Bandvulc Purchases Two New Electric Forklifts


Bandvulc nowadays produces in the region of 200,000 commercial retreads each year has recently purchased two new Cesab B315 electric forklifts from JD Plant Services, the independent Cesab dealership for the South West.

JD Plant Services Sells Forklifts to Bandvulc

The three-wheel, electric counterbalanced forklift trucks have been fitted with Bolzoni bale clamps, so they can transport up to eight tyres around site at one time. Their compact design delivers high levels of maneuverability, thus allowing them to work in even the smallest of spaces.

The decision to take the new trucks follows Bandvulc’s positive experiences with their two other Cesab forklift trucks. These trucks were both Cesab M325Ds, which proved to be significantly more reliable than the previous brand in use. 

Tony Mailling, Group Operations Director, Bandvulc, said: “Bandvulc Tyres has had an excellent long-term relationship with JD Plant. Their service has always been exceptional, with the team quick to respond to issues and maintain our forklifts to a high standard to ensure minimal downtime in a challenging environment.

“The team understand our business and strive to meet our requirements. JD Plant is an essential part of our supply chain. We have been very pleased with the Cesab product. It’s competitive on price and proven to be reliable and fit for purpose.”
