Thorworld yardramp plays a key role in JCB Teletruk demos

For the third consecutive year, JCB Industrial has chosen to use a Thorworld mobile yardramp as it is the perfect partner for its live Telescopic forklift demonstrations to VIP customers and dealers.

JCB Industrial used the Thorworld ramp in conjunction with a container vehicle at two events at its headquarters in Rocester, Staffordshire, to showcase the overall performance and versatility of their Teletruk counterbalanced forklifts.

The JCB Teletruk has established a reputation for offering a small working footprint whilst being able to carry a very high load capacity over most surfaces and gradients, thus making them perfect for use in busy and congested yards.

The demonstration events are designed to give VIP customers from the transport, logistics, waste recycling, builders' merchant, industrial and materials handling sectors, as well as JCB's fork truck dealers, a good understanding of just how effective and versatile the machines are.

Thorworld mobile container ramps are ruggedly built, making them ideal for the fast loading and unloading of vehicle trailers and containers by fork truck - particularly where there is no raised loading dock such as in the JCB demonstration arena at their Staffordshire HQ.

A JCB spokesman said; "We decided to use a Thorworld mobile yardramp again as it was important to show exactly how the Teletruk performs in a real-world working environment."

"The live demonstrations are an important part of our sales strategy as they give us the opportunity to meet directly with customers who are looking to invest in new machines and want to see the Teletruk in action."

"Our arena is a purpose-designed demonstration area, so the Thorworld mobile ramp and the container vehicle are essential for simulating a realistic working environment. Thorworld produces robust high quality ramps for the industry which makes them ideal for our needs."

"We are delighted that Thorworld has been chosen once again to supply the yardramp for the JCB Teletruk live customer and dealer demonstrations. Our ramps are specifically designed for use in areas where there are no loading docks. These events show exactly how forklift vehicles such as the Teletruk can quickly and easily load/unload goods to/from a trailer or container vehicle; with the additional benefit that the ramp can also be relocated on site as and where required," said John Meale, managing director of Thorworld Industries.
