MLA Holdings, a leading Australian forklift company, has expanded into the Newcastle, Hunter and Central Coast region of New South Wales with the purchase of two long-established forklift businesses.

The company has acquired Hunter Liftrucks and Inglis Equipment from owner Ray Inglis and the combined entities are now trading in the region as Hunter MLA.

Inglis started the Inglis Equipment forklift hire business in 1978, and the complementary forklift sales, parts and servicing business, Hunter Liftrucks, in 1985.

Over decades, the businesses have built strong reputations for being responsive to customer needs, selling and hiring only quality forklifts, and supplying the very best service and reliable spare parts.

Hunter Liftrucks was previously a Yale and Utilev dealer and also sells industrial sweepers and scrubbers along with warehouse racking.

"Hunter Liftrucks, Inglis Equipment and MLA are a perfect fit for the Newcastle, Hunter and Central Coast region," says Geoff Marshall, Sales Manager at Hunter MLA.

"Both Hunter Liftrucks and Inglis Equipment bring a strong local presence and a good understanding of the area’s business needs, and MLA has the experience and strength as the national distributor and rental provider of Mitsubishi Forklifts."

For MLA, the acquisition makes it easier to reach customers in the Newcastle, Hunter and Central Coast region and provides synergies for the established branch structure and Sydney head office.
