Berkshire, United Kingdom The Fork Lift Truck Association has recently reinforced its board with the addition of new member Adam Hughes, managing director of Spartan Forklifts. Having entered the materials handling industry as a salesman, before becoming a depot manager, Hughes made the decision to step out on his own and set up Spartan Forklifts in 2009. In his position as an FLTA Board member, Hughes hopes to provide fresh insights based on his own experience. "As a local dealership that is younger than most, we may have a different perspective when perhaps compared to larger companies that have been established for many years. If I can provide any kind of new idea or suggestion that assists the Association in its aims, helps other dealerships like mine, and supports the continuation of high standards, I've done my job," he explains.
