Shumani supplies world-class equipment across the breadth of the industrial and construction sectors. Brands include world-leading names like Bendi, Crown, Kalmar, and Doosan in the forklift market. Construction equipment brands include Bobcat, SANY, HPower, Weima, Luthian, Ozen, and Sullair. In the cleaning equipment market segment, Shumani offers Tennant, Genie, Sentinel and HighPoint.

Most of the equipment supplied by Shumani is used in the stores and logistics departments of both construction and mining companies. “We offer some exciting brands in these sectors, such as SANY and Bobcat. Our Crown forklift is the leading electric brand, which is tested and has proved resilient in the market,” says Nemukula.

“Our key offering remains forklifts, which will lead the way in terms of growth. We think there is still a lot of scope for Shumani in the market, as we offer a one-stop shop. We believe the construction and mining sectors will offer ongoing support as we continue to grow,” concludes Nemukula. The company’s sterling results have been buoyed by outstanding new equipment forklift sales, combined with a large contribution from its expanded rental equipment fleet.
