Hiab booked during the first quarter of 2015 an order for MOFFETT truck mounted forklifts from Lowe's, a leading North American company with over 1,840 home improvement and hardware stores across the country. The value of this significant order is approximately USD 10 million and it is continuation for the order of truck mounted forklifts Lowe's made already in 2014. The customer comments: "We chose Hiab to be our partner because of the high quality of the equipment accompanied with the high level of service nationwide".
Hiab's sales director Ronald Verzijl says "We are very proud of being Lowe's partner. We have had a longlasting relationship with them since 1996 and delivered loader cranes as well as truck mounted forklifts over the years".
