Leon Smerdon

Leon completed his National Technical Certificate 4 in (NTS4) qualifying as a Forklift Technician in 1992.  It was from here after doing his apprenticeship and then soon afterward starting his own business that his passion for Forklifts began.

He ran a successful company for the next 18 years with extensive experience and became a well-known market leader in the forklift Refurbishment, Sales and Rental Industry. Leon took a 4-year sabbatical from the business and consulted within the industry, in which he recognized and found a niche in the market for a good quality partner to tailor make solutions for prospective customers.
