About Us

How we do it

Our company has continued to grow by adhering to our philosophy of offering first class customer service

Serving You Since 1974

Since our inception in 1974, we’ve earned a trusted reputation as the UK’s quality leader in forklift truck attachments and material handling solutions.

About Us 

Founded in Rochester by our two Directors, John Cufley and Robert Taylor, Contact Attachments was the very first forklift truck attachment manufacturer in the UK to develop a range of mechanical forklift attachments with prodiucts such as mechanical scoops, forklift fork extensions, and forklift lifting jibs.

The success of our early product range enabled us to branch out into the manufacturing of automatic specialised palletising and dispenser products, winning major contracts with Cadbury’s, Tate & Lyle, Johnsons Polish, Tayto Crisps, and Hellman’s Mayonnaise.

Today, we’re proud to offer a wide range of standard and bespoke material handling solutions, working with businesses of all shapes and sizes across the UK and overseas.  

Our History

In the 1980s, we made the commercial decision to focus entirely on forklift truck attachments and material handling solutions. We placed significant investment in enhancing our in-house capabilities and production facility and moved to larger premises in Newtown, Mid Wales.

Present Time

Contact Attachments has grown to become a leading employer, thanks to the continued guidance of our senior leadership team, and under the directorial and managerial leaderships of the late and much respected Des Phillips and John Cufley – both of whom made a lasting impact on the way we operate today. Without the hierarchy of job titles, our team are respected, empowered, and supported in their roles – sharing an overall vision to provide first-class service each, and every, time. 

Since our inception in 1974, we have grown our Company to become "The Quality Leader in Forklift Truck Attachments" and have – along the way – acquired an enviable reputation within the industry, of which we are rightly proud. Known throughout the industry as 'Contact Attachments' the decision was made to change our company trading name officially to 'Contact Attachments Ltd' in 2008.

Our Future

From our position as one of the first forklift truck attachment manufacturers in the UK, our company has continued to grow and prosper by adhering to our philosophy of offering first-class customer service, being on-hand to offer technical help and guidance when needed, and manufacturing a high-quality product that is competitively priced within the market. Exciting new opportunities in the overseas market have also further helped develop the Contact brand beyond the UK shores.

We remain committed to serving the material handling industry, committed to maintaining our reputation as premier solutions providers, and above all committed to providing our industry with a professional, experienced, and reliable source to turn to when it comes to any particular material handling problem.
