Civil | Military | Logistics

Aeronautics is a demanding field that warrants equipment as innovative as the industry itself. For years, Manitou has designed equipment dedicated to aircraft maintenance and aeronautical logistics. Operators can easily manoeuvre Manitou machines around obstacles and reach high areas (up to 42 meters of working height). Plus, these can even undertake precision work and aircraft maintenance with ease.

What’s more, your investment goes further thanks to Manitou’s multifaceted and interchangeable attachments.


Renovation | Roofing | And More

For over 50 years, Manitou has designed material handling equipment for construction professionals. As market leaders, they adapt to changes in the industry to improve your productivity, time and labour needs – no matter your field of application. Manitou’s versatile solutions support craftspeople and entrepreneurs in all their tasks. Whether working on uneven terrain, preparing, laying or maintaining, their machines have you covered.

ALL construction specialists rely on Manitou machines to operate efficiently – both on and offsite.


Reliable | Robust | High-Performing

Manitou is the world leader in rough terrain material handling. Working in unstable conditions makes them suitable for defence and security players. Air transportable, Manitou machines can be shipped by air to the four corners of the globe – making them a strategic partner for the army. Optimal for logistical operations, aeronautical maintenance, humanitarian work and much more.

Thanks to Manitou, these operations can take place whatever the weather – and whatever the state and inclination of the terrain.


Clean | Optimal | Manouvrable

Manitou offers machines designed for professionals in the environmental and renewable energy sectors. Its pressurised cabins are greatly appreciated when working in dusty environments or the presence of gas. Better still, Manitou’s versatile machines and attachments are suitable for handling neutral or hazardous waste. Whether it be plastics, glass, chemicals, inert waste, vegetable waste, and much more.

Fulfil productivity requirements for the waste recovery, renewable energy and water treatment sectors.


Safety | Services | Support

Working in mines – whether opencast or underground – involves many accident-generating factors. Miners face noise, heat, dust, gas, confined spaces . . . the list goes on. Therefore, it’s essential to adopt material handling solutions dedicated to mining. For over 20 years, Manitou has understood the issues miners face. That’s why Manitou provides the ergonomics, visibility and accessibility necessary for your safety.

Opting for a Manitou machine sees you benefit from safe and reliable solutions that serve to boost your productivity.

Oil & Gas

Efficient | Safe | Secure

The oil and gas industry is an exceptionally demanding sector. Employees often work in cramped and dangerous environments, sometimes in intense weather conditions too. In such difficult situations, they must be equipped with suitable handling equipment. Yet, you needn’t choose between safety and speed of execution – with Manitou’s machines, you benefit from both. Move and handle heavy and bulky loads without taking risks.

Indispensable for routine logistical operations and infrastructure maintenance, Manitou machines provide precision and speed of execution in complete safety.

What our clients say

We are very pleased with the change from an engine to an electric fleet. The trucks have been well received by our operators as they are comfortable and quiet to drive and give excellent protection from the elements. We even have the option and flexibility to use spare batteries and a simple battery change system if we ever want to work back to back shifts in the future. Locators also design, supply and install all types of racking and storage systems. They reconfigured the CooperVision warehouse for narrow aisle operation which increases the storage density and pallet locations. Locators supplied Aisle-Master articulated forklifts to work in this area.

Coopervision, Hamble

We have worked with Locators for nearly 20 years. We are confident they can always make the best use of the space we have available and provide us with forklifts that are well suited for the long loads and other stock we have to move.

Colin Macgregor
Director, Y Goldberg

Every time we look at an application, Locators approach it like a blank canvas and always recommend the best equipment for our business. Locators have proved themselves as a very reliable and proactive service provider by keeping our trucks working and our fleet costs as low as possible.

Adam Conrad
Group Transport Manager for Covers

Being able to work with one supplier for storage and materials handling has been a benefit to us. Locators managed the complete installation and ensured the correct materials handling equipment was specified for their design. They also service and maintain all of the equipment they have supplied and offer a rack inspection service to make sure our warehouse remains a safe working environment. We are very happy with our new facility and we believe we have made the best use of the available space.

Marc Congdon
Engineering Manager, Costa

We purchased our first Toyota forklift from Locators 14 years ago for our farm. This truck has been very reliable and is still in service so we had no hesitation in deciding to purchase another Toyota machine. Locators recommended an electric forklift for our machinery depot as it is very quiet, has low running costs and does not create any pollution, making it ideal for working both inside and outside. Our operators are very pleased with our new Toyota truck and our business is very happy to be operating a forklift that has such a low impact on the environment.

Ed Smales
Director, NFFM

Locators installed the new racking system within a tight timeframe while our business was fully operational. They have provided us with a facility that has a similar storage capacity and reduced the size of our forklift fleet allowing us to lease one building instead of two. We are very happy with the outcome.

Paul Bickell
Nippon Express

Locators gave us the benefit of working with just one supplier for all of the storage and materials handling requirements of this project. By mixing 3 and 4 wheel trucks from the same model range, we have gained extra pallet locations and have the option to battery change between them and work multi-shift in the future. I was initially sceptical that electric trucks could replace LPG, but I am very pleased with the successful outcome of this project.

Mark Davis
Logistics Supervisor for Hall & Woodhouse brewery

It is a great benefit to us that we have a single source supplier who understands the needs of our business. This saves us time, improves efficiency and ultimately reduces cost.
