Permatt Forklift Trucks Our History

“Permatt Forklift Trucks Ltd was established in 1981 by my father. He was the first forklift truck service engineer in the North East and had over 40 years’ experience in this field before retirement in 1997.


My objective is to continue this growth and to provide our current and potential customers with a continuously improving quality of service in all areas of the Material Handling Industry.”
