Welcome to Abbey, material handling solutions for the UK forklift industry

Abbey Attachments Ltd was established in Manchester, UK in 1984. We’re an independently owned business specialising in the supply, service, and support of forklift attachments and innovative material handling safety solutions for the UK forklift industry.

Since 1984, Abbey’s forklift attachments and material handling safety solutions have been delivering improved safety, productivity, and peace of mind for forklift manufacturers, dealers, and end-users.
