Welcome to the website of FEM, the European manufacturers association of materials handling, lifting and storage equipment.
Materials handling, lifting and storage equipment ensures the flow of goods in manufacturing processes. You will find this equipment in all factories, warehouses, with distributors, at railway stations: wherever goods are to be moved, stored, sorted, packed and otherwise handled.
On this website you will find information on materials handling, lifting and storage equipment industries in Europe, the national association members of FEM (known as “National Committees”), the Product Groups representing the various technologies and sectors within FEM industries, publications and positions on issues of direct interest to FEM industries.
