TVH will again sponsor the UK Fork Lift Truck Association’s (FLTA) Awards for Excellence 2020
As was the case in 2019, TVH, a global player in the material handling, industrial and agricultural equipment industries, will be the sponsor of the Environment Award, or the "Environment Archie." The Awards for Excellence 2020 will take place on 21st March 2020 at the Hilton Metropole at the NEC Birmingham.
Every year, the FLTA Awards for Excellence recognises the sector’s brightest and best with rewards in 10 categories. In previous editions, TVH has been nominated and awarded, too.
“Our company has always been making efforts to reduce its environmental impact as much as possible,’’ explains Stephen Smallbone, General Manager Sales TVH UK LTD [on the right in the accompanying picture]. “When suitable alternatives are available, we avoid materials and methods that involve environmental or health risks. And that’s exactly what this award is about: rewarding progress in reducing emissions, working more efficiently or reducing the consumption of valuable resources.”
From small beginnings 50 years ago, Belgium-based TVH now has more than 6,700 employees worldwide, and a turnover of around €1.6B. It delivers more than 750,000 different parts a year to customers all over the globe.
It says that reducing its environmental impact, is high on its list of priorities. The company uses solar panels and sustainable packaging, for example, and engages to dispose of its waste in a sustainable way.
