About Us

MSM/DRH Limited has been established as a leading independent forklift solutions provider since 1974, supplying a quality service for the three counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire from our base in Worcester.

Throughout this period we have made changes in our supply chain. From BKC and Cesab in the early years, to the leading Japanese product Komatsu in the 90’s. In 1998 MSM/DRH Limited were pleased to be appointed a Mitsubishi Forklift Dealer and deservedly achieved the awards of UK After Sales Dealer of the Year in 2008 and 2009, followed by UK Dealer of the Year 2010.

In 2011 MSM/DRH Limited joined the family of the Japanese giant and world’s number one manufacturer Toyota, appointed Toyota Dealership for our existing area. The full product range manufactured by Toyota, with its leading edge technology, is second to none within the forklift industry.
