Calor has been awarded Supplier of the Year at the UK Material Handling Association (UKMHA) Awards for Excellence – The Archies. Chosen by the membership of UKMHA for the quality of its support for the industry, the Award was presented at a special evening held at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham.
The Archies celebrates the best and brightest in the forklift industry, recognising teams and individuals that have innovated, raised standards and helped forklift truck operators work more effectively and safely.
The Archie was awarded to Calor for delivering the highest quality of services and products over the course of the year, as voted for by the UKMHA’s members.
With a commitment to safety and best practice, Calor continued to set the standard in 2022 by regularly sharing safety guidance, videos, and other safety training materials for the forklift truck industry through its own channels.
Stuart Viney, National Account Manager for FLTs at Calor, said: I’m delighted and incredibly proud of the Calor FLT team for achieving this accolade from the UKMHA. We have a fantastic group of colleagues at Calor who are constantly innovating and pushing for the highest standards in our industry, so it’s great to be recognised for that.”
As part of its commitment to a sustainable future, Calor has pledged to offer 100% renewable energy solutions to all customers by 2040. In 2018, it introduced Futuria Liquid Gas (previously BioLPG) – a sustainable fuel made from a blend of waste, residues, and sustainably sourced materials.
Using a mix of 40% Futuria Liquid Gas and 60% conventional LPG, FLT businesses can reduce carbon emissions by up to 48% (kgCO2e/kWh) compared to using diesel and 33% when compared to conventional LPG.
