Planning for quality. Always.

We are a European company and have factories in Sweden (Mjölby), France (Ancenis) and Italy (Bologna), where over 95% of the trucks we sell in Europe are produced. This way we can offer a wide range of warehouse equipment and counterbalanced forklift trucks produced by the Toyota Production System (TPS) quality standards.
