Prague (Czech Republic), June 2014 – Baoli Material Handling Europe s.r.o. now distributes its practical forklifts in the Polish market with two long-standing and experienced importers of material handling equipment. Pak Truck as well as Setmil decided to join the European distributor network of Baoli and to offer the reliable forklifts to their dealers and customers across Poland.
The headquarter of the distributor Pak Truck is based in Piaseczno, located close to the airport of Warsaw. Technical and sales support is also provided in two branches in other regions of Poland. The company has a long experience in the forklift business providing professional aftersales service by its skilled technicians. Pak Truck decided to offer Baoli to complement its portfolio with competitively-priced material handling equipment.
“Polish customers of forklifts are very price-conscious. We are convinced that we will see a lot of market demand for Baoli”, says Jerzy Pakulniewicz, General Manager of Pak Truck. “Baoli brand represents know-how, security and vision.”
The Baoli importer Setmil started business in the material handling industry over 15 years ago and is located in Zabre in the south of Poland located close to Katowice airport. The company has a strong service culture with a well developed service and support network all over Poland. It is already distributing several brands of material handling equipment via a dealer network. Setmil will offer Baoli forklifts to the existing dealers and additionally aims to acquire new dealers.
“We decided to complement our portfolio with Baoli, because it offers reliable forklifts as well as technical and sales support”, says Grzegorz Chruszcz, CEO and owner of Setmil. ”One example is the Electronic Parts Catalogue, which allows us to order spare parts fast and easily online. It started in 2014 and we understand it is just one tool among others, how Baoli is continuously improving its support for the distributors. The Service Manager of Baoli Material Handling Europe based in Prague is able to provide technical training in Poland. This differentiates Baoli from many other Asian brands offering just cheap product without aftersales support.”
„Eastern Europe and especially Poland is an important market for us, because we see huge market potential here for our practical and reliable forklifts“, says Rory Harvey-Kelly, General Manager of Baoli Material Handling Europe. “With Pak Truck and Setmil we are able to work with two very experienced distributors to enter this market. They have a professional approach already building a stock of spare parts and are exchanging knowledge with other distributors of our network. By attending our first European Distributor Meeting mid of May in Prague, they are able to gain access to experience and truck and parts stock held in Europe.”
Jerzy Pakulniewicz, General Manager of Pak Truck, decided for Baoli because of the competitive price and high standards of components in the equipment
