In March 2019, Compact Fork Trucks was one of the first of 46 companies in the UK, to be awarded the Certificate of Compliance by the UK’s foremost authority on material handling equipment; the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA).
To achieve this, Compact underwent a 100-point on site audit, created to ensure consistently high standards and compliance across all areas of business operations, including health, safety, environmental and risk management.
