“This list represents all that’s finest in the fork lift truck sector. 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,” said FLTA chairman, Geoff Martin.

“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 now open to anyone whose work involves materials handling equipment.

It will close on 31 December 2013.
