UniCarriers Forklifts

UniCarriers Forklift was formed with the merging of TCM into Nissan Forklift Corporation and the renaming of Nissan as UniCarriers. The new company was established in order to assume the role of forklift industry leader and to compete more aggressively in a changing material handling environment.

The Integration of Four Brands to Form UniCarriers Corporation

Through the integration of TCM, Nissan Forklift, Barrett, and Atlet, UniCarriers Corporation offers the market over a century’s worth of combined experience, and product value that has long been considered among the best in the industry.

  • Nissan Forklift is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high performance material handling equipment, offering a full range of forklifts for your logistics operation.
  • Barrett Electric Lifts is one of the oldest and most recognized manufacturers of electric narrow aisle forklifts, pallet trucks and jacks.
  • Atlet is one of Europe’s leading forklift manufacturers and material handling experts, committed to improving the profitability of your material handling.
  • TCM is a pioneer in developing and manufacturing sturdy, extremely durable forklifts that have an excellent reputation among users for manoeuvrability and reliability.

With our merger, forklifts will no longer be just a peripheral business unit within a broader automotive company. We will be able to focus on what we do best – forklifts. Forklift trucks will be our sole business. This focus allows us to rethink our business model to bring customers smarter logistics solutions faster. With forklifts as our primary focus, we’re revisiting our business model and putting customers front and center. Our customer-centric approach will define everything we do from product development to service delivery.

Despite changing from Nissan Forklift to UniCarriers Forklifts, you can count on several constants:

  • Our Commitment to Excellence
    We may have a new name, but our passionate people, tried-and-true high-quality processes and best-in-class products remain the same—and will only get better.
  • Our Belief in True Partnership
    Our tenacious attitude, collaborative approach and innovative spirit will continue to define us. We’re as driven as ever to find new, creative ways to partner with suppliers, customers and dealers on what will prove to be a mutually beneficial growth trajectory.
  • Our Commitment to Strengthening our Dealer Partners
    Developing and supporting our network of exceptional Dealers—through comprehensive, industry-leading technical support and training—to help Dealers achieve business efficiencies and better service Customers.
  • Our Pledge to Protect the Environment
    Operating, and helping our customers operate, as green companies remains an imperative.

Most importantly, we hold firm our belief that your success is our success. We’re deeply committed to making this transition successful—while making it easier for you in the process. We look forward to taking our first leap forward with your business as UniCarriers.

The long term vision of UniCarriers is “Challenge for Excellence”. From production to sales, domestic to global, UniCarriers aims for “Excellence” in every area of the forklift business.
