Author : Molokini


Forklift truck distributor Schwede GmbH in Berlin-Reinickendorf is a new authorised dealer for materials handling equipment manufacturer Hyster Europe. The company has worked directly with the manufacturer since the start of August 2017.

A contract has now been signed by both partners at Hyster’s facility in Neu-Isenburg.
Since Holger Schwede took over the management of the long-established company in 2001, Gabelstapler-Vertrieb Schwede has become one the most powerful and experienced providers in the Berlin/Brandenburg region.
“We are constantly expanding our business and are now expanding our offering to include robust heavy-duty forklift trucks and container handlers,” says Managing Director, Schwede.
From pallet trucks to container handlers
The company, which specialises in the service and sale of forklift trucks, employs a total of 17 people, among them 14 experienced service technicians with many years’ experience in the forklift business.
“By working with full-line manufacturer Hyster, we can offer our customers the complete range for the first time,” says Schwede. With 140 different models, ranging from small hand pallet trucks to warehouse trucks and heavy-duty lift trucks capable of lifting up to 52 tonnes, Hyster is a leading worldwide lift truck designer and manufacturer.
“We have optimal solutions for a wide range of different industries” says Schwede.  For example, for the recycling industry Hyster offers rugged forklift trucks with the so-called Cool Truck, which can also be used in dusty environments. “In addition, we can deliver spare parts even faster in the future thanks to our direct cooperation with Hyster.”
Full service for all industries
Gabelstapler-Vertrieb Schwede supplies electric, LPG and diesel trucks for all industries, including the wood, healthcare, retail and beverage industries. “With our comprehensive emergency service, we can reach our customers in Berlin and Brandenburg in the shortest possible time in urgent cases,” says Schwede. In addition to service, distribution, financing and forklift rental, the company also regularly carries out forklift operator training.
Experienced partner
“With forklift truck distributor Schwede, we have gained a strong partner who reliably supports us in Berlin and Brandenburg,” says Timo Antony, Area Business Director Central Europe for Hyster. “Greater Berlin was one of the last gaps that needed to be filled. We are delighted to have gained an experienced partner in Schwede, who supports us in the expansion of our network.”
