The finalists for the 2016 Design4Safety Awards - run in parallel with IMHX by the British Industrial Truck Association - have now been decided across the six award categories encompassing all aspects of the materials handling industry.

The awards, organised by BITA, are open to all companies exhibiting at IMHX 2016, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham from 13th-16th September.
