TVH, a world leader in the field of spare parts for lift trucks, industrial vehicles, construction machinery and agricultural tractors, has again sponsored the Fork Lift Truck Association’s (FLTA) Awards for Excellence, the most prestigious annual event in the material handling industry. As was the case last time, the global parts specialist is sponsoring the Environment Award, or the ‘Environment Archie’. And this time, TVH was part of the jury as well.
Every year, the FLTA Awards for Excellence recognises the sector’s brightest and best with rewards in 10 categories. It’s a festive tribute to the companies, teams and individuals who have devoted themselves to innovation and improvement. In previous editions, TVH has been nominated and awarded, too.
Sponsor of the Environment Award
TVH consciously chooses to sponsor the Environment Award, which was won by JCB and its first electric telehandler. Corporate social responsibility, including reducing its environmental impact, is high on TVH’s list of priorities. The company uses solar panels and sustainable packaging, for example, and engages to dispose of its waste in a sustainable way.
Part of the jury
Representing TVH in this year’s jury was Graham Hughes, National Account Manager at TVH UK Ltd. He joined the company in 2003. “I’ve seen the company grow and have grown with it,” he says. “I’m proud of what I do because I’m proud of TVH – it’s a pleasure to represent such a phenomenon. As a jury member, I hope to have inspired and helped others learn from us, and maybe learn a few new things myself.”
Awards for Excellence 2020
The latest of the FLTA Awards was actually the 2020 edition that was previously postponed due to the pandemic. The event was held online via live-stream – for the first time – on Saturday 10 April. The video will be available online at a later date.
