Globe Metal Receives New Electric Forklifts
Electric Forklifts allow the company to practice what it preaches to reduce its carbon footprint.

Montreal, Quebec: Globe Metal is pleased to announce the arrival of a fleet of new electric forklifts. Globe CEO Jeff Solomon, together with the rest of the team, made a decision to reduce Globe Metal’s carbon footprint. Part of this process was to replace the propane fuelled forklifts with electric ones.

“We are in the business of reducing other people’s carbon footprints by recycling their waste powders, sludges, filter and solid metals. It would seem natural to look into reducing our own carbon footprint by eliminating exhaust gases and waste oils generated by internal combustion engines,” says Mr. Solomon.

The new Electric Counterbalance Truck manufactured by Linde offers excellent safety, performance, and operator comfort. It also brings a new level of reliability to our team. The lift offers different battery changing solutions, maintenance-free AC motors and wet disc brakes. These features lower downtime to a minimum and ensure a minimal service cost level as well.

Globe Metal would like to extend a special thank you to the team at Manutation Quebec for their help assessing the company’s needs. The electric forklifts will be put to immediate use by the team in Globe Metal’s warehouse and become a vital component in helping maximize space and moving inventory.
