The Fork Lift Truck Association announces finalists for its Awards for Excellence 2010

The Fork Lift Truck Association has officially announced its list of finalists for the Fork Lift Truck Association Awards for Excellence 2010.

The FLTA Awards has always been a showcase of the highest achievers in the industry… and this year is no exception. 20 nominations have been made, and each of these will vie to earn an Archie – long recognised as the most prestigious award in the materials handling sphere.

Chief executive of the FLTA David Ellison says: ""The finalists in this year’s Awards are all companies that have continued to innovate and strive for progress despite this year’s difficult trading conditions.
"It is therefore all the more important that people vote, to recognise efforts of these companies, and to determine who is most deserving of these Awards."
Voting for Awards 2010 is now open. The voting will take place exclusively online, allowing the FLTA to ensure the legality of each submission. Just visit the Awards section of the FLTA website at www.fork-truck.org.uk/awards to find information on the finalists and instructions on how to cast your vote online. The last day of voting is Thursday 31st December 2009.
