INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY

Take control of your industrial technology fleet

CHG-MERIDIAN's Industrial Technology solution offers a new approach for managing your industrial equipment, which provides you with a cost-efficient and flexible one-stop solution.

Confidence with CHG-MERIDIAN

Independence

We are completely independent and are not owned by any manufacturers or banks. Therefore we can provide you with unbiased advice and ensure you remain in complete control. Furthermore, you also benefit from having the freedom of choice to combine multiple manufacturers within your technology estate.

Experience

With over 40 years of experience behind us, we like to think we've learned a thing or two along the way. Throughout our previous customer projects, we gained valuable experience, which we put into practice to benefit our current and future customers.

Transparency

We adhere to a strict code of conduct and as such our contracts provide you with complete transparency. Our pricing model provides you with fixed costs and 0% inflation, and we will present you with all your options for the end of term and work with you to find the best solution.

Competence

We work to ISO principles and are a member of the Finance and Leasing Association as well as a recognised lessor on a number of leasing and managed services frameworks. We combine this financial and commercial competence with our technological expertise to bring maximum value to our customers.

International Reach

With a presence in 25 countries covering Europe, North America, South America and Australia and New Zealand, we can facilitate our service into one contract across multiple geographies and sites.

Single Point of Call

We provide a single point of contact for all of our customer's technology requirements. Whether it be an issue with the procurement of assets, or the rollout of the assets, right through to the remarketing and the deletion of data from your assets, we have a solution bespoke to you.

FLEET MANAGEMENT FOR MATERIAL HANDLING VEHICLES

Non-captive expertise for a more efficient fleet

Our flagship solution focuses on fleet management for material handling vehicles, whether that be pallet trucks, forklifts, or electric-powered tow tractors. We provide our customers with a simplified, bespoke solution that gives our customers a true one-stop solution. We can bundle your industrial equipment (irrespective of manufacturer) together with any additional equipment that might be required, i.e. batteries and charging points, alongside the servicing and maintenance elements.

As experts in the leasing of the latest industrial equipment, we can, if required, offer bespoke financial models that are designed around your specific order volumes.
