Linde C400 Company ProfileBy 2008 Forklift Solutions was chosen by International (OEM) Forklift manufacturers Linde to become their Northern Territory State Distributor, this was followed shortly after by the same request from another well respected Forklift Company TCM.

In October 2009 the business moved into a new purpose built workshop and sales yard, with the business plan to establish a Sales & Rentals division to compliment the existing mobile mechanical operation.

The company needed to move from a three man operation to a larger structure – so more technicians were sourced and are still being looked for, also the need for a sales/ rentals person and a permanent administration person was required has been filled.

In 2012 the property adjoining was purchased and a 400m2 Showroom was built to keep new and used machinery protected from the harsh weather conditions in the NT. This was also the year when Forklift Solutions became the distributor for Kalmar.
2014 these premises have been out grown again and adjoining block of land was purchased to have lay down areas and show areas for large machinery’s.
Currently the land area used by Forklift Solutions covers approx. 4000 m2 and 700 m2 under roof.

In July 2016 this was followed by Hydralada NZ build Cherry Picker specialised for Mango farming, a great start with 30 machines sold in the first season.
Plans are in place with further suppliers to move more into the Agri Section.
