The launch of these new forklift products will complement Linde’s existing heavy truck range of container handling equipment designed for ports and terminal operations.
In recent weeks there have been rumours in the market regarding the partnership between Linde MH and its dealer Mi-Jack in Chicago, USA. Mi-Jack has terminated the contract with Linde Material Handling which was due to run until April 2011. “In the business world such instances occur on a daily basis and both parties have reached a mutually amicable agreement,” said Detlef Sieverdingbeck, Linde’s new Head of Corporate Communications. “Other representations surrounding this situation are totally unfounded.”
With regard to a Mi-Jack future partnership it is understood that negotiations are currently being finalised with Terex to handle the distribution of Terex products in the North American market. It is understood that Mi-Jack will represent all Terex products throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico and Panama, although doubt exists regarding Noell’s straddle carriers as the company is fiercely protective of its separate identity within the group.
