Doosan gets St Gobain forklift deal

Published:  15 September, 2011

NORTHAMPTON: Doosan is to supply 2,000 counterbalance trucks to Saint Gobain UK sites including Jewson, JP Corry and Gibbs and Dandy builders' merchant networks.

The deal follows Saint-Gobain's £100m supply level agreement with Rushlift in May. Saint-Gobain's fleet director Ian Berrill said: "We were keen to choose a major global player that can provide safe, modern and reliable equipment. Doosan have worked hard to prove that they can supply reliable, productive, high quality equipment for the next ten years and we are extremely pleased to have secured our agreement with them."

Rushlift chairman, Peter Cosgrove said: "A deal of this size is not just about equipment. It's about service, top quality account management and building up trust over a long period. And having dealt with Doosan for many years as their national partner, we felt they were the natural choice for Saint-Gobain."
