Volvo picks JLT to improve connectivity on forklifts
Volvo is one of the most well-known and respected car brands in the world with sales in about 100 countries. Volvo Car Body Components manufactures body components (doors, hoods, tailgates, frames) for Volvo’s various car models. The factory has delivered components to Volvo since the car maker was formed in 1927 and became part of the company in 1969.
Kitting out forklifts
Volvo Car Body Components (VCBC) needed to add control and connectivity to the forklifts they use at their manufacturing plant in Olofström in Sweden. So, they turned to their IT systems partner, Idnet, for help.
“When the customer, Volvo Car Body Components, was about to select IT equipment for their production facility in Olofström, Sweden, they requested a solution that was designed to withstand the toughest operating conditions,” said Per Redenius, Key Account Manager, Idnet.
“We advised them to choose JLT Mobile Computers because we are confident that the rugged computers they develop and supply will provide years of trouble-free service.”
JLT supplied VCBC with the smallest vehicle mounted rugged computer on the market, perfect for installation in small forklift cabins. It’s scratch-resistant projective capacitive touch screen and quick lock feature for straightforward mounting and dismounting, makes it the best choice for a challenging environment where productivity is paramount.
This collaboration between VCBC and JLT Mobile Computers was publicly announced in a press release on October 4th, 2017.
