Enabling companies to load and unload vehicles safely and efficiently is what Thorworld Industries is all about. An ever-increasing number of major businesses rely on them to achieve simple and cost-effective solutions to their loading bay equipment problems, providing total peace of mind.
Thorworld is firmly established as a market-leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of loading and unloading equipment, together with an extensive range of accessories and safety aids.
The company provides a one-stop single source for a wide variety of loading bay and materials handling products, including mobile yardramps which are ideal for the fast loading and unloading of vehicle trailers by fork truck, particularly where there is no raised loading dock.
In addition to mobile container loading ramps, available for purchase or rental, Thorworld’s comprehensive product offering includes dock shelters & seals, dock levellers, dock plates & boards, dock & vehicle bumpers, wheel chocks, vehicle restraints and modular loading docks, as well as the Truckloada mobile yardlift and the Dockloada scissor lift platform.
Its Standard, Deluxe and Super Deluxe (light, medium and heavy duty) container loading ramp ranges feature models with 6, 7, 10, 12 and 15 tonne capacities and lengths from 11 to 12.2 metres.
With a strong presence in the distribution, logistics, transport, retail, food, drink, manufacturing and service industries, the company’s large volume of repeat business and consistently favourable comments received clearly demonstrate the significant level of customer satisfaction being achieved in relation to both its product quality and sales/service support.
East End Foods Plc, one of the country’s leading spice, lentil and rice importers, has two 3 tonne capacity Thorworld lightweight mobile loading platforms at its processing plant.
Director Jitendra Wouhra said: “The mobile platforms can be positioned in the most convenient spot for the unloading of containers and have made us much more efficient. They also provide a far safer working environment for our warehouse staff.”
As well as providing single items of equipment, Thorworld designs, manufactures and installs complete bespoke loading/unloading systems.
The lack of a loading bay at expanding food and drinks business, the Serious Food Company, was solved with a combined Thorworld mobile yardramp and loading platform system.
The system consist of a 10 tonne capacity yard ramp, together with a loading platform fitted with a 6 tonne capacity electro hydraulic swing lip type dock leveller and a 6 tonne capacity loading platform.
Thorworld was chosen for the project because of the Serious Food Company’s satisfaction with two of the company’s 7 tonne mobile ramps that have been used by them for several years.
Thorworld Managing Director John Meale said: “We continue to grow our sales because customers trust us to provide appropriate and cost-effective, high quality solutions to their materials handling problems – precisely meeting their individual loading/unloading needs.
“To ensure long-term efficiencies and cost savings with safe working in and around the loading bay it pays to buy high quality equipment such as ours that is well-built, fully conforming to all UK & EU safety directives & legislation, and which is absolutely right for the job.”
