FLTA quality manager Lee Medway presents the audit compliance certificate to Ian Mounce, general manager of Bristol Forklifts.
Bristol Forklifts has been presented with the FLTA audit compliance certificate following a successful on-site assessment. Beginning in April 2017, the audit reviewed 100 criteria, including safety, health and environmental procedures.

"The process was very thorough, and we learnt a lot from the FLTA," says Ian Mounce, general manager of Bristol Forklifts. "The FLTA certificate will benefit us and our customers as it brings peace of mind and ensures a uniformity in the processes that we adhere to."

The audit presented Bristol Forklifts with the opportunity to enhance aspects of its operations, such as improving knowledge of gas storage and safety when working with dangerous substances.

"Bristol Forklifts were keen participants and fully recognised the benefits of the audit," says Lee Medway, quality manager at the FLTA.

Bristol Forklifts worked collaboratively with the association on all corrective actions specified by the audit. This included a joint effort in sourcing a subcontractor to conduct the testing of the spray booth extraction system. After overcoming this challenge, Bristol Forklifts was able to qualify as fully compliant.

Bristol Forklifts was acquired by Red Diamond Distribution (RDD), the UK national distributor for Mitsubishi forklifts, in 2018.
