Efficient work, significantly reduced strain injuries and an easier workday.
These are words that the baggage handlers at Heathrow Terminal 2 have used to describe the way Vaculex’s vacuum lifting solutions have made their work easier.

Heathrow Airport is a major international airport in west London, England, UK. Heathrow is the busiest airport in the United Kingdom, busiest airport in Europe by passenger traffic, and sixth busiest airport in the world by total passenger traffic. In 2015, it handled a record 75 million passengers.


The baggage halls in Heathrow are varied in their physical constraints and required multiple solutions.
Vaculex was shown the terminal and it’s challenges and began work on a solution to maximize user happiness, efficiency and safety.

The Solution

“Before Vaculex we had a lot of problems with heavy lifting here at Heathrow. Thanks to the Vaculex Solutions the work is much more efficient and my staff doesn’t suffer from back problems anymore. Vaculex is a fantastic equipment.”
