Jungheinrich proves a cunning choice for Fox’s Pallets

Published:  14 April, 2015

Fox’s Pallets recently acquired three Jungheinrich DFG 316 forklift trucks. This is the latest chapter in Jungheinrich’s successful long-term relationship with the Kettering-based nationwide pallet supplier.

Part of Jungheinrich’s extensive range of ic-engined counterbalance forklift trucks, this diesel engined DFG 316 has a 1.6 tonne capacity and a lift height from its standard mast of 2900 to 7500 mm.

The trucks are on a five-year contract hire deal and replace Fox’s existing Jungheinrich units, which had come to the end of their contract. This is Fox’s third five-year contract renewal with Jungheinrich.

Established for over 50 years, Fox’s Pallets is a family run business. In recent years the company has broadened its business from supplying basic wooden pallets to now supplying a huge range to meet all delivery needs. The company has also expanded into the thriving waste management sector, providing roll-on, roll-off skips on-site for recycling plastic, cardboard, paper, metal, general waste and wood waste.
