Many congratulations to Combilift who have won the International Forklift of the Year Award (IFOY) for the Combi-CS pedestrian counterbalance stacker forklift.
The IFOY Awards are one of the most prestigious and keenly contested international awards in the materials handling industry. The Combi-CS has won the Warehouse Truck Lowlifter Category. This is the second win for Combilift in recent weeks with the Combi-CBE4 having won the 2020 Red Dot Design Award for the Combi-CBE4.
The Award-Winning Combi-CS
The Combi-CS is the only pedestrian counterbalance stacker that will operate in a conventional reach truck aisle for space saving and productive storage and handling. It features Combilift’s unique, internationally patented and award winning multi- position tiller arm which can be turned to the left or right of the unit to position the rear drive wheel, allowing the operator to remain in the safest position – at the side of the machine rather than at the rear as is the case with other pedestrian stackers. This ensures optimum visibility of the load and surroundings as well as guaranteeing maximum safety in areas where other personnel or members of the public may be present.
Taking it all in – A ceremony online!
Of course, whilst previous years have meant a gala ceremony for the awards night, currently such an event is not possible. But that didn’t mean that anyone needed to miss out.
The organisers rolled out the virtual red carpet for the winners on the Internet on July 13th 2020 at www.ifoy.org.
IFOY founder and Executive Chairperson of the IFOY Jury Anita Würmser said: “Special times require special solutions and this year’s IFOY Awards were dedicated to the best innovations in intralogistics and moreover to the people who make intralogistics happen.”
