Hyundai Material Handling continues to expand its French network with the arrival of a new dealer specialising in forklift trucks. MANULIFT is now responsible for the sale, rental and repair of HYUNDAI forklift trucks in the Alsace region, including the departments of Bas-Rhin (67) and Haut-Rhin (68) as well as in the Belfort area (90).
Founded in 2013, the company Manulift is directed by Mr. Salim Mankour, aged 50, who has extensive experience in the sale of industrial trucks of all tonnages after having held various posts in the field of materials handling such as Industrial Sales Director, Sales Director, Development Director etc.
The company has been situated at Colmar (68), 70 km from Strasbourg and 40 km from Mulhouse, since its foundation. It offers forklifts between 1.5 and 16 tonnes, employs 6 staff and covers a radius of around a hundred kilometres around Colmar. "I have always been based at Colmar. For a very simple reason. You're at the crossroads between Mulhouse and Strasbourg. And also, there are no major competitors around Colmar, they are all based in Mulhouse or Strasbourg. There is a real demand for forklifts in Colmar", explained Salim Mankour.
Based on a site now stretching across 300 m², Salim Mankour will rely on his long experience in forklifts to develop the brand in the region among his customers who are made up of industry, small and medium enterprises, and who have already grown brand loyalty to Manulift. "Since the foundation of Manulift, we have grown continuously and our working area has now become too small, so I would like to construct a building not far from here since our geographical positioning is beneficial. I have already reserved a 2500m2 plot", commented the director, who is looking forward to constructing his own building.
"We hope to establish a long-term relationship with Hyundai Construction Equipment."
"We have great confidence in Hyundai products."
"Their machines are of very high quality, extremely comfortable and reliable, which is what our customers want."
And one of the strengths of Hyundai forklifts is that I will be able to offer both electric and diesel-powered machines. I can really adapt the product to the client's needs. At Manulift, we offer a professional service of the quality to match the standards of the Hyundai brand", declared Salim Mankour.
