry leading oil-cooled disc brake system as standard. Manufactured as completely sealed units the system is protected against outside elements, such as water, dust, dirt, shrink wrap and metal banding - ensuring top-rate braking performance, for enhanced safety and increased productivity in the yard.
In a sneak pre-launch preview, one of Doosan’s new 2.0 tonne walkie powered pallet trucks will be available to see on stand 3D10, offering an exciting glimpse into Doosan’s latest feature-rich warehouse truck range, soon to be released. Also to be seen for the first time will be a new Doosan electric hand pallet truck, available in 1.2 – 1.5 tonne capacities.
Brian Grady, Sales and Marketing Director for Doosan Industrial Vehicles UK, says: “The road transport sector is a primary focus for Doosan. We have a strong, robust range of heavy lifting trucks capable of meeting the diverse needs of the logistics market – from container stuffing to loading/unloading of vehicles. Our industry leading Doosan G2 diesel engine delivers the power to get the job done and our newly-launched electric heavy-lifting counterbalance trucks are just as able.”
He adds: “We’re delighted to have this opportunity to engage with logistics and road haulage businesses on ways of driving productivity and performance across their material handling operations – in the warehouse, on the loading-dock or out in the yard.”
Doosan has an extensive range of over 200 models of counterbalance, reach and warehouse trucks, with capacities spanning 1.3 to 25 tonne, over power sources of electric, gas and diesel. Everything a busy logistics business needs in terms of handling performance to keep goods moving efficiently and safely.
