Lödige SHERPA proves perfect solution for healthcare distribution centre

The customer is headquartered in Wijchen and has been working closely with the Lödige in Benelux team for many years, resulting in the installation of 6 goods lifts in distribution centres in Helmond, Eindhoven and Waalwijk. In addition, Lödige provides maintenance services in Amsterdam, Veghel and Tilburg.

For the new distribution centre the customer needed a goods lift to be installed within the cold storage area of the distribution centre. Therefore it was necessary to offer a lift, which would require no hydraulic oil. Lödige’s SHERPA® goods lift with chain lifter turned out to be a perfect solution. The lift is mechanically driven by a chain and achieves maximum performance without using oil or any other additional resources to work. Therefore a cold environment presents no difficulty for the SHERPA®.

The installed lift has 2 stops. With a lifting capacity of 1,500 kg and speed of 0.2 m/s, it will enable improving processes.

Arthur van Brink, Managing Director of Lödige in Benelux commented: “We are delighted, that our customers return to us with requests for the installation of new products or maintenance. It is an affirmation of the quality of our product and service and at the same time it provides the motivation to us as a team to continue to provide the best solutions to our customers’ requirements.
