VOTE NOW! FLTA unveils ‘Pick of the Year’

13 November 2013

Announcing the Finalists for the Fork Lift Truck Association’s Awards for Excellence 2014, the FLTA has praised the innovation displayed by companies shortlisted for the materials handling industry’s most prestigious Awards – and has urged everyone to cast their vote.

The 24 nominations – representing 17 companies from across the globe – will form the industry’s annual Pick of The Year and will vie to earn an ‘Archie’ at Awards 2014, to be held on Saturday 1st February at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole.  

FLTA Chairman Geoff Martin says: "This year’s Finalists comprise the very best of the year’s products, services and people.  

"This list represents all that’s finest in the fork lift truck sector – in its widest sense: from collision avoidance systems and remarkable fuel efficient engines to life-saving safety campaigns and futuristic gloves that remotely control trucks.

"Some of the companies are household names, but alongside them are smaller enterprises – energetic young companies who may be unfamiliar now – but certainly won’t remain so. 

"It’s a line-up that is nothing, if not diverse. But every Finalist in our Pick of the Year shares one thing in common: a commitment to creating something innovative and original that will make a real difference to the lives of those who work with and alongside fork lift trucks.

"Each has made a significant contribution to raising standards – which is why it is so important for their efforts to be recognised through a vote by the very people who actually stand to benefit from these achievements.”

Voting is open to anyone whose work involves materials handling equipment. This includes anyone who owns or hires fork lift trucks, as well as those who manage, supervise or train fork lift operators – and the operators themselves.  

Voting for Awards 2014 is now open and will close on 31st December 2013. To ensure validity, all voting will take place online.
