Linde Material Handling (UK) is continuing to expand its forklift fleet.

Linde’s short-term hire fleet goes from strength to strength

Published:  17 July, 2013

Linde Material Handling (UK) has continued its investment into strengthening its Forklift Truck Hire fleet in the UK.

With the recent addition of over 200 forklifts, two of which are heavy trucks with capacities of 45 tonnes, Linde's fleet now totals circa 10,000 machines across its UK network.

Mark Sullivan, head of used trucks and short-term rental at Linde, said: “The addition of these new trucks to our already 10,000-strong fleet ensures that we can provide our customers with a complete range of equipment from a simple hand pallet truck, right through to a container-handling truck.

“Having the largest capability of trucks in the industry means we can react to situations where equipment is required at short notice and deliver a high-specification, bespoke solution to meet our customers’ needs, whether they are looking for extra capacity for a week or several months.”

Linde Material Handling has been developing its forklift truck hire service over the last 20 years. For more information, contact 0845 909 3333 or visit
