Vending machine business grows with forklifts
Victorian business Vendco supplies and services a range of drink, snack, food and coffee vending machines and benchtop office coffee machines. The company recently upgraded from a 100 m2 warehouse to a 600 m2 combined showroom, warehouse and service centre in Coburg North, and its new Toyota 8FG 1.8-tonne forklift has made all the difference.
“We already had a Toyota BT walkie stacker forklift, which was fine for our small premises at the time, but when we moved to our current location we knew we’d need to add another forklift to take full advantage of the additional space,” said Vendco’s proprietor, Steve Moysiadis.
“The BT stacker works well on the flat surface in the warehouse. Space was so limited before it never needed to be operated at full speed, but now it is most of the time.
“It’s always been quick and easy to use when lifting the vending machines, and it’s simple to control and manoeuvre around the warehouse, so we knew we’d keep it and look for an additional forklift.”
The 1.8-tonne Toyota 8FG forklift is now used to load and unload trucks, while the BT stacker handles the indoor duties in the warehouse and showroom.
Toyota Material Handling Australia’s Victorian area sales manager, Adem Shemshedin, said the Toyota 1.8-tonne payload 8FG forklift was perfectly suited to Vendco’s needs.
