Armill Lift Trucks is located in Essex and has been an EP dealer since 2020. EP’s Head of UK Sales, Simon Manasseh, put Armill as a key partner for our UK business saying “The team at Armill Lift Trucks are doing a really great job of promoting and selling EP Lithium Ion Forklift Trucks to their customers who are benefitting from all the advantages our trucks give as they move from IC engine trucks to clean, maintenance free lithium ion batteries”.
It’s great to see such drive behind the lithium-ion revolution from a dealership with family values at its heart. Armill was founded in 1991 by Peter and Anne Millar and now decades later the team is headed up by their son and company owner Gary Millar and Managing Director David Dadd, who’s sons now both also work for the business. Their passion for the industry has been reflected hugely in their success with EP sales of 28 forklift sales in 6 months and numerous secured hire contracts that have seen some of their largest customers transform their entire fleets with the power of lithium-ion. Now in 2021 Armill is celebrating its 30th year of business and 1st year as an EP dealer.
Having previously worked closely with Jungheinrich, the team at Armill are enjoying their experience working with EP and Gary highlighted how EP’s dealer support is a real strength;
“To me a supplier is more than just someone who sells to you, they support your business when things go wrong, they look at ways to assist your company’s growth at their own cost, to understand that they need us as much as we need them” The Armill service team have found the EP telematics and BMS systems to be a huge time saver when attending sites with the remote diagnosis capabilities and affordable spare parts systems offered by EP Care allowing Armill to stick to its 98% first time fix promise.
The state-of-the-art spray booth at their Braintree HQ has seen a number of EP trucks transformed from the usual bold red to some customised colours as requested by customers, a favourite being a bright green that ties in nicely with the environmental and financial benefits of lithium ion. David is so committed to the ‘go green’ message that comes with being an EP dealer that he has redesigned their delivery lorry to reflect this, and the entire team are working hard to spread the word across all of their social media platforms.
Managing Director David highlighted the EFL 302 as his favourite product;
“I have been in the machinery sales industry for over 30 years, I have yet to see any other product have the same wow factor in the marketplace. The EP EFL302 has all the benefits of an IC engine truck such as large wheels, robust construction, powerful, comfortable and a pleasure to drive. But its biggest advantage is the LFP lithium battery, this is a showstopper and offers massive fuel savings, quiet working, power on demand along with all of the environmental benefits. This truly is a truck for the future… diesel is dead”
Discussing future plans for their EP partnership Gary intends to work even more closely with EP; ‘
We have invested in parts and plan to hold one of the largest stocks of EP equipment and to not only supply the end user but also other dealers as we believe such amazing machines should be accessible to all businesses across the country’.
