D S Smith Packaging, part of D S Smith Plc, is an international supplier of recycled packaging for consumer goods with a turnover of £2 billion and a workforce of over 22,000 people. Efficient material handling operations are on the top of their agenda.
With the purchase of a new production line at their facility in Belper, Derbyshire, D S Smith created the need for further manual handling equipment. After consultations with D S Smith, Advanced Handling manufactured and supplied two bespoke Static Scissor Lifts both fitted with an ‘auto-levelling adjustment’ feature and protective bellow skirt.
With an established relationship with Advanced Handling, D S Smith own and operate a number of high Standard Scissor Lifts at their warehouse centres across the UK.
John Clements, Health & Safety Manager at D S Smith, commented “Having previously purchased Advanced Handling products, I had no hesitation in returning to them to resolve our latest manual handling issue. From the site visit through to the order and delivery, everything was handled professionally and with excellent levels of service and support.”
