Manufacturing & Assembly

Electric tugs are helping industrial manufacturers across the globe cut downtime, improve safety and increase both operational efficiency and flexibility.

Sectors we work in 

Our material handling solutions are used by clients in a diverse range of sectors to reduce downtime and improve workplace safety. 

Brick & Ceramic

Safe control of delicate loads

Moving heavy kiln carts is made simple and safe with electric tugs. A single operator can safely move heavy loads such as oven kilns, moulds and completed product without the risk of injury or fatigue.

Electric tugs help brick and ceramic manufacturers eliminate manual handling and reduce the risk of injury by delivering the safe, controlled movement of products, equipment and other loads.

Boat & Yacht Manufacturing

Precise and controlled movement of high-value loads

Maximising space in crowded boat manufacturing facilities can be a challenge. Relying on forklift trucks and overhead cranes to move boats and yachts through the production process can compromise efficiency and safety – especially where poor visibility means production slows to a standstill to achieve safe movement.

Electric tugs enable a single operator to move the heaviest loads through tight spaces with complete control, with remote control options to maximise operator visibility
