Contemporary Marketing Group located in Norcross, GA relies on around half a dozen Linde Series 346 forklifts to carry out daily operations in their facility. The company, whose customers include big-box retailers like Home Depot and Lowe’s, produces flooring and countertop samples and displays for the home center industry.
When asked what went into the decision-making process to purchase Linde forklifts, company president Dwayne Slifko said that the equipment sold itself when they were given the ability to try the machines out in their facility.
The customer service on the front-end from both their KION North America regional sales manager, Rick Cates, and their authorized dealer, Lift Atlanta, coupled with the after sales support, gave Contemporary Marketing confidence in their purchase.
Based on their usage and application, Contemporary Marketing went with the E20 model from the Linde Series 346–an electric counterbalanced forklift which offers a 4,000 lb. load capacity. Assembled in Summerville, SC, this series features the Linde Combi-axle which provides excellent stability and exceptional maneuverability in confined areas.
To maximize productivity and uptime, the Linde Series 346 includes features like automatic deceleration, dual independent control systems, a maintenance-free brake system and continuous on-board diagnostics. Paired with a completely sealed AC-drive system, these features yield extended component life and extended maintenance intervals.
As with all Linde forklift operators, the employees at Contemporary Marketing also benefit from numerous ergonomic features including a full suspension seat, ample foot room, and adjustable steering column and armrest.
