Featuring numerous solutions tailored to the construction industry, Jungheinrich is appearing at the “30th International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment” in Munich — bauma 2013.
The main focus of the Jungheinrich appearance (open-air site F9/stand 908 A) consists of counterbalanced trucks manufactured at the company’s Bavarian-based plant in Moosburg. A special highlight will consist of a new electric counterbalanced truck from model series 5. The new EFG 535-550 will be unveiled to the public at the “International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment”, opening on 15 April 2013 in Munich. The aspect of cost efficiency plays a special role when it comes to this completely newly developed model series. “The new truck provides outstanding energy efficiency while delivering top performance,” explains Stefan Pfetsch, Head of Product and Portfolio Management for Counterbalanced Trucks at Jungheinrich. “We call it Pure Energy.”
In addition to the new truck series, Jungheinrich will be showing virtually its entire product range for counterbalanced forklifts at bauma 2013. Apart from the hydrodynamic drive forklifts (torque converters), the Jungheinrich presentation will feature the company’s “big IC trucks”, with a lifting capacity of up to nine tonnes, rolling off the line since the end of 2012, also at Moosburg.
Jungheinrich ranks among the world's leading companies in the material handling equipment, warehousing and material flow engineering sectors. The company is an intralogistics service and solution provider with manufacturing operations, which offers its customers a comprehensive range of forklift trucks, shelving systems, services and advice. Jungheinrich shares are traded on all German stock exchanges.
