Linde Material Handling, Europe’s largest forklift manufacturer has recently expanded their presence in Ireland with their newly opened Munster depot.
Leading the celebrations on the day was Leeds United, Manchester United, and Ireland soccer legend, John Giles, who took time out of his busy schedule to cut the ribbon and share some of his insights on the beautiful game. Linde plan to offer their full range of products and services from their new Cork base, which includes: forklift sales and rentals, servicing, automated solutions, safety solutions, racking and driver training.
Ciarán Miller, Managing Director of Linde Material Handling Ireland, commented that “Linde are honoured to open our newest depot in Cork, one of the key industrial hubs in Ireland. We are delighted to be able to support our large and varied customer base in the Munster region with this impressive facility that will not only increase our service availability but will also allow us to demonstrate the full range of products and services we
have to offer.”
Leading from the front
Linde have seen significant growth over the last number of years throughout Ireland, but especially in Munster. They have forged out a clear leading position as a key supplier in areas such as pharmaceuticals, food and drink, and logistics by providing innovative solutions in areas such as forklift safety solutions, forklift and material handling training, automated forklifts and warehouses, and an impressive range of German manufactured forklift truck. By taking this market leading approach, they have been able to develop an ambitious expansion plan that will see them continue to grow.
When discussing their expansion plan, Ciarán stated that: “As part of our network expansion plan, we recognised the value and importance of having a base in Munster that services both our customers and staff ’s needs. The new depot based in Matthew Hill Business Park, Forge Hill, Cork, will ensure that customers throughout Munster receive the highest level of service availability and gain the benefit of complementary service offerings such as training in a local, purpose-built facility. We look forward to serving our customers from here for many years to come.”
