Jungheinrich and Riwal Agree to Cooperate Internationally
The two companies decided to cooperate in the international rental business to create a combined, one-stop shop for optimal customer benefit with a wide range of forklift trucks and powered access equipment.
International Rental Agreement
Recently, Riwal signed an international rental agreement with the German-based intralogistics provider Jungheinrich, a company that supplies forklifts. Jungheinrich will use Riwal aerial work platforms for logistics centers, while Riwal will be able to offer Jungheinrich forklifts to customers in other segments.
The aim is to create a global one-stop shop for forklift trucks, aerial work platforms and telehandlers, providing customers of both companies easier access to the right equipment. The program has already taken effect in The Netherlands, Belgium, Slovenia and Germany, with other countries to follow in the course of 2019.
Most recently, Riwal and Jungheinrich have worked together on the Volvo Ocean Race 2018. As the official equipment supplier, Riwal equipped the mobile shipyards with scissor lifts and Jungheinrich forklift trucks. In addition, Riwal and Jungheinrich equipment were used to build hospitality villages in various stopovers across the world.
A Word from Riwal and Jungheinrich
Pedro Torres, Riwal Chief Operating Officer, comments: “Riwal is pleased to be able to provide a broader range of equipment to our customers as a result of this agreement. We are delighted to cooperate with a leading company such as Jungheinrich that has a strong international reach in the intralogistics industry.”
Kerk Wichmann, Director of Rental at Jungheinrich AG, adds: “Customer focus is key to Jungheinrich. By working with Riwal, we can serve the market with an expanded and optimally coordinated product portfolio. This partnership makes the rental of forklift trucks and access equipment much easier and more efficient for our customers. We look forward to working with Riwal to leverage business opportunities as both companies share the same corporate values.”
