Our brand roots go back as far as 1875, with the forklift factory in Craigavon opening in 1981. The plant has been a true success story in Northern Ireland, now employing hundreds of people, many of whom have been working at the factory for decades. In fact, 33 of the current staff have been working there since the first year that the plant opened.
Over the years, the factory has won multiple awards for its commitment to quality and staff, including achieving the Investors in People Gold Award and being crowned “Best Place to Work” from Workplace & Employment Awards. We have also led the way for sustainability in manufacturing, investing several million pounds in strategies and technologies to protect the environment, saving energy and water, and reducing carbon emissions.
