Fiberspar LinePipe LLC, Houston, Texas, recently took delivery of a Hoist Liftruck P1100. The 110,000-pound capacity lift truck is used for handling large reels of LinePipe. The lift was specially designed with 32 feet of lift and a unique attachment to handle their reels, up to 22 feet in diameter. Toyota Lift of Houston was the Hoist dealer that sold the lift truck. Fiberspar also owns two 55,000-pound capacity Hoist P550 lift trucks.
Fiberspar is an industry leader in high-strength, fiber-reinforced tubular products for the oil and gas industry. Its innovative spoolable LinePipe products are widely accepted by the industry's top producers, providing dramatic cost and performance improvements over conventional steel and stick fiberglass.
“We purchased the Hoist unit to meet the objectives of our company," said a representative of Fiberspar. "We are moving large reels of high-strength, fiber-reinforced tubular products. Hoist was willing to engineer a solution that worked for our application. Other vendors wanted us to take a standard and make it work to our application. Hoist took the important steps to send an engineer to fully see what our needs were and design a forklift to meet them. The unit has performed as guaranteed and engineered. We are very pleased with the units, along with the sales and service support from the local Toyota dealer and the Hoist Factory.”
