The Outline of UniCarriers

The heritage of UniCarriers forklifts begins when the first Nissan Forklift rolled off the assembly line at Nissan Motor’s Totsuka Plant on August 25, 1957. Since its debut, Nissan Forklift had been a successful forklift brand under Nissan group, recognized as a leading provider of high performance material handling products. Making use of the advanced technologies derived from automotive industry, the key brand message was “keep the customers’ operation on the move.”

To expand the presence in the forklift industry even further, Nissan Forklift joined UniCarriers group in 2012 and renamed the brand to UniCarriers in 2015.

Though the brand is new, the core essence remains the same as Nissan Forklift – “keeping the customers’ operation on the move.” Thus, we are now extending this message with the addition of new product ranges, such as large forklifts and 1.5 to 3.5 ton range of electric forklifts to respond to the diversified requirements from the customers.

Our products have been supplied from the production bases in Japan, U.S., China, Spain and Sweden. At all locations, products have been strictly checked to assure quality before delivering to our sales networks in the global markets covering each continent in the world. Our sales networks have professional engineers to provide quality service to support your operation on the move.
