TCM Forklifts by UniCarriers


TCM is an outstanding world manufacturer of forklifts, backed by over 50 years of accumulated experience in the industry. Their ongoing technology advances continue to bring lower operating costs and increased productivity to the materials handling market.

The UniCarriers Group was created in 2011 from the mergers of Nissan and TCM.
The company, headquartered in Tokyo with branches in Europe, America and Asia, is a global developer and manufacturer of industrial trucks and offers solutions with load capacities from 350 to 10,000 kg.

TCM forklifts are dependable, hard working and range from 1 ton up to container handlers.
Their machines are continually refined and upgraded to meet the ever-changing requirements of customers.
Great features include:
  • Improved manoeuvrability
  • High powered engines for speedy loading
  • Reduced emissions (diesel, gasoline and LPG)
  • Enhanced operator comfort
  • Power-assisted brakes
  • Wide-view masts
  • Suitable for harsh workplaces
  • Easy maintenance
Battery powered forklifts are increasingly important providing lower emissions and a cleaner environment. Three-wheelers are extremely manoeuvrable enabling quick and easy material handling within very confined or aseptic workplaces such as food-processing plants.
