Kempston - new distributor for Clark forklifts

When the world’s pioneer in the forklift sector partners with South Africa’s largest privately owned transport and related group of companies, clients can be assured of high-end quality products matched with outstanding customer service.

This is exactly what the South African supply chain sector can look forward to following a recent announcement that Kempston Material Handling is the new distributor of Clark Forklifts.

Given the history and reputation of both companies, the synergy between the two bodes well for a successful partnership.

The Clark name is synonymous with forklifts, being at the forefront of material handling advancements for decades. The reliability of the Clark machines has always been a strong point since they produced the first forklifts way back in 1922, which is why Clark machines are some of the oldest equipment in the market still running today in certain applications.

It’s presence in South Africa gets a substantial boost now that it is represented by Kempston Material Handling division. Speaking after the landmark announcement, Jonathan Cotterell of Kempston Group explained that the company is giving the Clark brand a new lease of life in South Africa.

“Clark has historically been a very strong player in the 4.5 to 8 ton space with excellent products at competitive prices, but in the past has not been strongly marketed in the high volume 1.8 – 3.3 ton market” he said adding that the Clark Forklift brand is in sound hands thanks to the support offered by the Kempston Group.

A comprehensive range of in-house finance, insurance, leasing, long and short-term rentals as well as spare parts stockholding, make Kempston the ideal partner for this ubiquitous machine range.
