CLARK Material Handling Company exits ITA
Industry sources are reporting that CLARK Material Handling Company has apparently departed from the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) which represents the North American Industry and its supply base.
Material Handling Wholesaler has reached out to CLARK Material Handling Company and ITA and is awaiting additional comment. We did receive email correspondence from Jeff English, CLARK General Council and Secretary and he said, “CLARK has no further comment at this time.”
CLARK Material Handling Company is headquartered in Lexington, KY. They were a founding member of ITA over 70 years ago. CLARK was founded in 1917 with the first Tructractor built in Buchanan, Michigan by employees of the CLARK Equipment Company. The Tructractor was the world’s first internal combustion-powered industrial truck.
The Industrial Truck Association is an organization of industrial truck manufacturers and suppliers of component parts and accessories that conduct business in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Members gain access to exclusive member services, such as industry engineering practices, statistical reporting, market development, training, and networking.
