What is ALLMI and why is it so important to our industry?

From the ALLMI Website:

The Association of Lorry Loader Manufacturers and Importers (ALLMI) was founded in 1978 at the request of the Health and Safety Executive, and it remains today as the UK’s only Trade Association devoted exclusively to the lorry loader industry. It serves, represents and promotes the interests of its members and the industry at large, and it is the natural focus and authority on all issues involving the design, manufacture, application and use of lorry loaders.

ALLMI’s core aims are:

  • To promote the safe use of lorry loaders.
  • To ensure that the Association is involved in the formulation of any legislation which affects the industry’s interests.
  • To promote compliance with training requirements embodied in current legislation.

ALLMI has members drawn from all parts of the industry, including manufacturers / importers, service agents, ancillary equipment manufacturers / suppliers, fleet owners and site operators.

All members share the same objective of promoting safe use and best practice.

ALLMI and Penny Hydraulics – influencing change in across the LCV industry.

It’s been a mission of Richard’s to influence positive change across the LCV industry.

‘35% of all work-related illnesses are musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). An MSD can affect muscles, joints and tendons in all parts of the body, they are often connected to incorrect manual handling. That equates to over 469,000 workers suffering from work-related MSDs in 2017/18 and over 6.6 million working days lost*. Penny Hydraulics design, manufacture, install and maintain specialist lifting equipment to remove any requirement of manual handling.’

Penny Hydraulics’ portfolio of products includes Vehicle Mounted Lifting Equipment in the form of SwingLift cranes, Hydraulic PH Cranes and Hydraulic Loading Platforms. This specialist lifting equipment is lightweight to maximise payload yet powerful with a range of lifting capacities suitable for many applications.

We also can offer ALLMI accredited training – if this is of interest, please get in touch
