A forklift truck company specialising in the sales service and hire of forklifts and other materials handling equipment has moved into Huntingdon to be closer to its customers, announces Barford + Co, the St Neots based firm of Chartered Surveyors and Planning Consultants. 

Eastern Forklift Trucks, which has a large facility in Bury St Edmunds, is now operating from an industrial unit on 6 Clifton Road in Huntingdon, where many of its customers are based.

Paul Brierley, Managing Director of Eastern Forklift Trucks, said: “Wealready have a 10, 000 sq ft facility in Bury St Edmunds but having previously owned Genesis Fork Lift Trucks we know our customers in Huntingdon and St Ives like a really local presence.

“We felt we needed to be in the main industrial area in order to provide a really responsive service locally, keep customer costs down and be really visible to the local business community.

“We’ve invested £25k in improvements to the property and we are already beginning to see a return. We have some great staff running the operation and if customers would like to get in touch they can call us on 01480 272272 or email rob@easternflt.com”.

Howard Westgate is Associate Director at Barford + Co, he said: “We’re delighted to have been able to support Eastern Forklift Trucks with their plans to expand into Huntingdon. They’ve already made considerable improvements to the unit which really stands out now with their signage and branding and we look forward to seeing how the business develops in Huntingdon.

Eastern Forklift Trucks are official agents for Mitsubishi, Baumann and MaxTruck, three of the most successful and innovative manufacturers globally.
