Big Joe Forklifts is also proud to announce the addition of Kurt Spyke who will serve as the Strategic Products Manager: New Products. Spyke joins the Big Joe team to build early engagement and customer experiences with new products such as the J2-192.
Spyke comes to Big Joe with nearly 20 years of experience across the material handling industry. With a focus on new products, Spyke will build and develop relationships throughout Big Joe’s multichannel distribution network to enhance customer engagement, adoption, and experiences in relation to new equipment releases and new market opportunities for the company.
“Joining the team at Big Joe came at a perfect time for me,” Spyke said. “I’m excited to take on a new role that will be an opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. I’m fortunate to be at the forefront of bringing our new products to market and to work with customers early on, building momentum for the future. I look forward to introducing the J2-192 to the market and providing a solution for those looking for something that allows them to improve their operations and ultimately serve their customers better.”
The Big Joe J2-192 can be used with a wide range of pallet types or order-picking carts and elevates loads to 192 inches via a three-stage steel mast. In addition to enhancing productivity and driving characteristics, the J2’s dual control system enables the operator to choose a stance that improves their line of sight during travel, while staging loads, or when elevated. The J2-192 comes outfitted from the factory with a 24v industrial 340ah battery to support the run time needs of most users and features AC drive motors, an LCD programmable display, pallet clamp, and an anchor, tether, and harness system that attaches to the machine’s overhead guard.
