What's happening at Nissan?
Does anyone know what's going on with Nissan in the UK? First Impact jump and no credible dealer wants to take on the product, now it seems that Carrylift are about to do the same!

What will HFT, South Wales and Lift West do now as they'll be the only dealers selling any Nissans?

Rumour has it that Nissan UK are about to merge their Materials Handling business with some other company. They did have strong relationships with Mitsubishi at one time but I think that has cooled in recent times.

At let are Nissan's only route they will concentrate on smaller trucks and warehouse trucks, trucks with a power out put over 56kw will be dropped Nissan wont want to spend money on R&D to bring trucks up to date to meet new emissions,many Asian manufactures will not want to invest the capital needed to bring trucks up to date for new emissions.This will see a major change in trucks from 6,000kg - 8,000kg

From what I hear, Nissan is in complete meltdown! No management, no support, no idea and soon no dealers!

just might be Nissan want to concentrate on cars and let the fork lift side go. Nissan wont want another company coming in to use there name. Atlet will take over no dealers to pay of

The word on the street is that Carrylift are going with Korea , Nissan are going to to stay with the Swedes with a Dealer Nettwork in meltdown , the new gen Nissan is poor anyway. Impact jumped before they were pushed. Who will Rushlift BUY NEXT ? Its all going on UP NORTH......

Barlow need Hyster or they might as well sell it to Briggs, no chance ref Doosan........ Ive already told you the new DOOSAN Dealer in LANCS and SCOTLAND......... Rushlift cant buy CarryLift cos there is not enough EQUITY left in their hire fleet to do a sale and lease back. Plus Rushlift dont have the cash to buy them from their own balance sheet......... GET WITH THE PROGRAMME.

The worst kept secret in the industry it seems... Carrylift are going with Doosan. Who's going to go next? Anyone know what's going on with the remaining dealers down south? More to the point, would anyone want anything to do with them?

Business levals in yorkshire appear to be shared out between
linde and [url removed] / Toytown doing the fleet deals , Briggs not at the races yet. Barlow still hanging on to loyal customer base , Forkway picking up the scraps over in Donny area. Impact doing JACK. The area needs NEW BLOOD with only a few salesmen GOT THE GIFT..........
