WASHINGTON, DC—The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) announced today that Combilift USA is the newest member of the association’s Manufacturers and Services Council (MSC). The council is composed of the leading building material manufacturers and service providers serving the LBM industry.
NLBMDA’s MSC members are established industry leaders who supply products and services to lumber and building material dealers and regional chains across the nation. The dedicated members of the council share a commitment to promoting and enhancing the success of independent dealers and regional chains.
Combilift is a specialist forklift and straddle carrier manufacturer producing a wide range of customized handling solutions, all of which are designed for the safe, space saving and very productive handling of long and awkward products. Combilift offers lift capacities ranging from 3,200 lbs to 180,000 lbs with a variety of customized attachments available. The Combilift’s multidirectional capabilities and its ability to handle both long and short products offers a host of possible applications for the lumber and building materials industry.
Located in Monaghan, Ireland, Combilift was established in 1998 by Martin McVicar and Robert Moffett, both highly qualified engineers with decades of experience between them. Their expertise, knowledge of the market and practical experience led to the development of the Combilift—the ultimate long-load material handling solution.
Combilift is the world’s first IC engine-powered all-wheel-drive multidirectional forklift. It is actually a combination of forklift and side-loader, and is highly maneuverable, very safe, very cost effective and supremely efficient.
“We are delighted to further develop our relationship with the lumber and building materials industry by joining with NLBMDA,” explained Gearoid Hogan, Combilift USA Vice President of Marketing. “As a member of the Manufacturers and Services Council, we look forward to learning more about this industry and supporting its growth.”
