Unveiling the Cargotec signage

Moffett Engineering Limited, the Dundalk based manufacturer of Hiab Moffett truck-mounted forklifts and part of Cargotec Corporation has changed its name to Cargotec Ireland.

 
Moffett Engineering Limited started business in the 1940's by developing products for the local agricultural market and in the mid 1980's they created a revolution in the transport industry with the invention of the truck-mounted forklift, a three wheel drive machine that can be carried on almost any truck or trailer without the loss of load space, achieving significantly faster and more cost effective deliveries than ever. The current Hiab Moffett model range includes specialist machines for all applications from building, agriculture and animal feed, recycling, poultry, gas work and a huge range of other commercial and industrial uses. With a lift capacity from 1.5 to 3.5t and specialist attachments, the machine from Dundalk continues to stand for quality, innovation and the latest advances in safety and technology.

 
The company which celebrated 65 years in business in 2010 became part of Cargotec in 2000 and today the truck -mounted forklifts are branded as Hiab Moffett and are the global market leader.  The branding of the products as Hiab Moffett and the company name change to Cargotec are in line with Cargotec's branding strategy.  Hiab together with Kalmar and MacGregor are Cargotec's daughter brands and recognised leaders in cargo and load handling solutions around the world. Cargotec's Dundalk facility acts as a hub for truck-mounted forklift research and development, a global Hiab Moffett spare part centre and the prime multi-assembly unit for all Hiab Moffett truck-mounted forklifts.
Staff at Cargotec's Dundalk facility celebrated the unveiling of the new Cargotec Signage on Friday 26th August, with an employee function.
