Safety First with Merlo!


At Construction Sorel, health and safety go beyond respecting the law. It is an absolute priority. They target nothing else but “zero accident”.

The fact that they have a full time health and safety coordinator who monitors the respect of standards and laws while favoring prevention and workers’ physical integrity demonstrate well the importance they give to health and safety on construction sites.

For more than 25 years, this construction company has been working as general contractor specialized in the realization of concrete works. It now owns 5 Merlo telehandlers. “We always return to Merlo because these machines represent, above all, safety. No matter the operator, we know that no accident will be caused by one of our Merlo, mainly because, the telehandler locks itself automatically if we exceed the allowed load,” said Sylvain Deschenaux, vice president at Construction Sorel.

Mr. Deschenaux chose a Merlo telehandler over a mini-loader because it offers him many more possibilities and increases the productivity. Indeed, its higher capacity in bucket work, frontal reach, stability on abrupt ground, speed of movement, 360° visibility and the variety of compatible attachments represent advantages that no mini-loader possesses.

Construction Sorel owns several models of Merlo Panoramic which are used for loading /unloading and handling of formwork frames and material on their various construction sites.

Besides the important benefits regarding safety, foremen also noticed the enormous fuel and maintenance economy that the Merlo range generates. The, full anti-torsion chassis built with the exclusive Ring of Steel™, Class I hydrostatic transmission, the speed of the boom and the narrow and independent outriggers with rapid deployment are only some of the characteristics that workers and partners of Construction Sorel benefit from.

Manulift EMI Ltd., with branches in Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City, is the Canadian importer of MERLO telehandlers.
