Press Release

Gibbs will head up a team of five engineers exclusively supplying FTAs range of services for warehouses and mechanical handling equipment, including comprehensive racking inspections and reports, lift equipment inspections and fork truck inspections.

Peter Gibbs says, We are focussing FTAs services in this area and feel that there is enormous potential for growth. Health and safety requirements are constantly becoming tighter, and enforcement becoming more demanding. FTA inspections, for both premises and equipment, provide site operators with peace of mind and confidence that they are safe and sound and legally compliant.

I am very happy to be am able to draw on FTAs 40 plus years of experience with its Vehicle Inspection Service, and the sort of help we can offer in the warehousing and MHE sector is a natural development of our work with the industry in supporting and advising on workshops, maintenance regimes and overall vehicle management.

Gibbs is based in Sussex and operates out of FTAs Tunbridge Wells head office, reporting to Richard White, General Manager, Sales. However, his responsibility is national.
