Yale donates the

Yale donates the 400,000th produced truck to international charity To celebrate production of the 400,000th truck at its plant in Northern Ireland, Yale Europe Materials Handling has made the largest single charitable donation in its history. As the specially manufactured truck rolled off the production line, employees at the Craigavon factory marked the milestone by handing it over to international charity Oxfam, for use at its distribution center in Bicester. The ceremonial presentation of the Yale Veracitor VX, which has been signed by all of the staff at the Craigavon factory, was made to Oxfam GB’s Finance Director Alison Hopkinson by Craigavon Plant Manager Jim Downey during an exclusive event on January 19th before a specially invited audience of employees, suppliers, and dignitaries, including the Lord Mayor of Craigavon. Prior to the grand reveal, guests enjoyed factory tours of the plant, a series of presentations from senior members of the Yale team and a video showcasing the journey of the charity truck as it progressed along the production line (Image 01 and 02). Saving lives around the world Oxfam responds to emergencies around the world, for example saving lives by delivering the ability to source and store clean water for drinking and sanitation. Its Bicester depot currently operates with a 20-year-old counterbalance 2.5 ton, LPG, 4-wheel truck which is in desperate need of replacing. The Yale Veracitor VX was selected as the truck of choice, because it offers high levels of productivity, ergonomics and dependability. 01 There are more than 400 Signatures from proud Yale workers of Craigavon on the donated jubilee truck Iain Friar, Yale brand manager, said: “We are all incredibly proud that the 400,000th truck has been produced here in Craigavon, and we wanted to celebrate the contribution made by so many people in achieving that milestone. Yale is committed to our tagline ‘people, products and productivity’ and we firmly believe that it is our people who have put us where we are today. The 400,000th truck is the embodiment of the innovative approach and loyalty we receive from our Yale people. We wanted to choose a charity with the same ethos as Yale, an organization like ourselves that has people at its core. Not only is Oxfam internationally recognized for helping people in need, we felt that one of our forklift trucks would actually be of real benefit to its operation.” About Yale Yale Europe Materials Handling is a trading name of Nacco Materials Handling Limited, part of Nacco Materials Handling Group, Inc.

The new truck will replace the 20-year-old model our logistics team currently use. So not only does this truck represent a real cost saving to Oxfam, it will help us come to the aid of people in desperate need more efficiently. Oxfam relies on the generosity of its supporters and we are so grateful and touched by the Yale team’s kind and thoughtful gift.” Tailored for operation purpose Behind the scenes planning for the charitable donation began many months ago, with the technical team from Yale asking Oxfam exactly what sort of truck would suit its needs in terms of capacity, capability and fuel type. By liaising with the logistics manager from Oxfam, UK territory manager for Yale, Andrew Hine, specified that the 400,000th truck should be a GDP/GLP20-30VX model, selected for its maneuverability, reach and ease of use. Oxfam’s Bicester warehouse handles a variety of load sizes and weights, which have been manually weighed on scales prior to dispatch via air freight around the world. Yale’s partners, Ravas have generously donated i-Forks for the 400k truck to save Oxfam precious time by automatically weighing the load when it is lifted. As Oxfam’s truck needs to be always ready to respond to emergencies, Yale’s UK dealer, Briggs Equipment, has offered to maintain and service the truck. This is another example of Yale working with its partners to tailor the solution to the client. The Veracitor VX offers innovative technology to reduce brake and tire wear, longer service intervals, and high engineering quality. Fuel efficiency is built in; the Yanmar 2.6L diesel engine consumes as little as 3.0 liters per hour, while the LPG engine range delivers new levels of performance.
