Brierley Hill, West Midlands, UK: multi-temperature  warehousing and logistics business, Norish Foods has cut energy costs by 40% using high-frequency chargers for its electric forklift fleet.

Norish managing director, Norman Hatcliffe said: “The really great benefit of Hoppecke trak air is the 40% energy saving we achieved. It meant we were able to obtain payback on our investment in under 12 months as well as real long-term high power performance from our fleet of Flexi trucks.”
