In the automotive industry, when transporting pre-production vehicles – also known as prototypes – in house, the focus is on two aspects: Camouflage and security. The FTP 32, a new design of vehicle transporter from Fulda-based special vehicle manufacturer Hubtex, fulfils these requirements within the scope of an intelligent system which ensures that the prototypes are concealed as they are transported through narrow hall gates. Its modular construction system enables the vehicle to be individually adapted to the requirements and transport tasks in car plants.

HUBTEX Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG from Fulda is expanding its presence in the USA. As of January 2021, the German lift truck manufacturer has acquired a 50% stake in the exclusive distributor Design Storage & Handling (DSH). In doing so, the company is continuing its international growth strategy, which began last year with the acquisition of the Australian subsidiary HUBTEX Australia. The goal is to further position both electric multidirectional sideloaders and special vehicles in the core markets, thereby strategically expanding the North American market in conjunction with DSH.

25 years of success in the Australian market with the highest market share globally: These accolades, which help distinguish HUBTEX Australia, can now be joined by another. With effect from September, HUBTEX Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG from Fulda, Germany will acquire 100 percent of the shares held by the previous owner. Not only does this make it a subsidiary, but it will also be one of the largest branches outside of Germany. This acquisition is enabling the forklift trucks manufacturer to significantly expand its business dealings in Australia and pursue an international growth strategy, even in the current economic crisis.

The re-designed DQ 45-X multidirectional sideloader from Hubtex is particularly low in emissions and noise. The core component is the low-noise, low-emissions turbo engine, which maintains impressively low energy consumption thanks to an intelligent vehicle control system. With its all-wheel drive and all-terrain soft tyres, it is the undisputed leader among the fourway forklifts when it comes to outdoor use. Hubtex has further enhanced this truck series to deliver a higher level of comfort in the driver's cab and easier maintenance.

The PhoeniX is the top energy saver among electric multidirectional sideloaders thanks to its electric steering. Hubtex is the first manufacturer worldwide to offer this energy-saving electric steering system as standard in all multi-directional forklifts from the new PhoeniX modular system with a current load capacity of up to 7 tonnes. By using electric steering, it is possible to reduce energy consumption by up to 85% in comparison with a standard hydraulic steering system. Based on the steering system's proportion of the vehicle's total energy consumption, this results in peak savings of up to 33%. In addition, electric steering systems are virtually silent, which makes work much considerably more pleasant for the driver.
