Consolis maker of precast concrete products opts for Terex Reach Stacker for Malaysian plant

Reach stackers from Terex Port Solutions (TPS) stand up beyond container terminals. Consolis Malaysia, a subsidiary of the Consolis Group, a leader in precast concrete solutions and headquartered in France, has used a Terex TFC 45 R reach stacker at its plant in Port Dickson, Malaysia since summer 2016. Consolis Malaysia uses the robust machine for handling and transporting concrete pipes and components produced on site for the construction of a water-cooling circuit.

High flexibility of use thanks to specially developed grab

The Terex reach stacker used by Consolis Malaysia is equipped with a grab developed especially for pipe components. Guillaume Beduneau, Operation Manager at Consolis in Malaysia, explains: “With the Terex reach stacker we can selectively grab and position the components. In this way we achieve greater flexibility of use than with other handling machines such as mobile cranes. So far the machine has also impressed us in everyday work with its robustness and cost-effective operation.”

Versatile in container handling and for industrial use

Paolo Dazi, Global Sales Director Lift Trucks TPS, is delighted to have gained Consolis as another industrial customer for the reach stacker technology of TPS: “The fact that Consolis has opted for the TFC 45 R proves the versatility of our reach stackers. Besides container spreaders, we can also equip them with the appropriate lifting gear for various industrial applications. In addition, Consolis benefits from the advantages typical of all our reach stackers, namely cost-effectiveness, serviceability and ergonomic design.”

Complete reach stacker model range

TPS offers customers an extensive range of reach stackers. The Terex TFC 45 R belongs to the portfolio of proven machines that has been extended since spring 2015 to include the Terex Liftace™ reach stackers from the new-generation lift trucks of TPS. TPS completed the Liftace portfolio mid-year, which now consists of five models with wheelbases of 6,200 mm to 7,000 mm. Paolo Dazi: “Taken together, there is now a model range available to customers, in which container terminals can find the right reach stacker just as easily as multimodal terminals or industrial companies.”
