Testimonials / Case Studies

EP order picker No 4 just arrived at our brand new DC in Hamilton. Opening a facility here is a considerable investment & commitment to our Waikato and Bay of Plenty customers and we need things to go just right. The order pickers in our other 3 locations have been so successful that it was an absolute must to invest in another machine for the new team in Frankton. Right across the country our order picking times have been considerably reduced by these machines and they add a whole new level of safety for our guys moving up and down our pallet racking as they assemble customer orders. All the machines have been 100% reliable to date and I highly recommend Jeff, Robyn and their team at Hurricane as being good guys to deal with.
