About Us



Bill Bennett Engineering Ltd was established in 1969.  The truck mounted forklift connection started back in the early 1980's while a local village friend Jim Wilkie started importing the Kooi Aap, the first truck-mounted forklift.  The advantages of using a truck mounted forklift were clear even in these early years.

In 1991, Bill Bennett Engineering Ltd started to import the Kooi Aap range.  A sales force and demonstration team promoted the use of truck mounted forklifts.  Over the years the truck mounted forklift concept developed and began to be a commonly used solution in the transport and logistics industry.


Having been involved with the truck mounted forklift industry from the concept stage, Bill Bennett Engineering developed all the services and knowledge to support this type of equipment.  This knowledge has benefited many logistic operations by helping the design of transport systems using truck mounted forklifts.

At the end of 2003 the company became the UK importer for the Palfinger Crayler range of truck mounted forklifts.  This opened a new opportunity to work with the biggest name in truck mounted unloading systems.  A combination of market knowledge and high quality design and engineering is forming the leading edge in truck mounted forklifts.
