Combilift received top honours at the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) Awards for Excellence held recently in Birmingham, UK.
In keeping with the Olympic theme of the night, Combilift walked away with the gold when they won the Innovation award for the second time for their new rough terrain RT forklifts.
The Combi-CB forklift was also awarded the first and only ‘Victor Ludorum’ prize, billed by the FLTA as the ultimate winner of winners in the awards’ 18-year history. This prestigious honour was a special one-off award chosen from every winning entry in all previous awards in the Environment, Ergonomics, Safety and Innovation categories.
The best-selling Combi-CB rough terrain forklifts are designed for operations handling a mix of both palletised and long loads.
Winners of FLTA awards receive an Archimedes (or ‘Archie’) statuette cast in bronze by internationally renowned sculptor Les Johnson. Combilift received a unique gold plated Archie, which was created in commemoration of the Association’s 40th year.
According to Combilift MD Martin McVicar, the awards recognise the company’s continuous innovation and substantial investment in R&D.
He adds that to have the Combi-CB acknowledged by their peers in the materials handling sector as having made ‘the most outstanding contribution to the industry since the awards began’ is the ultimate tribute.
Combilift forklifts are available in Australia through Adaptalift Hyster .
