Jungheinrich launches flagship showroom and Business Hub

Published:  03 April, 2017

Jungheinrich UK has announced the launch of its new flagship ‘Forkcourt’ showroom and Business Hub concept to support local logistics-intensive businesses.

The new Forkcourt line of showrooms represents a new way of showcasing Jungheinrich products and services, and will provide a drop-in point for local customers to view the Jungheinrich range of remanufactured forklift trucks. Experts will also be on hand to assist with enquiries into materials handling equipment and to advise on ‘one stop shop’ intralogistics solutions.

The opening in Milton Keynes follows the success of the Dartford showroom launch in April 2016, which marked the first additional UK showroom in almost 20 years. The introduction of the Business Hub concept will enable Jungheinrich to use the facilities to also help promote industry growth and collaboration in the local area.

The Forkcourt will be accessible to local businesses to use as an extension of their own work space, free of charge – whether for training purposes, conference space, or consultation with Jungheinrich specialists.

Neil Warren, used equipment, rental and workshop director at Jungheinrich UK, said: “Jungheinrich has the one of the only refurbishing production lines in the world dedicated to remanufacturing forklift trucks to a standard that’s as good as new. Every truck that leaves our Dresden plant is of the highest possible quality and has the warranty to prove it, which matches those of our new products.

“The Milton Keynes Forkcourt is an opportunity to showcase the quality of these five-star refurbishments and their economic, technical and ecological benefits to our customers in Milton Keynes and the surrounding area. Combined with our new Business Hub concept, we look forward to working more collaboratively to support local industry and the materials handling and intralogistics requirements of the companies it is comprised of.”
