New Equipment Digest Honors Superior Industrial Product Development
HOUSTON – New Equipment Digest, an industrial and warehousing publication, named the Jungheinrich® ECR 327/336 series of end-riders as a Gold-level 2013 "King Award Winner" based on the manufacturer's superior industrial product innovation of the 6,000 lb. and 8,000 lb. capacity electric end-rider pallet trucks, which feature industry-leading speeds – up to 9.3 mph.
The King Awards showcase the best new products introduced in 2012, as chosen by New Equipment Digest readers. Award winners are providers who have developed innovative products that help customers in the manufacturing industry work more efficiently and effectively.
"We're proud to have the Jungheinrich end-rider series recognized by New Equipment Digest as a King Award winner," said Kent Eudy, executive vice president, Sales and Marketing at Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA). "We are dedicated to providing premium quality products that offer high performance and productivity for the manufacturing industry, which makes this recognition a significant honor."
The Jungheinrich electric end-rider pallet trucks showcase innovative, productivity-enhancing features, including regenerative braking, which supports overall control during braking and smooth directional changes. The electrical components are also sealed against moisture and dirt to a rating of IP54, making it ideal for low-level order picking, long distance transporting and loading/unloading trailers.
