Crunch! Martin Bayfield to host 2016 FLTA Awards

Held at The International Centre in Telford on Saturday 27th February 2016, the FLTA Awards for Excellence recognise the important developments made by the materials handling industry in areas of health and safety, training, product development, environmental responsibility, customer service and operator ergonomics.
Winners receive the materials handling industry's highest accolade: the iconic Archie statuette.
