New chairman for FLAT
Newbury, United Kingdom

The Fork Lift Apprentices Trust (or FLAT Fund) has welcomed a new chairman, Derek Anderson of Manbat Industrial Power Systems.
Anderson has worked in the forklift industry for more than 30 years and has been an FLTA board member for four. He initially started life as a battery engineer before founding the highly successful PowerCell in 1996 with his wife, Ingrid.
Speaking after his appointment, Anderson expressed the hope that the Flat Fund can help overcome some of the hurdles that may prevent employers from appreciating the obvious benefits of hiring an apprentice.
The FLAT Fund is a registered charity established in 2008 as a joint initiative by the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) and British Industrial Truck Association (BITA).
