MANULIFT joins the Hyundai Material Handling network

As part of its active dynamic of development and growth, Hyundai Material Handling welcomes MANULIFT, a new dealer specialising in forklift trucks.

Hyundai Material Handling is continuing to expand its French network with the arrival of a new dealer specialising in forklifts.

MANULIFT is currently responsible for sales, leasing and repair of HYUNDAI forklifts in Alsace, the Bas-Rhin (67) and Haut-Rhin (68) departments, and in the Belfort (90) region. 

Founded in 2013, the company Manulift is directed by Mr. Salim Mankour, aged 50, who has extensive experience in the sale of industrial trucks of all tonnages after having held various posts in the field of materials handling such as Industrial Sales Director, Sales Director, Development Director etc.

The company has been situated at Colmar (68), 70 km from Strasbourg and 40 km from Mulhouse, since its foundation. It offers forklifts between 1.5 and 16 tonnes, employs 6 staff and covers a radius of around a hundred kilometres around Colmar. “I have always been based at Colmar. For a very simple reason. You’re at the crossroads between Mulhouse and Strasbourg. And also, there are no major competitors around Colmar, they are all based in Mulhouse or Strasbourg. There is a real demand for forklifts in Colmar”, explained Salim Mankour.

Today based on a site of 300 m², Salim Mankour (pictured) will rely on his great experience of forklifts for developing the brand in the region and amongst his customers who are made up of industry, small and medium enterprises, and are already loyal to Manulift. “Since the foundation of Manulift, we have grown continuously and our working area has now become too small, so I would like to construct a building not far from here since our geographical positioning is beneficial. I have already reserved a site of 2,500 m2”, comments the director, who is impatient to construct the building.  

 “We hope to establish a long-term relationship with Hyundai Material Handling. We have great confidence in Hyundai products. Their machines are of very high quality, extremely comfortable and reliable, which is what our customers want. And one of the strengths of Hyundai forklifts is that I will be able to offer both electric and diesel-powered machines. I can really adapt the product to the client’s needs. At Manulift, we offer a professional service of the quality to match the standards of the Hyundai brand”, declared Salim Mankour.
