Narrow Aisle Ltd has a contract to supply a fleet of its latest electric-powered Flexi LiTHiON articulated forklift trucks to Samsung Mexicana for operation in the company’s Tijuana plant, where semiconductor devices and electronic components for the automotive and consumer sectors are produced.


In all, eight space-saving Flexi LiTHiON models – built at Narrow Aisle’s manufacturing facility in the UK – are being installed together with rapid lithium battery charging facilities to allow on-demand 24/7 operation.


The Flexi LiTHiON is powered by state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery technology that requires zero maintenance and delivers extended multi-shift availability without the need for battery changing. The trucks specified by Samsung also feature full digital control technology that delivers integrated performance and results in much lower battery usage and greater reliability, higher productivity and significantly reduced operating and maintenance costs.


John Maguire, managing director of Narrow Aisle Ltd, comments: ”Flexi articulated warehouse trucks pioneered by Narrow Aisle in 1990 have established themselves as the world’s best-selling articulated forklifts, over the last 30 years more than 10,000 Flexi units have been shipped are in operation worldwide.


“International sales now account for some 40 percent of our business and Flexis sold to customers in 60 countries worldwide who are supported by Narrow Aisle’s global network of authorised distributors and our company’s hubs in the UK, Taiwan and USA.”
