Who is UniCarriers?

The new name of Nissan Forklift: UnicarrersUniCarriers (formerly Nissan Forklift) might appear to be a new brand name emerging in the forklift market however; the product actually dates back to the very first forklift manufactured in Japan during the 1940’s. UniCarriers is comprised of the two heavy weight Japanese forklift manufacturers – Nissan Forklift and TCM. The company united to strengthen Japan’s forklift brand utilising the experiences and strengths of both manufacturers.

UniCarriers is available through Lencrow Materials Handling who offer sales, services and support for the entire range of products. UniCarriers offer a comprehensive range of internal combustion forklifts with capacities starting from 1000kg right up to 43,000kg models (1t – 43t). Premium models feature electronic engine management system technology. The electronic technology monitors and manages the forklift’s fuel economy as well its speed controls, automated tilt levelling and includes a built-in weight scale. UniCarriers are at the cutting edge of design and technology consistently delivering quality products applying years of experience and research in forklift manufacturing.

Nissan Forklift acquired Atlet, a warehouse equipment manufacturing company based in Sweden, in 2007. Atlet is known for their range of electric powered warehouse products with ergonomic solutions. The business merger marked the production of superior reach trucks and specialised warehousing equipment that features leading design and technology using superior components. UniCarriers in addition to this range manufacture 3 and 4 wheel forklifts covering the needs of modern warehouses and handling applications.

UniCarriers is synonymous with Nissan Forklift and TCM – two forklift brands that the Australian market has known and used for years. Unicarriers products include full parts and labour warranties backed with factory support on all its products.

Lencrow Materials Handling has been involved in the Australian forklift industry for nearly 4 solid decades. The company was established in 1976 and supplies the largest independent range of materials handling equipment in Australia. The family owned operation has expanded its services over 3 generations and offers a holistic range of solution based services nationwide.

Lencrow’s own hire fleet consists of over 2,500 units nationwide and the company’s principle motto is;

“We do not sell products that we would not use in our own hire fleet, we know the costs associated with maintaining forklifts, and supplying quality and supported products to Australian business is most important to us”

Spare parts supply, distribution, availability and support are often overlooked when materials handling products are purchased in Australia. Every product bought and used in the country will require servicing and repairs during ownership. UniCarriers is guaranteed to remain supported in Australia backed with Lencrow Materials Handling’s 100% after sales services and support. Supported products like this that offer genuine factory backed parts at reduced prices allow owners to maintain optimum engine performance for the life of their equipment.

Nissan Forklift the brand that is known and trusted by Australian forklift owners and operators will continue to exist – just not in the familiar branding that we know now. UniCarriers range offer true value for money encompassing economy through to luxury – a model up or down to suit the varied handling applications across a range of industries. Australia can expect the same level of quality, attention to detail with that familiar flare across the board.

UniCarriers – it may look new – the driving experience and performance you remember remains the same.
