CEMEX representatives visited Bobcat’s plant in Pontcha^teau (Loire-Atlantique, France) this summer to place further orders for eight new Bobcat telehandlers.
The visit followed the delivery of eight machines to various production sites belonging to the CEMEX Group at the beginning of the year. The CEMEX orders once again demonstrate Bobcat’s ability to meet the needs of major
clients, including this world-famous producer of ready-mixed concrete and aggregates.
CEMEX operations make full use of the versatility of Bobcat telehandlers, which have been supplied with a range of attachments such as pallet forks, buckets, jibs and manplatforms. CEMEX uses the TL range of telehandlers from Bobcat with lifting heights of 6 and 7m for a range of tasks including handling large bagged loads and the Bobcat T series of telehandlers with lifting heights of 14 and 18m as part of maintenance operations using manplatforms.
Based on good experience with the new Bobcat telehandlers at the start of the year, CEMEX followed this with an order for two 14m telehandlers and a third order in July for a further six telehandlers to complete its fleet.
The CEMEX France teams chose Bobcat for several reasons:
- the specifications and options offered by Bobcat were particularly suited to the needs of CEMEX operations teams;
- the total cost of the equipment and the finance solutions were highly favourable; and
- the French made equipment is fully in line with CEMEX’s policy of corporate responsibility, particularly in terms of responsible purchasing.
