Announcing the Finalists for the Fork Lift Truck Association’s Awards for Excellence 2012, the FLTA has paid tribute to the high quality of companies, services and products which will compete in the materials handling industry’s most prestigious and established Awards.
A total of twenty four nominations from nineteen different companies from the UK, Europe and beyond will vie to earn an ‘Archie’ at Awards 2012, which will take place on Saturday 18 February at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole.
FLTA Chairman Martyn Fletcher says: “This year’s finalists – our official Pick of the Year’s best products and services – represent the companies who have created something innovative and original that will make a real difference for the lives of those who work with and alongside fork lift trucks.
“Each has made a significant contribution to raising standards within our industry – which is the very aim of the Awards themselves. That is why it is so important for their efforts to be recognised through a vote… by the very people who stand to benefit from these achievements.”
All users of materials handling equipment are strongly encouraged to vote. This includes anyone who owns or hires fork lift trucks, as well as those who manage, supervise or train fork lift operators – and, of course, the operators themselves. With their first-hand experience, they are perhaps the most discerning judges of all.
Voting for Awards 2012 is now open. The public voting will take place exclusively online, to ensure that only valid votes are counted.
Visit the Awards section of the FLTA website at www.fork-truck.org.uk/awards to find information on each of this year’s finalists and instructions on how to cast your vote online. The last day of voting is Wednesday 18th January 2012.
