Combilift wins two awards for excellence in the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) Awards in London.

Taking out the award in the Innovation Category for the second time, the Irish forklift manufacturer was recognised for its new Rough Terrain RT forklift.

In addition, the company’s Combi-CB model was awarded the "Victor Ludorum" prize, billed by the FLTA as the ultimate ‘winner of winners’ in the event's 18-year history.

A special one-off category, the Victor Ludorum award was chosen from all previous winning Environment, Ergonomics, Safety and Innovation entries.

Combilift received a unique gold plated "Archie" trophy created in commemoration of the Association’s 40th year.

"This very special award will naturally have pride of place in our awards cabinet," Combilift MD Martin McVicar said.

In 2009, it was the Combi-CB compact multi-directional counterbalance which was awarded in the FLTA’s Innovation category.

Designed for operations handling a mix of both palletised and long loads, the Combi-CB has since become one of Combilift’s best-selling models.

"Innovation and substantial investment in R&D have been our bywords since we established Combilift and we are delighted that this has once again been recognised," McVicar says.

"To have the Combi-CB acknowledged by our peers in the materials handling sector as having made ‘the most outstanding contribution to the industry since the awards began’ is the ultimate tribute."
