Industrial Truck Sales (NZ) Ltd (ITS Forklifts) 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 Forklifts) was created to import, market and distribute the range of TCM forklifts and associated products from Japan. Since inception, ITS Forklifts 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 Forklifts 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, we sit proudly in the market-place as one of the leading suppliers of materials handling equipment.

Samuel GohCM Enterprise
“You guys are amazing! Samuel Goh, General Manager here at CM Enterprise, we supply Best Quality Foods to Supermarkets nationwide. We had recently purchased a 2nd hand forklift Jungheinrich EFX413 through your territory manager James Green. I was thoroughly impressed with his service, passion and knowledge for forklifts. Prior to deciding on which forklift solutions to go with, we had met up with various companies. What won me over to ITS was the ease of chatting with James and his passion forklifts, understanding our needs without trying to 'sell us a product'. He visited our site, rackings understood limited space and need for tight aisle. Being in a supply chain industry supplying food to Pak n Save, New Worlds, Countdown and other independent supermarkets, great customer service/experience and after care support is important to us. We are very happy with our machine and the level of support shown by Kasun, Dupree, Kelvin and especially James. Thank you ITS forklifts.” - Samuel Goh, General Manager at CM Enterprise.

“At Suntory coffee, our aim is to roast quality coffee, across a number of brands, for a broad range of café and foodservice customers. We need to operate efficiently to deliver our customers the freshest coffee possible with a blend & roast profile that is specific to their needs. Installing a fleet of Jungheinrich machines was a great experience when we opened our new Roastery in East Tamaki. We have both counterbalanced and narrow aisle electric Jungheinrich machines, but the Reach Truck ETV 120 with special drive in racking modifications is our best solution for cost effective stacking and retrieval of high density raw materials and finished goods at high lift heights.” – says Chris Drury, Warehouse Manager at Suntory Coffee New Zealand

“We’ve owned our TCM FD25 since 1998. It had been working in a wreckers yard in Japan when a friend found it for us. We decided to bring it back with some other gear, and the rest as they say is history. We have found TCM as brand to be extremely reliable. Out with the old and in with the new! Thank you ITS Forklifts Team for upgrading us with the new TCM counterbalance forklift.” - says Richard Bowman, Owner / Director at Bowline Engineering.
