C & B Material Handling has acquired the assets of Jefferds Corporation and its Homestead Material Handling Company subsidiary, expanding Hyundai’s footprint in North America.  

With multiple dealer locations, Jefferds and Homestead are leading suppliers of materials handling equipment, parts and service in Virginia and West Virginia. 

Already a powerful force in the agricultural marketplace, C&B expanded into materials handling in 2021, and now offers Hyundai forklifts to customers at 10 locations across the nation. 

“When we entered into our partnership with C&B, we knew we were joining an organisation committed to growth,” says Hyundai COO Lewis Byers. “We also share their powerful commitment to honesty, ethics, hard work, service and innovation.”

Family-owned Jefferds traces its history back to 1947, when Joe Jefferds started selling forklifts in Charleston, West Virginia from Chicago’s Automatic Transportation Co.

Headquartered in St. Albans, Jefferds has locations in Clarksburg, Cross Lanes, Huntington and Parkersburg, West Virginia.

Homestead is a division of Jefferds, with locations in Roanoke, Lynchburg, Chesapeake, Richmond, Chilhowie and Verona, Virginia.

Besides Hyundai, Homestead also stocks Clark, Doosan, Linde and Combilift equipment.
