In Canosa di Puglia there is Europe’s largest nursery for Mediterranean plants where the Caporale family uses 15 Merlo telehandlers for the logistics of an incredible oasis of biodiversity.
Merlo and Caporalplant, love at first sight
The association with Merlo machines was completely natural. “The need to handle a large number of plants every day,” explains Giuseppe Caporale, the fourth generation in the company, “requires the use of many machines. Telehandlers are fundamental to our business. They are versatile, fast and solve many problems. We have not changed brand since we started using Merlo. The company has fifteen of them, both owned and hired.”
It’s a love at first sight that has blossomed for very specific reasons. “For us, certain characteristics are fundamental: speed, precision and lifting capacity,” Giuseppe Caporale explains. “These are all elements that characterise Merlo telehandlers and make them appreciated by our collaborators. In fact, applications for these machines range from handling large plants, to loading pallets onto trucks, to shaping and handling soil and topsoil.”
