The Clark Forklift brand
is in sound hands.

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. Kempston Material Handling is the new distributor of Clark Forklifts.

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.

Kempston Material Handling head office based in Durban, but with branches in Johannesburg, Cape Town and dealer network throughout South Africa, will be looking to add sale in this popular segment, helped by Clark’s introduction of the GTS range. Says Kempston’s Grant Brehany, “Clark are giving us robust and well-specced machines in the form of the GTS range. The product has been successfully running in other markets overseas for a few years so is tried and tested, and we’re excited about offering it to South African clients”.
