The Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) annually host the biggest and most prestigious event in the Materials Handling Industry calendar. The FLTA Awards were launched to encourage and reward examples of excellence throughout the fork lift truck industry and the FLTA Awards have a truly international appeal with sponsors and winners flying on from Europe and the Far East for the Oscars-style ceremony, presented by ITV’s Jonny Gould.
PLP Lift Trucks Ltd was set up in 1972 by Mr Paul Pleasants, who is still the Managing Director. Paul, who was also a director of the FLTA for several years, along with other employees of PLP Lift Trucks Ltd, attend the FLTA Awards yearly to support the Cesab brand of forklifts, converse with old friends and also raise money for charity. During the FLTA Awards in February 2015, Paul bid successfully on the Hall & Woodhouse Brewery Tour in Dorset, raising an incredible £700 for the Help for Heroes charity.
Similar to PLP Lift Trucks Ltd, Brindley Lift Truck Services Ltd was set up in 1978, where Mr Richard Hayes acquired the company from his father in 1992. Richard Hayes also regularly attends the FLTA Awards, and the awards in February 2015 was no exception. Having also been a director of the FLTA for several years, Richard made a successful bid on the Tedworth House tour in Wiltshire, raising a generous £1,300 for the Help for Heroes charity.
