MH Equipment, based in Peoria, Ill., has announced it has gained sales and service responsibility for Yale brand forklifts in the Cincinnati area from Yale Industrial Trucks (YIT). The acquisition will make MH Equipment NACCO Material Handling Group's (NMHG) dual brand dealership representing both the Hyster and Yale brands in the Cincinnati market.
This acquisition not only allows MH Equipment to continue to serve the great people of Cincinnati, but it also adds Yale lift trucks to the MH Equipment family making them a dual-line dealer for the area. As part of this acquisition, MH Equipment and YIT have reached an agreement for YIT to assume the former MH Equipment Hyster operation in the Cleveland, Ohio area.
"Although we are relinquishing our presence in the Cleveland area, we are confident that we have found a good partner for those customers in YIT and we are certain that they will receive similar quality services through them that they have come to expect from MH Equipment," says John Wieland, CEO of MH Equipment.
"Our company is based on three principles: People Matter, Passion Inspires and Purpose Unites," continues Wieland. "We look forward to demonstrating these principles with our new customers and employees by demonstrating they can count on us to provide high-quality customer service and employment."
Started in Peoria, Ill., in 1952 as one of the smallest Hyster forklift dealerships nationwide, MH Equipment is now one of the largest and fastest-growing materials handling service providers in the U.S. The company offers a wide variety of new and used materials handling equipment, as well as, parts, service, rental equipment for any application, and fleet management solutions throughout their Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and West Virginia locations.
