Vakbeurs Recycling 2017: Hyster solutions for tough waste and recycling operations

22nd November 2017

A range of robust Hyster® trucks to support the recycling and waste management industries were on display at the Vakbeurs Recycling GO 2017 at the Evenementenhal Gorinchem, the Netherlands, from 24 – 26 October.

Visitors to the exhibition had the opportunity to talk with the experts from Heffiq, the Hyster® distribution partner in the Netherlands, about how Hyster® lift trucks can support operations throughout the waste and recycling chain.


At the Heffiq stand, guests had the opportunity to see a robust Hyster® H5.0FT diesel lift truck. Designed for high intensity applications, particularly where front-end attachments are needed, the Hyster® H4.0-5.5FT Fortens® series provides continuous strength and reliability. The model on display showed how Hyster® trucks can be adapted to meet the needs of the waste management industry, by featuring a Bolzoni 360° rotating fork positioner attachment.

For some applications, a tough electric forklift can be the best choice, so at the event Heffiq also showcased the Hyster® J2.5XN electric lift truck with a bale clamp. The highly manoeuvrable and energy efficient truck combined with a specialist attachment provides an ideal solution for recycling applications where paper bales are handled.

The popular Vakbeurs Recycling event, now in its 8th year, welcomed over 5300 visitors from companies looking to explore waste management solutions and new technologies.

Not only does Heffiq offer a complete range of Hyster® solutions to meet the requirements of the recycling and waste management sector, the company provides Hyster® lift trucks and warehouse trucks for all types of demanding industry applications. As the exclusive Hyster® dealer in the Netherlands, Heffiq offers customers extensive knowledge and experience, as well as nationwide service and support to help customers achieve maximum uptime.
