Members of the Forklift Manufacturers and Distributors Association (NZFMDA) have recently approved changes that will broaden the representation of the forklift sector within New Zealand. 

With the new age of technology and increased demand on businesses to be compliant and fulfill the duties related to the supply of plant and equipment, there has been an increased demand for a national association to represent and advocate for the forklift industry within NZ.  "We are very excited to announce the establishment of the New Zealand Forklift Industry Association (NZFIA), a peak industry body for the forklift sector”, says Association President Rhys Walter.

The New Zealand Forklift Industry Association (NZFIA) will hold an open industry meeting in Auckland on the 10th April 2018, with the express intentions of presenting a new way forward for the industry body and to gain a better understanding about the needs of industry.

"We need to hear the views of people and companies operating within the industry, this will enable the organisation to plan and prioritise”, says Rhys.

The meeting will explain benefits of membership such as access to national and international industry events, industry specific insurance, Health and Safety systems, industry representation to interact with government agencies (eg. MBIE, Worksafe, Standards NZ), promotion of industry careers, products and services.

The NZFIA extends a very warm welcome to all forklift manufacturers, distributors, rental or lease companies, service providers and end users. The meeting will be held at the Sudima Hotel Auckland Airport on the 10th April 2018 from 10am. 

RSVP is required, for full information please download meeting information and format here.
