For nearly 50 years, Pyroban has been providing explosion protection solutions for materials handling equipment and diesel engines. Recently, it has played an important role in the renewal of the materials handling equipment fleet for Naturex, an established company operating in the food and beverage, nutrition, health and personal care sectors.

Naturex needed to replace an electric lift truck for Zone 2 and Zone 22 operations and chose the Toyota 8FBM16T.

Director of Naturex Stefano Marinelli says that safety has been one of the group’s top priorities for several years. “The first objective that we set ourselves when we had to change the fleet was to raise, if not maintain, the level of safety,” says Marinelli.

Pyroban, partner of Naturex, was founded in 1969 and today operates worldwide according to local and international regulations such as ATEX, IECEx, FEO and GB. Pyroban develops products to protect companies, employees and equipment when operating in hazardous areas where there is a potentially explosive atmosphere. The company collaborates with leading forklift manufacturers.
