There is a range of material handling requirements involved in the manufacturing and distribution of glass products. Dawsongroup | material handling has the ability as an independent supplier to provide a broad range of products, from Telescopic Handlers and Dumpers, for the handling raw products to standard and double handler forklifts for the manufacturing, warehouse and distribution side of the business.

Dawsongroup | material handling first met with Allied Glass to discuss a casual hire as the reliability of their ageing equipment and the maintenance support they were receiving from other suppliers resulted in significant downtime. Michael Wood of Dawsongroup | material handling says “with our premium quality equipment and maintenance support we provided Allied Glass with the service to support their business, and with their increased confidence in our ability our relationship has grown to the point that we are now the main provider for their handling needs. This includes a telehandler and dumper truck in addition to the forklifts we have provided”.

“We have been able to give Dawsongroup numerous issues to solve and they have never disappointed.” Mike Falgate, Group Commercial Manager
