Early days in Britain:
With considerable foresight, Jungheinrich's founder was the first industrial truck manufacturer who, in addition to branches throughout Germany, also began to develop a network of European subsidiaries.
In Britain, Jungheinrich UK Ltd's history goes back to 1963, initially registered as Jungheinrich (GB) Ltd, the fledgling company opened its first offices in Knowsley Street, Cheetham Hill, not far from Strangeways Prison in central Manchester. The initial team of five employees - armed with a single portable typewriter were soon hard at work and achieved a first year turnover of £50,000. In contrast, Jungheinrich UK Ltd now boasts a turnover of £175 million.
Jungheinrich has always led the field in electric warehouse trucks, setting new standards in internal logistics with a wide range of innovative developments. Principal amongst these was the launch in 1956 of the first reach truck with its retractable mast, a major step forward in increasing space utilisation in palletised warehouses and a field in which Jungheinrich remains a world leader.
Subsequent growth both organically and by acquisition - principally the purchase of Steinbock and Boss in 1994 with their emphasis on ic-engine forklifts - has seen the Group's portfolio increase to today's line-up which ranges from simple hand pallet trucks through all types of lift trucks (powered pallet trucks/stackers, counterbalance forklifts in both electric and ic-engine versions, reach trucks, order pickers, high rack stackers/order pickers) and on to the advanced systems supplied by the company's Projects Division.
