The Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) has welcomed Alcester fork truck dealer Easy Truck Material Handling into its ranks as a full member.
Opened in 2009 by husband and wife team Kevin and Georgina Ryan, Easy Truck Material Handling has defied the recession by offering high-quality fork truck services with a strong emphasis on customer care. As a result, the company has prospered, supplying and servicing materials handling equipment across the Midlands and Warwickshire.
Membership of the FLTA, the UK's leading authority on fork lift trucks, requires that companies meet strict quality requirements. As such, the FLTA members’ badge is recognised nationwide as a seal of professionalism.
Achieving this status places the firm alongside the industry's biggest and most recognised names.
The FLTA exists to raise standards in the fork lift truck industry. As well as needing a good reputation and financial security, members sign up to a stringent code of practice, covering business conduct, customer service and safety, and gain access to world-class technical expertise.
Managing Director of Easy Truck Material Handling, Kevin Ryan (pictured), explains: “By working to the FLTA’s high standards and recommendations since day one, our business has gone from strength to strength.
“Today, we employ eight people and last July we were appointed official Cesab dealers. Full membership was clearly the next step in building upon the strong company we’ve built. As well as unlocking a huge number of benefits, membership allows us to get involved in the FLTA’s ground-breaking initiatives – early on.”
Always looking forward, Easy Truck Material Handling’s next goal is achieving ISO9001 certification – international recognition of the company’s excellent customer service. Kevin adds: “We now have access to the FLTA’s wealth of online guidance – including guidelines on how to achieve that very ISO.”
FLTA Chief Executive Peter Harvey said: “By accepting only the material handling industry’s best companies, we can assure customers that they can expect outstanding service from an FLTA member.
“Easy Truck Material Handling has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to providing professional fork truck services and excellent customer care – values that the association seeks to uphold. We are really pleased to welcome them on board.”
