A Brief History
Much like its parent company, Mitsubishi Logisnext (ML), Mitsubishi Logisnext Europe (MLE) has a rich history.Corporate
We began as two separate bodies
Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift Europe (MCFE) Group and UniCarriers Europe (UCE) Group – before becoming established as a holding entity on the 1st of April, 2018.
Fast-forwarding to the 1st of April, 2020, we saw the former management and operations of MCFE and UCE Groups become fully integrated into Mitsubishi Logisnext Europe, uniting the heritage and agility of more than 2,100 employees to form the material handling powerhouse that you see today.
We have systematically evolved over time, bringing together the skills and experience of names such as Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, Nichiyu, Caterpillar, Rocla, Nissan, Atlet, TCM and UniCarriers.
We are a group with a unique history and we have learned from each of our personal milestones. All the companies that have positively influenced us with their knowledge and expertise define who we are – one of the largest, most forward-thinking material handling companies in the world.
