DoorCo is driving change towards a greener future 

DoorCo is advancing efficiency, health and safety in its manufacturing facility through its new partnership with Jungheinrich, a renowned industrial truck manufacturer. This collaboration represents DoorCo’s commitment to operational performance through the adoption of electric forklifts. 

Mark, Head of Operations at DoorCo, said: “The decision to upgrade to electric forklifts in our manufacturing facility brings numerous benefits. Not only does the switch reduce our carbon footprint but it also highlights our dedication to the wellbeing of our workforce through advanced safety features. This strategic move aligns with DoorCo’s vision of creating a more sustainable future while prioritising the safety and efficiency of our operations.

“These new forklifts run entirely on electric energy and offer the same excellent quality and performance as traditional forklifts. These forklifts have a reach capacity of up to 7.5 meters and can lift up to 5,000kg over long distances.

“Switching to electric isn’t just about being green; it’s about smart savings too. By making this change, we are reducing our environmental impact, lowering our carbon footprint by a staggering 94%, and saving around £99,855.16 in energy costs and 851,863kg of carbon in emissions.

“Our FLT drivers will undergo training to ensure they can operate these new vehicles with the same competency as they did before. This new training taps into the exciting new technologies like brand-new telematics software. This software plays a crucial role in boosting safety by providing real-time updates to drivers, proactively preventing accidents.

“We saw an opportunity to boost our operations with electric forklifts, and we’re excited about the positive changes this will bring. This update to our fleet allowed us to modernise and improve efficiency, as well a representing our commitment to practical innovation and safety, aligning with our end goal of net zero.”
