Rushlift wins JP Corry fleet deal
Published:  11 March, 2011

IRELAND: Rushlift has secured a national deal to supply JP Corry, Northern Ireland’s largest builders merchant with specialist equipment from forklift manufacturers Doosan and Combilift.

A highly respected name in Ireland, with almost 200 years experience providing timber and building supplies from around the world, JP Corry has already received over 40 new Doosan and Combilift trucks across 17 branches.

The 10-year supply contract was developed by Rushlift national account manager Matt Turner who travelled to each site, assessing the branch’s individual requirements and recommending new methods of working.

Mr Turner comments: “We’ve restructured the makeup of the fleet to more accurately reflect the business needs, and introduced new Combilift equipment which has really pushed the operation forward.

“Along with the introduction of the new equipment we have set up our unique online fleet management system, allowing JP Corry to view any truck, on any site and see exactly how the machines are being cared for, enabling them to keep track on expenditure and maintenance responsibilities.”
