CNW Electrical Wholesale and Energy Solutions purchased its first Linde used forklift just over three years ago and has now equipped more than half of its 55-branch national network with similar trucks. CNW is part of the BGW Group of electrical and plumbing wholesale businesses which cover the entire Australian market. Business is brisk for the company’s branches and forklifts are essential for day to day operations, but their level of usage doesn’t justify investment in new equipment, so Linde’s premium quality second hand forklifts provide a budget‑friendly alternative. Through the Linde Certified Pre-owned Program CNW receives all the benefits of new forklifts, including class leading productivity, incredible cost efficiency and low emission IC engines. “We’ve been dealing with Linde for nearly three years for our CNW used forklift requirements,” Group Asset Manager, Damian Purcell said.

Linde’s guys aren’t just order takers. They go out and inspect our buildings and they have a good understanding of what our requirements are.

“Our branches are essentially a warehousing operation and some are obviously busier than others, so individual forklifts might not get used for a day, but when they are needed they have to be reliable. Before we began dealing with Linde we had purchased a wide range of used forklifts, but the quality just wasn’t there. Now when we require a used forklift Linde provide us with one which has just come out of its lease, which has been fully maintained by Linde and has low hours. It is important that we have someone in the forklift industry who really understands our needs, not just to buy used forklifts, but also to have them supported them with after sales service. When Linde tells you that its used forklifts have been refurbished you can totally rely on that. It’s one of the reasons we continue our relationship with Linde, because we can rely on their equipment and what they tell us. It is important for me that every forklift which goes out to one of our branches is in its best possible presentation and condition and that’s what has happened since we began dealing with Linde. We have a very good relationship.”
