Hoist opens new Houston distribution center

Hoist Liftruck celebrated their grand opening of its new regional distribution center located in Houston, Texas on Friday, October 24th.

“We’re excited to welcome the public to celebrate the grand opening of Hoistlift of Texas, our new regional distribution center,” said president and CEO, Martin Flaska. “The expansion into the Houston market will not only allow us to better support our dealers in the Texas market, but will also provide increased support for the southwestern United States as well as our international business that is shipped out through the Port of Houston.”

The 20,000 square-foot location carries Hoist Liftruck’s full line of High Capacity forklifts/lift trucks as well as offering replacement parts and technical support. The new location will stock equipment and parts, allowing for immediate delivery to dealers or end users within Texas and surrounding states. Fueled on the growth of the oil and gas industry Hoist felt there was no better time to solidify a presence in one of the largest markets in the U.S. In addition to the increased presence in the southwestern United States, this new location will also allow for international shipments to be made directly out of the port of Houston- drastically decreasing the already industry-leading lead times.
