Superior lifting solutions Simpro Handling Equipment is celebrating 30 years as a leading provider of lifting solutions designed to improve its customers’ efficiency and safety standards. The company was formed in 1986 and today is just as committed to delivering smart lifting solutions that improve health and safety in the workplace. Its bin tippers and stackers are boosting productivity and safety in thousands of workplaces across New Zealand, Australia, Europe and America. Sales executive Braden Simmons says Simpro is a great Kiwi success story. The first bins were designed and built for Auckland City Council in 1986, with the company now exporting throughout the world.

Simpro Handling Equipment builds a range of innovative products, including: Bin tippers: • Multi-tip • Dumpmaster • Megadumper • Ezi-MT • Dockmaster • Forklift tipper • Stainless steel tippers • Wheelie bins • WeighRite.

All of our products are designed and manufactured in New Zealand and are great examples of New Zealand innovation and thinking outside the box to solve workplace problems.

Simpro is the market leader in bin tippers, stackers and specialised materials-handling equipment, which are unique and intelligently designed. Its products have an enduring reputation for safety, reliability and smart workflow technology.

Simpro’s product range includes the popular Dumpmaster bin tippers, which are the ultimate solution for emptying bins or drums weighing up to 300kg at virtually any height. The Multi-Tip from Simpro is safe, economic, easy to use and versatile, and ideal for schools, recycling centres and councils, utilising an innovative and safe tipping mechanism. Simpro’s Quikstak smart stacker is easy to move and steer and improves productivity, while reducing or eliminating the risk of operator injury.

Stackers and lifters: • Quikstak smart-stacker • Crate Wizard • Crate Genie • Hylifta Goods Lift.

A relatively new product for the company is the Ezi-MT light-duty manual bin tipper, which is an environmentally friendly option for low volume users. It uses 60 percent less steel than other bin tippers and has no powered components, generates no electronic waste and is completely recyclable. “We have always tried to keep our product line quite tightly focused on improving workplace safety,” Braden says. “We have a totally focused product range and we believe it’s the best in the world.”

Simpro Handling Equipment has plans to move into a larger purpose designed manufacturing facility within the next two years. Business development manager, Daniel Currie says recent changes to the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 have provided a great opportunity for the company, which provides the ultimate solution for customers handling large volumes of waste and are concerned about their ability to comply with the law.

Innovative Kiwi manufacturers “All of our products are designed and manufactured in New Zealand and are great examples of New Zealand innovation and thinking outside the box to solve workplace problems,” Braden says. “We have a full CAD environment with 3D printing for prototyping and we’re working to move into a 21st century manufacturing model.”
