2018 proved to be a big year for MLA Holdings Pty Ltd (MLA). Already one of Australia’s most established and renowned forklift suppliers, last year the company expanded not just to one market, but four: Gold Coast, Newcastle, Central Coast and the Hunter Region.
The first of these markets was the Gold Coast, where MLA purchased local business Classic Forklifts, which began trading as Classic MLA from July 2018.

“Classic Forklifts and MLA are a perfect fit for the Gold Coast,” said Richard Smith, Business Development Manager at Classic MLA. “Classic brings a strong local presence and a good understanding of Gold Coast business needs, and MLA has the experience and strength as the national distributor of Mitsubishi Forklifts.”MLA Continues To Expand
Just a few short months later, in November 2018, MLA announced their expansion into the Newcastle, Hunter and Central Coast region with the purchase of two long-established forklift businesses.
The acquisition of Hunter Liftrucks and Inglis Equipment from owner Ray Inglis took effect November 1st, and the combined entities began trading in the region as Hunter MLA.

“Hunter Liftrucks, Inglis Equipment and MLA are a perfect combination for the Newcastle, Hunter and Central Coast Region,” said Geoff Marshall, Sales Manager at Hunter MLA.
“Both Hunter Liftrucks and Inglis Equipment bring a strong local presence and a good understanding of the area’s business needs, and MLA has the experience and strength as the national distributor and rental provider of Mitsubishi Forklifts.”
Overall, local customers will deal with the same friendly and professional teams they have always known, while gaining access to a wider range of products and services.
