Toyota-Lift of Minnesota breaks ground in Southern Minnesota

Toyota-Lift of Minnesota began a new chapter in its history with the groundbreaking ceremony performed Monday July 26, 2015 for its new Byron building. The 13,000 square-foot building will be completed sometime in late 2015 or early 2016. The building will be a regional center for new and used equipment sales, as well equipment rentals and repairs. Equipment will include forklifts, variable reach construction forklifts, rough terrain forklifts, scissor lifts, personnel and burden carriers, towing equipment and rough terrain aerial lifts.

President John Scheunemann said, “We have been exploring opportunities to invest in the area and are very happy in securing the Byron location. The location just eight miles from Rochester Minnesota is centered in a robust area of economic growth. The facility will go a long way to support our sales, service and parts staff in the area, and will give our customers a local partner for dealing with the material handling, logistic and construction needs.”

The building is designed from the inside out with customer support in mind. It includes an equipment showroom, parts department, sales offices and a fully outfitted repair shop.  Built on a 4.3-acre lot, there is plenty of room for expansion.
