MasterMover is a world-leading provider of electric tug and tow tug solutions, with a wide range of products offering movement up to 30,000kg with a single machine, and pedestrian-operated, remote control and fully autonomous (AGV) solutions available. The company offers a dedicated stainless steel range of solutions, designed for use in cleanroom environments across industries such as biopharma, food manufacturing, chemicals and energy, among others.
“Working with Strikebox is a natural fit. They make a range of best-in-class products for the biopharma industry, and are focused on innovation, quality and customer experience – which matches our own culture perfectly,” said Andy Owen, Partner & Director at MasterMover.
“Cleanroom environments and high regulated and controlled, but often tight to work in, with people moving high-value equipment and materials. It is therefore essential that they have the right tools available to move these items in a controlled, safe way. Our range of stainless steel products is ideal for these environments, as they are easy to operate, they offer superb control and manoeuvrability, and are compliant with cleanroom standards,” added Owen.
MasterMover electric tugs ensure employees are protected, by eliminating manual handling. This can cause injury through the stresses and strains of physical exertion, but is also dangerous, as such an approach results in a lack of control, increasing the risk of damage to the equipment and materials being moved, but also to the wider operating environment.
Utilising electric tugs for load movement also drives operational efficiency, with a single operator able to easily and safely move heavy loads, maximising time spent on tasks of greater value-add.
Strikebox and MasterMover share the ability to design, build and deliver custom solutions to customers, and the two organisations will work closely together when a specific requirement is needed.
“Our design team is known for innovation, and we have tackled a wide range of specific and custom requirements over many years,” said O’Reilly. “In working with a partner for load moving, we wanted to find an organisation with this capability, as our customers often have the need for a custom solution. We’ve been really impressed with MasterMover’s track record and capabilities in this regard. Like Strikebox, MasterMover has repeatedly designed, built and delivered custom solutions that meet and exceed customer expectations.”
Through the partnership between the two organisations, Strikebox will exclusively recommend and make available MasterMover stainless steel electric tugs and tows, with a number of machines available for different applications.
