Hyundai Forklift and National Lift Truck Service enter into dealer agreement

Hyundai Forklift announced the appointment of National Lift Truck Service, Inc., headquartered in Pompano Beach, Fla., as its newest authorized dealer. National has four full-service locations in Florida: Pompano Beach, Miami, West Palm Beach and Port St. Lucie. With 40 years in business in South Florida, National is proud to add Hyundai Forklift to its material handling business line.

National’s footprint expands Hyundai’s South Florida representation to cover from Miami-Dade to Indian River Counties, with potential to expand further north. “Distribution growth is the key to our ability to serve customers,” said Chuck Leone, Vice President of Hyundai Forklift. “National has the experienced staff and capabilities that will help continue to grow our business in North America.”

National Lift Truck Service President Robert Siano said, “Earlier this year, I traveled to the ProMat tradeshow to find added-value products to grow our successful, 40-year-old Florida based company. My intent was to add allied lines, but what I saw at the Hyundai booth – the technology, the many standard features, and the great warranty – was a brand focusing on innovation in forklift design and performance, and I opted in.”

According to Siano, National Lift Truck Service serves more than 15,000 customers across South Florida, which is home to several major sea ports. “Our customers are industry leaders in independent distribution,” he said.

“This is why we are delighted to welcome Hyundai Forklift to our offerings,” Siano added. “Their commitment to the technology and workmanship of their forklifts will create a highly successful future for National Lift Truck Service and our customers.”

Hyundai Forklift is located in Norcross, Ga., and is a full-line supplier of forklifts, including electric, LP and diesel-powered models, from 2,200 to 55,000 lb (997 to 24,947 kg) capacity, with more than 150 dealer and branch locations throughout the United States and Canada.
