Founded in 2000
IMS was founded in 2000 by Adrian Smith. Adrian started his career in the lift truck industry in 1977, when he completed a five year RTITB apprentice scheme set up by his then employer, Harvey Forklifts. It was the first scheme of its kind, at this time.
Attending South Oxford Technical College, Henley-on-Thames and South Bristol Technical College, he achieved nine City and Guilds certificates, and went on to study Management, Administration and Law in motor vehicles. After finishing his apprenticeship in the early 1980s Adrian worked for many major lift truck companies as an engineer, before deciding to set up the now renowned company, IMS.
Adrian has a strong belief in training and has put his own staff through lift truck apprenticeships. He has continued to receive training and now passes his experiences on,in lift truck training as an ITSSAR & RTITB registered & Accredited instructor. He’s also a fully qualified lift truck engineer.
