"We’re very excited to announce the establishment of the New Zealand Forklift Industry Association, a peak body for the forklift sector," association president, Rhys Walter, says.

Benefits of a membership to NZFIA includes:

  • National and international industry events,
  • Health and Safety systems,
  • industry-specific insurance,
  • industry representation to interact with government agencies (e.g. MBIE, Worksafe, Standards NZ), and
  • promotion of industry careers, products, and services.

An open industry meeting will be held at Sudima Hotel Auckland Airport on 10 April 2018 from 10am and is open to all forklift manufacturers, distributors, rental or lease companies, service providers, and end users.

"We need to hear the views of people and companies operating within the industry. This will enable the organisation to plan and prioritise," Rhys says.
