After each acquiring portions of Barloworld Handling assets, two companies are now distributing and servicing Hyster® brand lift trucks.
Briggs Equipment Inc., located in Dallas, now represents Hyster in Florida, Arkansas, and portions of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi. The company also distributes Yale® lift trucks in Texas and parts of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, and the U.K. and represents Hyster and Yale in most of Mexico.
LiftOne, a division of Carolina Tractor and Equipment Co. in Charlotte, N.C., becomes the Hyster dealer in portions of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Virginia, and Tennessee. The company is transitioning from existing competitive supplier relationships since being appointed to represent Hyster.
