Cat leaps into action for ABP

Christmas came early for the engineering department at Associated British Ports Grimsby when BJB Lift Trucks delivered a fully reconditioned Caterpillar forklift.

The DP45N counterbalance model had undergone the full BJB treatment prior to delivery with installation of a new cab and a full respray. Boasting a 4500kg lift capacity and a Triplex full free lift mast, the forklift will become an integral part of port operations on the East Side Royal Dock in Grimsby.

ABP engineering supervisor, Lee Boswell, commented: “I am delighted with the quality and condition of the CAT forklift BJB have supplied to us. It is a classic example of how they go the extra mile for customers.”

BJB sales director, Peter Harvey, added: “When we supply any piece of refurbished equipment to a customer, we aim to present it in as good a condition as we possibly can. ABP is a very prestigious brand so we decided to have the forklift completely resprayed to reflect their corporate branding. This particular piece of equipment has also been supplied with 6 months warranty to give the customer that extra piece of mind.”
