Industrial Truck Sales
Industrial Truck Sales (NZ) Ltd (ITS) was established in 1988 by Fowlers Machinery Ltd and Auckland Forktruck Hire.
These two Companies each have in excess of forty-five years’ experience in the materials handling industry. Industrial Truck Sales (ITS) was created to import, market and distribute the range of TCM forklifts and associated products from Japan. Since inception, ITS has enjoyed considerable growth, to the point where the TCM and ITS names are nationally recognized and are synonymous with superior product and support.
Later in 1997, ITS included the renowned Jungheinrich Forklift Trucks of materials handling equipment to its Distributor Network. This initiative has been warmly received in the New Zealand market. Presently, with the complimentary mix of robust Japanese and sophisticated German products, Industrial Truck Sales (ITS) sits proudly in the market-place as one of the leading suppliers of materials handling equipment.
"Pipemakers import, manufacture and distribute PVC pipes and components. Our product is lightweight but generally bulky and wide. Our previous machine was a higher capacity forklift with fixed wide carriage, and was larger than we needed. ITS have improved our pipe handling with a more compact TCM forklift coupled to a hydraulically operated Wide Opening Fork Positioner attachment. The fork positioner can open out to balance our wide loads as well as reducing the fork spread to handle standard pallets, all from the comfort of the driver’s seat. Being more maneuverable, the TCM is more efficient and saves us money as the smaller capacity forklift is less expensive to run. Additionally, the reliability of this truck and ITS servicing are second to none. A great result all round.”- Bryan, Pipemakers NZ.

“Our warehouse utilises a fleet of different makes of forklift, including a couple of Jungheinrich Electric Reach Trucks rented from ITS. I find our Jungheinrich ETV Reach Truck extremely smooth and easy to operate due to the conventionally laid out controls. The addition of scales and camera with colour monitor for easy retrieval of high loads, takes safety and productivity to a level above our other machines. We have also found the machine to be very energy efficient, requiring less regular recharging of the battery. Industrial Truck Sales stands out for its servicing capability. The team is always willing to help, very professional, and exhibit a willingness to work through our requests – overall a great experience!" – David, Forman Building Systems
