They were looking for an ergonomic lifting solution to lift heavy split air conditioner units individually on to a pallet and vice versa. The main aim was to reduce the manpower and increasing the efficiency of the process and at the same time offering an ergonomic solution which will protect the wellbeing of their most asset, their employees.
