The complete TVH Group is joining IPAF, with the TVH headquarters in Belgium as the main IPAF member and 18 other TVH companies in 15 countries holding IPAF group membership.

The Thermote & Vanhalst (TVH) Group was established in 1969 and has built a reputation as a dealer/distributor for forklift trucks, aerial work platforms and industrial in-plant vehicles. It operates across all continents, with more than 20,000 customers in more than 160 countries.

TVH director of business development Kristof Coudenys said: “As a result of the expansion of our rental activities and the growing sales of aerial platform parts, we are convinced that our IPAF membership will further show the commitment that TVH has in the international aerial world. With this message, we underline our image as a determined and consistent supplier, whose focus on safety and quality in all services and products is present on a daily basis.”

“We are extremely pleased that an internationally established company such as TVH is becoming an IPAF member and signalling commitment to and support of our safety initiatives and training programmes,” said Hans Aarse, IPAF’s representative in the Benelux.
