“Steve and the Hannaman team provided me with invaluable support when I joined Dale Farm’s Ash Manor site as Logistics & Customer Service Manager.
I was experiencing a lot of challenges but Steve worked closely with me to look at ways of improving safety on site.
When we received the new fleet of Forklift trucks he kindly provided us with safety check books for each truck to get us started and to encourage the drivers to care about their safety and to help look after the equipment.
I find Steve and the rest of the Hannaman team very helpful and easy to work with. They are quick responding and provide an excellent service and I would highly recommend using them.”
Kelly Capper Logistics / Customer Service Manager, Ash Manor Cheese, Wrexham
“Thank you for a great service! You really went out of your way for what was a very small job and I appreciate that.
The job went really well - thanks to your efforts.
All of the Hannaman team were very efficient and a pleasure to deal with.
It is so rare these days that companies put themselves out to help and then get it right first time on time.”
David Hughes, Managing Director, Nicol Hughes Foodservice
“Hannaman have given us what we required and surpassed our expectations.
I had to drop you an email after taking delivery of the new Mitsubishi FLT - what a fantastic piece of kit that is!
I’m happy we went with the upgrade on the cab controlled fork positioners, but all of the factory extras such as the fully enclosed cab, front and rear wipers, scales and dual speed mode were a very pleasant surprise for the FLT drivers - I can’t get them out of it!
Many thanks for your help and invaluable advice.”
Ian Mcgillivray, Operations Manager, Dantec Limited
“Calbee initially approached Hannaman requiring racking, industrial floor care and forklifts, at our new production facility in Deeside, North Wales.
During the project installation stages, Hannaman supplied the short-term rental of a number of forklifts enabling us to install all the machinery within the production line. Some elements of the installation were quite complex but Hannaman always came up with the right solutions.
Due to the building of an excellent working relationship, we awarded Hannaman the contract to supply our material handling equipment, all of which was delivered as specified and within the required delivery timescales.
We have since continued to place orders and Hannaman has managed all of our operator training both for forklifts and access platforms ensuring that we have competent operators and that we remained fully compliant with current H&S legislation.
We look forward to working with them as both our businesses continue to grow and establish a fantastic working partnership.
I would fully recommend Hannaman to any other prospective business.
Simon Loftus, Project Engineering Manager, Calbee UK Ltd
“Steve and the team at Hannaman are always happy to help and are extremely quick to respond, whatever the request.
They understand the constraints and requirements of your business to ensure that you get the best material handling solution.
We were looking for a new approach to our stores management system and Hannaman provided us with a number of options.
Although I kept changing the plans and schedules, there was never any issue. I would fully recommend Hannaman.”
