OE Attachments Launches the Forklift Safety Device

“Going by the numbers, our industry is long overdue for a product like this,” Terry Melvin, CEO of OE Attachments said. The numbers he refers to are the statistics regarding forklift accidents and workplace safety. Per OSHA’s data, forklifts are responsible for one out of every six workplace accidents.

70% of those accidents are caused by human error that could have been avoided, such as incorrectly estimating the forklift’s load center or taking on a load that’s way over capacity, which can result in tipping. 67% of fatal accidents are due to vehicle tipping or being crushed between the forklift and the ground surface.


OE Attachments Partners with German Manufacturer Kaup

OE Attachments is pleased to announce an exclusive North American partnership with Kaup GmbH & Co. KG, a premium international manufacturer of forklift and construction attachments. Headquartered in Aschaffenburg, Germany, Kaup currently has thirteen branches, representatives in thirty-three countries, and sells worldwide.

Terry Melvin, CEO of OE Attachments, commented, “We couldn’t be more excited about this new partnership with Kaup. For years, we’ve been a mainstay in the forklift forks and attachments business, but our company has been looking to expand its product line. After meeting with Kaup and seeing their quality hydraulic products in action, I knew a partnership would take both our companies to the next level.”
