There is a certain Mr Orange who has started investing in companies, specifically FLT. His brother sings a little.

i don't know if this is him. all we have been told is that their is a new company looking to invest in the UK forklift industry and some one who represents them have contacted us. If it is him i will let you know but we have not met them yet. They are keeping what they are up to a bit quite. They have told me that they are talking to around 20 companies in the UK not all will go through but if even half do that will be quite a large company. just wondered who is behind them

Yes they seem to be building a group up around the materials handling and plant hire business in the UK. How successful they will be time will only tell. it dose go to show if you have capital to invest there are some good opportunities in the UK Materials handling industry. This must be good for the industry as a hole there are now a couple of investment funds looking at this industry that will hope fully build groups to take on the big companies Like Barlow , brigs, Impact , Rushlift and the manufactures like Linde.
