The all new EP Europe Distribution center

At EP Equipment we believe in a strong network of partners to develop new products, create exceptional after sales support and share opportunities among partners. In 2011 EP Equipment founded their European distribution centre in Belgium to support the local dealer structure with technical training, spare parts supply and trucks on stock to improve the overall customer service throughout Europe.

In the past years, EP has created growth of over 40% year by year and a record year 2017 with over 10.000 trucks sold in Europe alone. As our prediction for 2018 is even stronger, the need for a bigger footprint in Europe in terms of spare parts, support staff and truck stock was growing.

 

Spare parts

Since February 2018, EP has moved into new facilities near the city of Brussels, Belgium. At over 1.000m2, we increased our stock inventory significantly. For most relevant parts we can supply our dealers all over Europe within 24hours and technical support in French, English, Dutch and German.

Training

At EP we believe that we can only grow together and to learn from each other plays a key part in this strategy. Especially with the introduction of more and more Lithium Ion products and order picking equipment we see the need for more training. Now we established a central training facility for 24 participants in our new distribution centre where we will offer after sales and sales training for all our European dealers free of charge to continuously improve our quality of service together with our partners.

Open Dealer day

As we want to give our dealers and partners the opportunity to try our products, we will start bi-weekly open dealer day at our facilities in Belgium. The goal is to give our partners inside information on the development of EP Equipment, new products and the service back up from EP Distribution centre. In a visit of 3-4 hours, our partners can learn more about our products, the EP After sales System EP CARE as well as the advantages of our products.
We are looking forward to see you soon!

EP Equipment & SHS Dealer Day UK

As most days this year, the day of the 24. July was boiling hot, when EP Equipment and SHS Handling invited 15 selected dealers from all over the UK to join our Team in Brackley, Northamptonshire for the first UK dealer day. Product testing, networking and a large barbecue, prepared by the owners of SHS Handling made this first dealer day in the UK a huge success.

Our Hosts – SHS Handling

SHS Handling is a partner of EP Equipment since 2013 and has since grown their material handling business to over 1.000 trucks per year with a growth of over 40% per year. With a strong foothold in e-commerce and distribution logistics, SHS is a great partner to service key account customers as well as a growing dealer network all over the UK.

The target of this very first UK dealer day was to connect with other dealers, get to know new and established products and exchange best cases with fellow dealers.

The products – pallet trucks, stackers, order picker, counterbalance

At EP Equipment we strive to develop trucks that bring a revolution to the usage and application of a truck. During the dealer day, our partner could test different products at different performance levels in each truck category

Pallet trucks

Starting in 2012 with a very compact pallet truck, the EPT 20-15ET, we moved on creating the EPT 20-15EHJ a semi electric pallet truck at a weight of only 130Kg until we introduced the EPT 12EZ in 2016 – the world lightest and smallest full electric pallet truck. During our dealer day, our partners used the opportunity to find out, which truck from classical lead acid trucks to new generation Li-Ion equipment is best for each application.

Order picker

With the introduction of the JX1 order picker, EP Equipment quickly reacted to the fast growing E-Commerce driven change in order picking. Less picks per order and smal goods are the strength of EP. During the dealer day, we unveiled the all new JX0, a compact and extremly stable truck for occasional order picking or maintenance work in the warehouse. During the event, we discussed several customers who are desperately waiting for such a machine and organised first demonstrations at the same day.

After a long and exciting day, all of us have new ideas on product development, potential customers and projects, that we will realise as an even stronger team in the UK. A big thanks to all attendees and of course the team of SHS for making this day possible!
