On the 8th of May 2015 Langkloof Bricks took delivery of 3 x H45d and 2 x H25d, Linde Forklifts, cementing a relationship going back 20 years.

Nico Blake, Executive Director of Langkloof Bricks, said, “The exceptional service levels, quality of machines and the competence of the staff experienced over this period made it a no brainer as to which machines to buy again.”

“The Linde’s are perfect for working in confined areas  as well as in big sheds where sound is amplified by the high roof structures.”

Machines are allocated to different areas, 1x H45d and x 1x H25d to the production division, 1 x H45d to the drying division and  1x H45d and 1x H25d to the Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln firing division.

Energy efficiency is one of the highest priorities at Langkloof Bricks and as such it was important to choose forklifts that fit into that profile.

As the VSBK divisions operates on a 24/7 principle, exceptionally high levels of machine availability is non-negotiable, a principle that Dean Lawson, Branch Manager and his team at Linde Port Elizabeth understands completely.

“We believe the experience we have enjoyed with the Linde team from PE over the last 20 years, will stand our relationship in good stead for the future.”
