Empress 2000, Orwak’s distributor in Italy, is proud to have contributed to Toyota Material Handling’s compaction of spare parts packaging by installing two balers, one ORWAK POWER 3420 and one ORWAK COMPACT 3110, in Toyota’s spare parts store in Bologna.

TOYOTA MATERIAL HANDLING offers a wide range of warehouse equipment and counterbalanced forklift trucks. The Toyota spare parts facility in Bologna serves all of Italy and Europe with parts. Thanks to the compaction that the Orwak balers provide, the collection, handling and transport of packaging waste are now much more efficient than in the previous solution (an external container) and result in important operating and economic advantages.

Health and Safety in Focus
Due to the compact size and technical features, the Orwak balers allow for an optimal reorganization of the internal warehouses and releasing valuable space that was formerly occupied by rubbish. These qualities and the remarkably silent operation of the machines make the working environment more orderly, safe and comfortable; aspects of fundamental importance to Toyota Material Handling given the company’s extraordinary attention to health and safety in the workplace.

Mr Fabrizio Fredella, Parts Operations Manager at Toyota Material Handling comments:
“I take the opportunity to give you my feedback on the balers just installed. They have significantly improved the work environment, we have gained in order and space, and also the waste disposal activity (from storing boxes to external containers) was practically cleared. Now everything is reduced to 1 pallet of cardboard and 1 pallet of plastic per week, resulting in reduced waste disposal frequency by the company and decreased waste management costs. In short, we are very satisfied with the newly installed Machines.”
