Date: Category: Bennie Equipment News

Bennie Equipment are delighted to announce our 2nd acquisition of 2024 as South West Forklifts Ltd (SWF) based in Wiltshire joins the BENNIE family of companies.

South West Forklifts (SWF) are a leading provider of Material Handling Equipment in the region that share our values for providing great customer solutions with a personal level of service.

Bennie Equipment as an award winning and leading MHE provider in the UK continues a strategy of rapid growth through acquisitions, maintaining momentum following the recent acquisition of 4k Systems Ltd in January 2024.

Lee Hawkins, Managing Director of SWF was looking for a partner to help grow the business to the next level, and BENNIE were looking to continue our reach in the West of the UK and solidify our presence here.

As one of the largest Bobcat Doosan dealers in the UK with growth ambitions, BENNIE is on a mission to grow its MHE presence across the UK and the acquisition of South West Forklifts is the latest and marks our second milestone in this journey.

‌Given the huge synergies of both businesses it is very much business as usual as the partnership gets underway. Both BENNIE and SWF are absolutely committed to ensuring customers receive the same excellent levels of support and customer service. With this, over the next couple of months you will start to notice some of the BENNIE branding augmenting SWF’s own.

We look forward to continuing to deliver exceptional MHE solutions and continue to provide our customers with award winning services.
