Goscor Lift Truck Company is the main sponsor at this year’s prestigious Umhlanga Ski Boat Festival, scheduled for 16-17 June.

Fishing is a big part of the South African culture, especially considering the country’s vast coastline. It is also an industry close to the Goscor family, and at this year’s Umhlanga Ski Boat Festival, Goscor Lift Truck Company (GLTC) is showcasing its passion by being the main sponsor of the grand fishing festival.

Hosted by the Umhlanga Ski Club, the festival holds an important place in the fishing community’s hearts. Having stopped running for the past 12 years, GLTC’s sponsorship has gone a long way in helping with the relaunch of the festival this year. It is a flagship festival that originates way back from the 1990s, and attracts fisherman from the whole KwaZulu-Natal coast line. This year’s show will feature boats, paddle skis and a jetski fishing competition.

According to Michael Keats, Director at GLTC, the forklift specialist will have its range of products, including Doosan and Crown forklifts, on display at the show. GLTC is the sole distributor of leading forklift brands, including Crown, Doosan, Bendi, Hubtex and BHS Battery Handling Solutions, allowing the company to offer a full basket of materials handling and warehousing solutions to its customers.
