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.

“We have recently taken delivery of a Jungheinrich EFG 320 EFG counterbalance forklift. We work around the clock so a smooth, reliable, efficient machine is vital to our success. The team and I are also enjoying the ease of charging very much – effortless! This model has a smaller footprint than our old machine, making it more user friendly in our tight indoors workspace. We appreciate the effort put in by the ITS Forklifts Team, and being supportive whenever we need them!” – says Junior Poaki, Warehouse team leader at George Weston Foods (GWF)

“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.

“During COVID-19 breakdown we’ve been extremely busy. Thanks to the addition of our new 7.0 ton counterbalance forklift TCM FD70 to the fleet, we can now better meet our growing demand. We have dealt with ITS for a number of years and appreciate the support and high-level service from the whole ITS team.”- Sam Chen, Supply and Logistics Manager at Brilliance Steel

“At Metro Performance Glass, we value safety the most, none more than in the production line. We have a fleet of different makes of forklifts mostly supplied by ITS Forklifts. In the last year we have installed a Jungheinrich EKS 208 Order Picking machine, complete with purpose designed and built Operator Work Platform. The platform is suitable for a maximum of two people for performing a variety of maintenance tasks around the factory. This means we can easily reach higher areas and ensure we operate in a safe and efficient manner at all times.”- Vaibhav Garg, Reliability Engineer at Metro Performance Glass
"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 Forklifts 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 Forklifts 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 Forklifts. 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 (ITS Forklifts) 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
