Detas was founded in 1969 and started as a manufacturer of diesel forklifts. In 1980, the company started constructing 2-3 tonne electric forklifts. Four years later, in 1984, Detas bought Robustus in Lugo, a popular make of electric forklifts that was founded in the early ‘60s.
After the acquisition, Detas moved Robustus to Coseano and started the production of a new complete range of electric forklifts, after which the brand became known as Detas Robustus. In 1985, the name Detas changed to Nuova Detas.
Detas ceased activities in May 2012. Three years later, in 2015, TVH acquired the complete stock of Nuova Detas parts, suitable for diesel trucks from 2 to 18 tonnes and electric trucks from 1 to 5 tonnes. As a result, they can continue to offer customers genuine Detas and Robustus parts, as well as technical documentation, manuals, stickers etc. with a very short delivery time.
