Get to know us better…

Demetriades Handling UK Ltd is a subsidiary of the Demetriades Group based in Cyprus. The group started out as an importer and supplier of used forklifts — sourcing reliable equipment from all over Europe. The group has grown substantially and diversified into specialist supply, support and manufacturing, with a strong focus on both domestic and international markets.

 

Demetriades Handling UKbeganits operations back in 2001. Due to our group’s dominant position in the Cyprus domestic market, our initial focus was on forklift spare parts. Gradually we began buying and refurbishing used forklifts and material handling equipment — and selling them at very competitive prices.

 

Based just outside the M25 in Essex, we have now established ourselves as a powerful force in the UK material handling market, with a reputation for great prices, top-class technical service, and straight talking.  And our focus is still on value-for-money used forklifts and material handling equipment of every type – along with well-priced spare parts.
