The company was founded in 1987 when the Italian parent company BOLZONI, a manufacturer of forklift truck attachments and OEM products, decided to open a new commercial subsidiary in the U.K. to meet local market requirements.
In 2001, the product range available on the U.K. market was given a further boost following BOLZONI’s acquisition of the Finnish Group AURAMO, specialized and recognized worldwide for the forest and paper industry products. In 2006, the acquisition of the well-known German brand MEYER, representing a long tradition in the lift truck attachment industry with an excellent brand image, added many attachments and, in particular, the highly successful and greatly appreciated multiple pallet handler range.
In that time BOLZONI Ltd has grown to be the biggest supplier of forklift attachments in the UK. This growth has been supported by increased service and spare parts activities both from Warrington and the three European factories in Italy, Finland and Germany.
The hire fleet also satisfies both short and long term requirements as well as being a support for any potential long term problems or damage to attachments. The country is split into four regions and managed by the most experienced attachment sales team in the country. This expertise ensures that the correct attachment is specified quickly and efficiently for the application.
Lift Tables and Forks complete the vast portfolio of BOLZONI Ltd with the former being supplied to a variety of industries and the latter produced in Italy and China catering for the ‘after sales’ market.

Forest products, and paper rolls, in particular, are one of the main cargo groups requiring specialized lift truck attachments. Paper rolls are heavy, prone to damage, difficult to handle and have a considerable unit value. The transport chain of the rolls is often long, requiring as many as 16 handling stages before the paper roll is in the printing machine.
This makes it essential to use well-chosen, well-maintained equipment. All paper rolls are not equal – neither are the tools to handle them.
Paper rolls are manufactured in a great variety of diameters, widths and weights. Varying printing processes and paper grades set different requirements to the physical dimensions of the paper rolls.
Pulp bale clamps are normally designed to carry 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 or 8 pulp bale units at a time. Sometimes the same clamps are also used to handle single bales and non-unitized bale sets. When selecting the attachment to handle pulp bales, pay special attention to how, and with which bale unit combinations the handling will happen.
Recovered paper (waste paper) is collected from the consumers, then compressed (often in local collection facilities) into bales and transported to the pulp factory. Waste paper bale handling is generally harsher than any other bale handling operation, and attachments often need increased protection against wear and tear, and all moving and hydraulic components must be well protected against hitting and dropping objects.
The most common application fields of carton clamps are household appliances – such as washing machines, refrigerators, microwave ovens as well as televisions and many other non-palletised home appliance devices with or without outer packaging.
From the production plants to the final user, the carton clamps increase both process stability and productivity by safe and simultaneous handling of a large number of products and ensure damage-free handling of sensitive goods by optimal adjusted clamp forces.
The rotator is suitable for all applications where the working cycles require load rotation or emptying of containers, such as in metallurgical, chemical, automotive, recycling, waste disposal and in food processing operations. A wide range of capacities ensures that the correct unit is specified and is cost-effective for every application.
