Singapore’s Lian Hup Brothers acquires eight Manitou machines

Singapore’s Lian Hup Brothers Pte Ltd has purchased eight Manitou machines, which comprise another three units of MT-X 1840, three units of MC-X 50-4 and two units of MI 35 D. These machines were supplied by Manitou Center Singapore (MCSG), a leading provider of telehandlers and rough-terrain forklifts in the country.

Previously, Lian Hup Brothers invested in the MRT-X 2660, MT-X 1840 and M-X 50-4 units. Due to familiarity and excellent support, the company has decided to continue its partnership with MCSG.

The MT-X 1840 telehandler can lift loads of up to 4 t to up to 18 m and is perfectly suited to sites where work at height is required. Its generous ground clearance, three steering modes and sharp turning radius make manoeuvrability easy on uneven terrain.

The MC-X 50-4 rough-terrain forklift is designed for activities on difficult terrain or with obstacles. It is able to lift loads of up to 5,000 kg with four-wheel drive and a ground clearance of 43 cm, thus offering good manoeuvrability on the jobsite. Users also benefit from a choice of tyres, allowing them to adapt to every ground condition and in turn increasing their work productivity.

Moving forward, Lian Hup Brothers is planning for further investments in 2025, including additional MT-X 1840, M-X 50-4 and MI-X 35 D units. The company is set to deploy its Manitou machines on various construction projects.

Established in 1968, Lian Hup Brothers specialises in general import and export of heavy vehicles, motorcycles, motorcars, spare parts, body parts (e.g. engines, gearboxes, cabins, chassis, pumps, etc) and other related accessories including motor insurance and motor accident claims. In the last decade, the company has also ventured into heavy machineries and fabrication and modification of heavy trucks, such as dump trucks and concrete mixer trucks as well as their related parts.
