If I have a choice between (another lift truck) and a Jungheinrich® – I’ll choose the Jungheinrich.Juan Ruiz Jr., Forklift Operator
There’s no comparison.
Daikin is the world’s No. 1 air conditioning company offering residential, commercial and applied industrial solutions to over 140 countries around the world. Their manufacturing and distribution plant near Houston, TX is the largest HVAC facility in the United States, spanning an impressive 4.2 million square feet. Nearly every Daikin or Goodman HVAC product shipped in the U.S. passes through this facility.
As part of the decision-making process, Daikin evaluated and demonstrated several different competitors’ products in addition to the Jungheinrich EFG 220 series – a 2,500 – 4,000 lb., 3-wheel electric counterbalanced forklift. Overwhelmingly, Daikin’s management team and forklift operators preferred the Jungheinrich lift trucks due to the truck’s ability to run 16 hours on one battery charge, its leading comfort, ergonomics and ability to move smoothly across their large facility.
Today, Daikin now operates more than 300 Jungheinrich lift trucks in its Houston facility, including a mix of man-up turret trucks, three-wheel electric counterbalance lift trucks, tow tractors, four-wheel electric pneumatic forklifts, walkie pallet trucks, powered pallet trucks, high-level order pickers, stand-up end controls, and pantograph reach trucks.
Lift truck operator Santana López says, “If you have to be all-day sitting down…that’s your job. Well, you want the best forklift.”
“It’s ergonomically structured for a forklift driver to be on it for long periods of time.” Said Juan Ruiz Jr, another Daikin forklift operator, speaking about the Jungheinrich EFG 2 forklift series.
When Daikin operators start their shift each day, they have the choice between a Jungheinrich EFG electric forklift and a propane-powered IC pneumatic forklift. Both management and operators said the Jungheinrich lift trucks are always the first to be chosen. “When I walk in at the beginning of the day – if I have a choice between a propane (forklift) and a Jungheinrich – I’ll choose the Jungheinrich. There’s no comparison,” says Ruiz.
