ASM Auto Recycling reached out for help with storage in their new facility in Aylesbury. Locators proposed using rail-guided Combilift C4000 multi-directional forklifts. These would be capable of operating within aisles of just 3,220mm wide. Despite this truncated size, the racking would cater to 432 vehicles. Given the previous 6,400mm aisle width, this significantly improved their storage capacity. This size was previously needed to operate a counterbalance forklift. Following the installation, Locators were asked to complete a second phase. This time, for an increased capacity of an additional 300 vehicles. For this, we recommended a Combilift C5000, which provided a greater lift height required for the new installation.

We are very pleased with the productivity and efficiency gains we have made at our sites. Locators have enabled us to achieve much more without the need to purchase additional land and this has a very significant cost benefit for us.

About Us


Founded in 1985 by Brian Cowles, Locators secured a distribution deal with Toyota. Soon after, we claimed our first major deal with Bacardi Martini in Southampton. Since then, the company has bloomed in partnership with Toyota. In fact, we became one of the first-ever suppliers of articulated forklifts. At first, we supplied customers solely from our purpose-built facility in Dorset. However, due to our growth, we widened our reach with Toyota and in 1996, established a branch in Reading. This gave us greater coverage of the M4 corridor and West London.
