Committed employees make the difference
What makes HUBTEX different to other manufacturers?
There are many benefits for HUBTEX customers. We start with a consultative approach to solving their materials handling requirements. This is right through to the supply of industry leading products and then a first class after sales service from experienced HUBTEX technicians; but perhaps the most important overall benefit for the customer is that they don’t have to compromise when it comes to the products or the overall handling solution.
Unlike most mainstream manufacturers who try to sell products from a price list, HUBTEX are all about individual needs. We will offer a solution that is tailored to suit the individual needs of a company. Before any mention of products we first need to understand the customers’ business. This involves finding out what they are looking to achieve and also the challenges they are facing. We are often tasked with looking at layouts for a new operation. This includes the type of products to be stored, reducing footprints, improving handling efficiencies and ultimately advising on the best overall solution for them. Once all of these important aspects have been covered, we can then look at building a machine to meet these requirements.
Benefits of HUBTEX
Product reliability and Total Cost of Ownership are also two very important benefits with HUBTEX. Ideally, Hubtex would like to accompany the entire logistics value chain and thus offer customers synergies. Some examples include order picking systems in combination with multidirectional sideloaders in the timber industry, tool changing platforms in the automotive industry and special vehicles in aircraft construction. A large number of application examples in the UK demonstrate this and the benefits of using HUBTEX.
