Why it pays to buy Grab-O-Matic for all your drum handling needs
Did you know that well-manufactured drum handling equipment can be expected to last for decades? Buying cheap products might seem like a good solution, but when you factor in lower-quality materials and production methods, not to mention the lack of customer support, broken equipment can prove far more costly.
In this blog we explain why St Clare Engineering drum handling equipment is the best investment you can make.
St Clare Engineering is expert in designing robust drum handling equipment to the very highest standards. As a family business, we have been manufacturing a range of forklift truck drum attachments under the Grab-O-Matic name since 1959. We are experts in designing equipment to lift, move and tilt drums and now offer a wide selection of attachments to manoeuvre drums whatever their size, weight or shape.
We also supply and modify specialist equipment including work platforms, self-dumping hoppers, stacker trucks, and reel turning units. St Clare Engineering supplies high quality equipment to the oil, chemical, logistics and engineering industries across the world and has a world class reputation you can trust.
Hands-on quality assurance
We use the best materials rather than cutting costs by using cheaper but weaker alternatives – all our components are from reputable sources within the UK.
Every piece of equipment we build, including our best-selling Grab-O-Matic drum handling forklift truck attachments, is individually hand-assembled by the team at St Clare Engineering in Eastleigh, Hampshire. This means we can be sure that each product meets our high standards – every unit is inspected, tested and certified before leaving our premises.
Excellent after-sales service
As a family business, we are proud of everything we manufacture and we want you to enjoy using it for many years. We are always ready to answer your questions to find out exactly which piece of drum-handling equipment will best suit your needs, and ensure it is delivered where and when you want it.
St Clare Engineering also offers an excellent after-sales service, with certified annual preventative maintenance, servicing and repair options to help keep your investment working for you long after other brands have failed. Many of our customers come back for servicing and repair of our drum handling equipment many years after purchase: in fact, a quantity of 2-DLR double drum handlers delivered to Esso at Fawley in the late 80’s is still going strong after 35 years!
