Sellick Equipment of Canada is entering into an important new partnership in Australia, distributing equipment through Flexilift Australia Pty Ltd. Although Sellick Equipment is no stranger to Australasia, with equipment operating in Australia and Papua New Guinea, both Sellick and Flexilift are expecting rapid growth for its range of equipment. Matt McCormick, Export Manager for Sellick, had this to say about the new partnership: “We’ve been impressed with the maturity and potential of the Australian market for many years, and we know we have products with a wide range of applications throughout the country’s construction, logistics, agriculture and mining industries. Finding the right partner to develop that potential has been the key. That’s why we are so pleased to come together with Flexilift, because we can build on their nationwide footprint. Their experience in successfully launching a specialised forklift, and their after-sales service capacity says a lot about what they bring to the table in our partnership.”
Sellick Equipment has become one of North America’s most innovative manufacturers in the field of rough-terrain materials handling equipment. This started in 1968, when founder Walter Sellick modified a Ford industrial tractor into his first 6,000 lb. forklift for outdoors use. Keeping at the forefront of the industry, Sellick introduced the integral one-piece frame concept across all model lines in 1975. 1987 saw the introduction of a new component designed series featuring various engine options, popular shift-on-the-go transmissions and See Thru roller masts. The introduction of the S-Series forklift and our optional fully automatic Powershift transmission in the late 1990s ushered in the new millenium. In 1995, our Truck Mounted Forklift TMF-55 was introduced, featuring a 2.5 tonne lift capacity and 2 – 3 wheel drive.
Sellick’s broad line of RT forklifts includes: TMF-55 – truck-mounted forklifts up to 2.5 tonnes, increasing efficiencies for users in logistics and trucking S-Series – with lift capacities up to 5.5 tonne and 2WD or 4WD versions SG-Series – more compact machines up to 2.7 tonnes, with a specialised poultry industry model The TMF-55 reduces turn-around time to a minimum thus maximizing the complete delivery system – driver, lorry and trailer. Since the TMF-55 quickly and easily loads itself on the back of a truck or trailer, it saves valuable cargo space and eliminates towing a trailer. Operational efficiency is increased, because the truck driver is also the operator of the forklift.
