Wight Materials Handling was formed in 1999 and has steadily grown ever since. We now have 2 island based depots, 1 in Newport and another in Shalfleet. In 2009 we added Aims to our portfolio, strengthening our already strong team of engineers and office personnel.
The company is service led, placing major importance on after sales service programs. We have strong backgrounds in after sales service and repairs and feel it is most important to offer a fast, efficient and reliable field service to all customers.
“Should a machine need major repairs, we will loan the customer a replacement to keep mobile and goods moving.”
“With over 25 years in the industry, we are proud to offer solutions to any handling problem. Machines are provided to suit customers’ application and any budgeting constraints they may have.”
“We have machines available with all sizes of lifting capacity and offer electric, gas or diesel models.
