Amvar, the Midlands based materials handling and storage integrator has become one of the first forklift truck dealerships in the UK to gain accreditation status from the industry trade body – Fork Lift Truck Association.

AMVAR gains prestigious compliance award.

AMVAR Handing Solutions Limited has become one of the first companies in the West Midlands to achieve the national certificate of compliance from the country’s foremost authority on materials handling: the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA).


The TCM dealership underwent a rigorous on-site audit, which required compliance with more than 100 different criteria, covering the company’s records and procedures, along with its safety policies and practices.


FLTA Quality Manager Lee Medway carried out the audit. He explains why the process is so important to AMVAR’s customers: “The audit is designed to give customers real peace of mind. As an audited company, customers know that AMVAR has measured up to an industry-led health check, has comprehensive public and product liability insurance, operates impressive environmental policies and has equal opportunities procedures.


“The certificate presented to them is concrete evidence that this is a company working to the highest standards and nationally agreed criteria – clearly differentiating it from the many unaccredited suppliers in this marketplace.”


Our MD Malcolm Mitchell, said “We are really pleased to have achieved this quality standard. We work hard to ensure our business is the best it can be, for the environment, our staff and our customers. This hard work has paid off: to pass an FLTA Quality Audit is to be among the best fork lift dealers in the country.”
