Established in 1986, Hitec Lift Trucks Ltd was founded by two guys in overalls who had an uncharacteristically good idea; to locally offer a fully comprehensive range of services and products to suit almost anyone’s materials handling requirements.
Over the years, they sourced not only a broad range of long and short term hire equipment, but also a handpicked team of expert engineers. With a wealth of experience and decades of knowledge at their disposal, Hitec continued to grow, and eventually its two founders swapped their overalls and workshop for shirts and a nice office.
In 2018 Hitec’s efforts were rewarded as they were acquired by a very impressive business by the name of Briggs Equipment UK Ltd. This meant that Hitec’s already impressive fleet of materials handling equipment was bolstered by the exceptional resources available through Briggs. This included, but wasn’t limited to, the outstanding Hyster range.
With the backing of Briggs, Hitec have continued to go from strength to strength, expanding our team, fleet and community of loyal customers.
