Papé Material Handling has announced it closed on the purchase of the assets of the Oregon and Washington operations of Pacific Material Handling Solutions, the Yale forklift dealer in Oregon and Washington. Papé Material Handling is moving the acquired Yale operations to its current locations in Portland and Eugene, Ore. and Seattle, Wash.
“This is a positive move for everyone,” said Chris Wetle, president of Papé Material Handling. “We’ll now be the provider of both Yale and Hyster forklifts, allowing us to further our mission of providing superior equipment lines backed by consistent, quality customer service.”
The deal closed April 29 and allows Papé to expand and enhance its material handling line, company officials said. The additional line of Yale forklifts will improve the sales and service network for the Papé Material Handling locations and serve to attract new customers.
