Amvar Handling Solutions had to undergo a rigorous 100-point compliance audit completed by the fork lift industry’s lead body for safety and accountability.  The audits are aimed to ensure consistently high standards and compliance across all areas of the business operations including quality management, health and safety, environmental, fire regulations, risk management and all relevant legislation.

Officially receiving the certification this week, Amvar’s Operations Manager, Darren Carless had this to say, “There are hundreds of forklift truck dealers throughout the UK, so we were really pleased to be leading the way and being among the first to complete the audit. We strongly believe in setting and maintaining the highest standards throughout our business”.

According to the FLTA the compliance system has been developed by the industry for the industry and to give businesses the confidence that FLTA member dealers adhere to the highest standards, thereby avoiding the risk of any weak link in the supply chain of traceability and accountability.

Amvar Handling Solutions is an authorised dealer for several major brands including TCM forklifts and Flexi-Truck
