Mitsubishi’s PREMIA ES power pallet truck wins international design award

Oct 10, 2012
The new Mitsubishi PREMIA ES pedestrian power pallet truck has been awarded the prestigious red dot award: product design 2012 for its high-quality, functional design.

A jury of 30 international experts honoured the hard-wearing pallet truck, selected from a field of more than 4,500 products, representing 1,800 companies from 58 countries.

Driven by the need for non-stop performance in the most challenging conditions, Mitsubishi designers paid special attention to durability and efficiency issues when developing the water-resistant 1.6 to 2.0 tonne pallet trucks.  For outdoor operation in all weather, PREMIA ES features a sealed chassis which offers protection to key components against water, dirt, dust and other particles. The truck’s high-efficiency electronic system also uses waterproofed components, for maximum reliability.  Further protection against damage is offered by its shock-resistant oil-filled transmission and robust fork design.

The low-maintenance design offers further costs savings for truck owners by offering a choice of two performance modes – as standard – to enhance safety, energy efficiency and productivity.

In receiving the prestigious red dot, the manufacturer joins a list of recent winners which includes BMW, Apple, Porsche and Bose. Launched in 1955, the award recognises exceptional products which demonstrate that “design is an integral part of innovative product solutions”.
