Faces of Forkway –

With Kyle Bohler
Parts Manager, Dewsbury

Our ‘Faces of Forkway’ series is where we shine a spotlight on the incredible people who make Forkway the company it is today. This time, we sit down with Kyle Bohler from our Dewsbury depot.

Can you tell us a little about yourself and your background?

I started in the swimming pool industry in South Africa for a company called The Pool Team, I started working there when I was 15 on weekends and when I left school, I was given a full-time position as a counter salesman, after 2 and a half years I was promoted to branch manager where I did that role for a further 4 years and 7 months before deciding to immigrate to the UK where my industry took a turn in the direction of the automotive world. I began my UK journey as an assistant branch manager for GSF Car Parts where I spent 4 and a half years. I furthered my career by taking an opportunity to work in the HGV sector with a company called Northern Commercials where I spent just shy of 5 years before being approached by Forkway with an incredible opportunity to run the parts department which I could not refuse and I have been here since 4 February 2024.
