The company, previously run by managing director David Clayton, ran into cash flow problems due to "non-payment for ordered goods by customers".
Clayton tells Forkliftaction.com News
that the company had two major orders cancelled without payment as a result of the economic downturn, leaving Forklifts Australia stuck with the stock.
According to the appointed administrator, Meertens, the company has an annual turnover of AUD4.3 million and includes an existing rental fleet of 62 units, comprising new and used forklifts and walkie stackers.
Other dealerships and agencies are available as part of the sale including the complete Karcher commercial/industrial product range along with WWP, Heli, Feeler and Hyundai products.
