One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of forklift and telehandler products is continuing to support its customers’ handling needs with an attachment that transforms their forklifts into adaptable lifting equipment.

Contact Attachments designs and manufactures an extensive range of forklift jibs from its base in Mid Wales, helping customers to handle long and/or awkward loads through providing additional reach to their existing equipment. The jibs also support users in effectively lifting loads which are unable to be palletised.

Contact’s full range of jibs includes fixed length, raised-height and articulating jibs, as well as telescopic jibs for even greater height. Each of the firm’s jibs can be supplied as either fork-mounted or carriage-mounted, depending on the precise handling requirements.

In addition to its standard range, Contact can also custom-design jibs to a customer’s precise specification if required. For example, the team has produced a 12metre long jib designed to handle 10,000kgs for use within a marine environment.

Ensuring optimum handling safety is always paramount, and using a special jib rating chart, they’re able to rate each of their jibs in line with the capacity of the forklift being used – ensuring a precise match each and every time, and offering peace of mind to the operator that they’ll never overload their equipment.

With the continued growth of the firm’s range of telehandler attachments, the team is also producing lifting jibs not only for forklifts but for telehandlers and loaders too.


Contact Attachments has been designing and manufacturing forklift truck attachments from its base in Newtown, Mid Wales, for over 40 years and is recognised as the quality leader of truck attachments in the UK.
