About us

We are a Knowledgeable
and Hardworking Team


Forkwest was established in 1993 by Phil Baker

The venture started in Picton to service the material handling industry in the Southwest and relocated to a workshop in Halifax, Bunbury in 1996. Today, we service the entire WA region by providing full forklift servicing, engine overhauls and rebuilds from our fully-equipped workshop.

We employ a knowledgeable and hardworking team of 9 staff members who ensure that our clients receive efficient and professional service at all times. This includes our experienced forklift technicians and mechanics.


Our aim is to provide a convenient and cost-effective forklift resource under one roof. Our services include:

  • Selling New and Second Hand Forklifts
  • New and Second Hand Forklift Hire
  • Electric Forklifts
  • Hand pallet trolleys
  • We stock a large range of spare parts available through overnight courier services.


Forkwest incorporates Westate Industrial Repairs, which is responsible for repairs to all commercial vehicles including 4WDs, Utes and trucks.

We are also a member of the Bunbury Chamber of Commerce for the advancement of industry in the South West.
