At Construction Sorel, health and safety goes beyond respecting the law. It is an absolute priority. They target nothing else but "zero accident".
The fact that they have a full time Health & Safety Coordinator who monitors the respect of standards and laws while favouring prevention and workers' physical integrity demonstrate well the importance they give to health and safety on construction sites.
For more than 25 years, this construction company has been working as a general contractor specialized in the realization of concrete works and now owns 5 Merlo telehandlers. "We always return to Merlo because these machines represent, above all, safety. Regardless of the operator, we know that no accident will be caused by one of our Merlo, mainly because, the telehandler locks itself automatically if we exceed the allowed load", said Mr. Sylvain Deschenaux, Vice-President at Construction Sorel.
Mr Deschenaux chose Merlo rather than a mini-loader because Merlo offers him many more possibilities and increases the productivity. Indeed, its greater capacity in bucket work, frontal reach, stability on abrupt ground, speed of movement (40 km/h), 360 degrees vision and the variety of compatible attachments represent advantages that no mini-loader possesses.
Construction Sorel owns several models of Merlo Panoramic which are used for handling, to load/unload and to transport coffering frames and material on their various construction sites.
Besides the important benefits regarding safety, all the foremen noticed the impressive fuel and maintenance savings that all the range of Merlo products generates. The full anti-torsion chassis built with the exclusive Ring of Steel TM, class 1 hydrostatic transmission, the speed of the boom and the narrow and independent outriggers with rapid deployment of Merlo are only some characteristics that workers and partners of Construction Sorel benefit from.
Manulift EMI, with branches in Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City, is the Canadian importer of Merlo products. Manulift EMI is proud to offer these innovative telehandler products to Canadian entrepreneurs.
The high demand for the Merlo product is clear with more than 700 units sold in Canada in the last six years. Merlo is the telehandler world leader with pure innovation for 40 years. With 28 units produced every day, Merlo is the most demanded telehandler brand worldwide.
