Welfaux Becomes One of the First UK Companies to Become FLTA-Accredited

We’re better than the rest – and we can prove it! We are one of the first companies in the UK to be accredited by the country’s foremost authority on materials handling.

Many people can sell or hire you a forklift truck, and all will tell you they’re the best.  But few – if any – can support that claim with solid evidence.


We can. 


Welfaux Materials Handling Ltd. has become one of the first companies in the UK to be awarded the national certificate of accreditation from the country’s foremost authority on materials handling: the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA).  


As members of the Fork Lift Truck Association, Welfaux Materials Handling abides by a stringent Code of Practice.  The Code is evidence that we are competent to offer expert advice and specify the most appropriate equipment. 


It means that we deliver robust, prompt service support, carried out by fully-trained engineers, use high-quality parts and are backed by insurance cover of more than £5M.


Underpinning that Code is the FLTA’s rigorous Audit.  Developed specifically for the forklift truck industry, it is unlike many other certifications which use an online questionnaire. Instead, a Quality Manager from the FLTA undertakes a physical on-site visit to inspect more than 100 criteria, across the areas of health and safety, environmental procedures and working practices.


FLTA Quality Manager Lee Medway carried out the audit.  He explains why the process is so important to Welfaux Materials Handling “The audit is designed to give customers real peace of mind, as an audited company, they know that Welfaux Materials Handling has measured up to an industry-led health check, works to standards demonstrably higher than non-compliant companies and removes a potentially weak link in your chain of traceability and accountability.”
