Customer-oriented process designed to improve your material handling
Every material handling operation is unique and demands customised solutions for optimal efficiency and profitability. Atlet’s R&D process is based on this fact. Working closely with our customers, we are able to develop trucks that satisfy each customer’s unique demands.
Atlet’s research and product development is a continuous process carried out in close collaboration with our customers, sales staff and suppliers. Everything, however, begins in the customer’s material handling operation. The continuously gathered input we get from our customers form the basis of our pilot studies, which specify the demands of the new products. In addition, the input also sparks off an intense questioning session. How do we produce this forklift truck in the smartest way? What modules should we use? And what detailed specifications will meet requirements? Then, before we define the final concept, we build full-scale prototypes. After that follow numerous prototype tests at our customer’s facilities before we finally initiate serial production.

Better ergonomics gives better economics
You get more from a healthy operator. He or she performs better and reduces your total costs of operation. That’s the simple truth about forklift truck ergonomics and the reason why we design each Atlet forklift with the operator in mind. And considering the fact that the forklift represents only 10% of the total cost while the operator represents 90%, it makes perfect sense to invest in good ergonomics.
