Jungheinrich and Riwal agree international partnership
Jungheinrich, the international intralogistics provider, and Riwal, the international aerial work platform and telehandler rental specialist, will work together internationally to rent their equipment.
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, giving customers of both companies easier access to the right equipment.
The partnership has already taken effect in The Netherlands, Belgium, Slovenia and Germany, with other countries to follow in the course of 2019.
Pedro Torres, Riwal Chief Operating Officer, said: “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, added: “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.”
Riwal UK Country Manager Mick Ledden said: “This is excellent news for both Riwal and Jungheinrich customers here in the UK. Working together, we will be able to jointly deliver hire solutions that are more productive, safer and sustainable.”
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, while Jungheinrich provided forklift trucks.
In addition, Riwal and Jungheinrich equipment was used to build hospitality villages at stopover sites across the world.
