Impact Handling acquired Macbrown Fork Truck Services Ltd in December 2017. With the addition of Macbrown, Impact now operates thirteen branch locations across the UK and Ireland, alongside its seven dedicated dealer sites, supported by a workforce of over 200 mobile technicians who maintain more than 10,000 customer machines.

Macbrown will have the full support of Impact’s nationwide capability and will now have access to their full premium brand portfolio, led by the acclaimed Cat® Lift Trucks range of material handling and warehouse equipment.

The site based in Ossett near Wakefield, will continue as an Impact branch location with Macbrown’s existing long-serving and highly experienced team remaining with the business to provide full sales, maintenance, repair, training and short term rental services.

Macbrown has been supporting customers materials handing needs throughout West Yorkshire and beyond for over 27 years. The combination of our highly trained and experienced mobile Field Service Engineers, purpose-built well-equipped workshop and repair facility and our extensive products and resources means we can guarantee a prompt, efficient and cost effective solution to all your materials handling requirements.

Located less than a mile from the M1 and close to the M1/M62 motorway crossroad, thus providing excellent access to all areas ensuring you benefit fully from our excellent service support.


We appreciate that our long term future depends not only on providing 1st class equipment, service and advice but also on developing long term relationships with our customers. To do so, we try to gain as complete an understanding of your business as is possible to enable us to react promptly to your needs.

Our vast experience and in-depth knowledge means Macbrown can supply solutions for all your handling requirements.

Macbrown will supply the package that best meets your needs, with the commitment and flexibility to review your operation and if necessary grow and adapt our products and services in line with your changing requirements.


In the interest of our continuous improvement, we constantly monitor the quality of the service and aftercare you receive via our customer feedback and where necessary procedures are implemented or revised to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
