Tampa Company's Switch to Electric Forklifts Results in Increased Productivity; Lower Operating Costs

July 15, 2013 at 11:16 AMRing Power

With an aging lift truck fleet and increasing repair expenses, Tampa-based Corasential called on Ring Power’s Lift Truck team to perform a complete fleet evaluation.

Corasential recently turned to Ring Power Lift Trucks to lower forklift fleet operational costs.

Working closely with Coresential, the Ring Power Lift Trucks team carefully reviewed Corasential’s warehouse operations, fleet maintenance reports, and overall equipment health. By combining the equipment operations and productivity expertise of area Salesman, Joe Zevchak and the product support talents of Product Support Representative Jason Marmino, Ring Power Lift Trucks assembled a proposed fleet replacement to lower the cost of forklift ownership and improve fleet productivity.  

Because Ring Power Lift Trucks represents several leading forklift manufactures with varying operational and costs characteristics, we are able to offer a mix of equipment that best suits our individual customer’s needs.   In the case of Coresential, the Ring Power Lift Trucks team developed an initial fleet replacement plan, consisting of two Caterpillar E6000 four-wheel electric trucks and a Clark OSX15 electric order picker. 

Corasential had previously been running LP gas trucks and was leery of switching over to electric. Their previous experience with electric forklifts led to the impression of under-powered forklifts that saved time on operational expense at the cost of productivity.

If it were not for the nearly 20 year relationship with Ring Power's lift truck division, Coresential would likely have returned to their trusted LP units. Their trust in the Ring Power Lift Truck’s team and a demonstration of the capability of the Caterpillar and Clark products at the Ring Power's Riverview/Tampa facility convinced Corasential that they could go electric without sacrificing productivity.

Ring Power Lift Trucks helped Corasential increase productivity and lower operating costs with new electric forklifts.Coresential has now taken delivery of their initial truck replacements and are pleased with the productivity increases and how quiet the electric trucks are in the plant. Coresential is planning on additional replacements of LP trucks with Electric. The lower operational expense, improved productivity and safety of quiet electric has proven to be a big win for Coresential.
