About Us

Our Family – Your Family


Our happy family of companies has grown and prospered through a number of successful ‘marriages’ in which the partners share a commitment to particular values. Those relationships have also brought together the knowledge, experience and capabilities of each partner, for the benefit of all who work with us.


Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift Europe B.V. (MCFE) was born in 1992 as a joint venture between Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd (MHI) and Caterpillar Industrial Inc. – both of which have huge reputations within the engineering world. More recently, the forklift section of MHI joined with Nippon Yusoki Company Ltd to form Mitsubishi Nichiyu Forklift Company Ltd. On October 1, 2017, Mitsubishi Nichiyu Forklift Co., Ltd., conducted a business integration with UniCarriers Corporation, and the Company’s name changed to Mitsubishi Logisnext Co., Ltd.


So MCFE’s parents and shareholders are now Mitsubishi Logisnext Co., Ltd. and Caterpillar Industrial Inc.


The MCFE family is a large and complex one which includes a number of sisters, such as those based in America (MCFA) and Singapore, with whom we collaborate closely for the good of all.


We also have subsidiaries based on the Rocla organisation in Finland. Well known for its high-quality warehouse trucks and automated guided vehicles (AGVs), Rocla worked as an MCFE partner for many years and officially merged with us in 2008 through a public tender offer.


Everyone in the MCFE family is valued, respected and encouraged to succeed, from the largest of company divisions to each individual employee. We extend the same warm, welcoming approach to all of you who are customers, potential customers, others working in our industry and members of the communities we serve.
