Dalian Forklift Co Ltd's exclusive forklift and reach stacker dealer in India has just received its first forklift orders.

Chennai-based GMMCO Ltd formed Allied Equipment Division in June this year to represent Dalian forklifts and reach stackers in India and has announced orders for four three-tonne diesel forklifts from the Reliance group.

The forklifts are now working at Reliance Industries Ltd, in Jamnagar.

Rumit Dave, who staffs the new division, is optimistic about growth in India's ports and logistics and manufacturing sectors.

"We plan to sell around 100 forklift units in the next six months," he said.

GMMCO Ltd is a Caterpillar dealer in India and a part of the CK Birla Group Co, one of the "second largest Indian business groups", Dave said.

GMMCO has a network of 17 offices throughout India and more than 850 employees.
