Linde Material Handling Australia

Keeping Australia safe for over 50 years

In 1970 Australia was introduced to Linde’s innovative forklift technology. Linde Material Handling started in Australia under the name Lansing Bagnall and was based in Lidcombe, NSW. In 1989 Linde AG acquired Lansing Bagnall and became Linde Lansing. In 2005, the business officially changed its trading name to Linde Material Handling and that is where we find ourselves today!
