Linde products are distinguished by their innovative industrial technology, energy efficiency and reduced operating costs, allowing up to a 40% savings compared to other brands. Not only does Linde offer the lowest total cost of ownership, their equipment is built for durability and performance in the toughest applications, he explains.

"The Linde forklift brand is a powerful addition to our offerings in the Illinois market. We know the equipment well and look forward to showcasing what the line can accomplish for our Illinois customers," Weidmann adds.
