The end of this financial year marks eight years that Lencrow has been the dealer for EP products in Australia.
EP is one of the boutique forklift and materials handling manufacturers in China.
They now have over 200 models and types of equipment available to their dealers.
Early this year EP opened their new purpose built manufacturing plant in Anji in Zhejiang Province. The building area totals 80,000sqm, which houses design, R&D, six manufacturing lines and product and quality control.
The factory is built in the area made famous by the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Lencrow has sold 300 EP units this year, which is up 25 per cent on the sales last year. Units sold include power pallet jacks, pedestrian stackers, ride on reach trucks, three and four wheel counterbalance forklifts, IC and diesel forklifts 1.5 to 12 tonne, and a range of manual handling equipment from hand pallet jacks to scissor tables.
“We have moved a long way forward with EP, the units they supply us now have been built with the input of our staff and customers, says Ross Grassick General Manager of Lencrow.
“The units are now very reliable and user friendly, he says. “The control systems on electric units are the same as most other well know brands with the engineers going outside of China to source the best components available.
“Brands such as Curtis, Danaher, Zapi and engines from Nissan, Isuzu and Cummins and transmissions and axles from ZF, Kessler and Okamura just to name a few. They put in the best and our customers are rewarded with quality at very good value.”
EP now has dealers throughout North and South America and is well represented through Europe, Asia and South Africa.
They have adopted a slogan of Let’s Grow Together, created by EP Managing Director Mr John He.
John feels that the best growth is achieved by synergy of users, repairers and manufactures working for a common goal of user-friendly machines built to the highest quality at the best value possible.
Both EP and Lencrow look forward to next financial year – building units for users.
