The finals of the national forklift competition held recently at Melbourne Materials Handling saw the male and female titles won by Michael Eden and Anita Maliu, both of Woolworths.
The field of 19 finalists from Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland included last year's champions, Angela Molloy and Trevor Webb, with Molloy coming a close second this year.
The competition was one of the highlights of the show, which was held in conjunction with Safety in Action, and an expo on carbon reduction and trading.
According to the organiser, there were 10,290 visitors, a drop of 10% on last year.
