Local News Story
The Aisle-Master brand will be added to AAL's product range.
Adaptalift Hyster has bought Wholesale Materials Handling, formerly known as Nichiyu Forklifts Australia, with effect from 15 January 2015.

The deal adds Fimap and Aisle-Master brands to AAL’s product range, which includes Hyster and Combilift.

Daniel Ng, marketing manager, tells News the acquisition involves taking over the company’s two major branches in Huntingwood, NSW and in Dandenong, Victoria. "The Huntingwood location will remain; however, staff from the Dandenong office will relocate to our Adaptalift office in Springvale," he says.

All branches and staff will fall under the Adaptalift name, he adds.

Peter Whiffen, MD of AAL, says Wholesale Materials Handling is a mature business that is a great strategic fit.

"The combination of the two businesses will further strengthen (AAL’s) position in the marketplace, continuing to focus on providing our customers with further materials handling solutions."
