Combilift is a winner at this year’s IFOY Awards 2020 – one of the most prestigious international awards in the materials handling industry which honours the best products and solutions of the year. The company won the Warehouse Truck Lowlifter Category with its innovative Combi-CS pedestrian counterbalance stacker.
The Combi-CS is the only pedestrian counterbalance stacker that operates in a conventional reach truck aisle for space saving and productive storage and handling. It features Combilift’s unique, internationally patented multi-position tiller arm which can be turned to the left or right of the unit to position the rear drive wheel, allowing the operator to remain in the safest position- at the side of the machine rather than at the rear. This ensures optimum visibility of the load and surroundings and guarantees maximum safety in areas where other personnel or members of the public are present.
Due to the current circumstances, the hundreds of people that normally attend the IFOY ceremony could not get together, so the organisers rolled out the virtual red carpet for the winners on the Internet in July 2020.
Some of the jury’s comments on the Combi-CS were as follows: “This is a really compact smart pedestrian truck which offers significant added value in terms of narrow aisle operation and safety in confined environments. It is a customer-focussed solution with a very high level of market relevance.”
Combilift CEO and Co-founder Martin McVicar said: “On behalf of the whole Combilift team I am delighted to receive the IFOY 2020 Award and proud that this innovative product has been recognised as valuable solution for the intralogistics sector. We extend our thanks to the IFOY jury for selecting us for this important award.”
