The Fork Truck Association has changed its name to Fork Lift Truck Association. The change coincided with a number of structural changes within the association and is intended to avoid any confusion with other trade organizations. Formed in 1972 as the Fork Truck Hire Association, the Fork Lift Truck Association has consistently expanded in terms of the size and scope of its operations. With more than 175 members, it is recognized as the largest in the fork lift truck sector, with an emphasis on raising standards and improving safety.
