By placing a Compact Lift in a “tower” outside the premises, Premould in Huskvarna has increased the storage capacity in a smart way and freed up space on the premises. Moreover, they have installed a frame in the tower for a further vertical storage lift in the future. This will considerably ease the assembly when a further lift is to be installed. The service opening in the wall is ready-to-use and temporarily closed off, to ensure minimal disruption during future installation.
