LiftOne has been appointed as the new Hyster and Yale dealer in Atlanta, Georgia, following its acquisition of Briggs Equipment’s operations in that location on 31 December 2021. LiftOne is one of the largest materials handling dealers in the US, with six locations in Georgia and 19 locations throughout its five-state service area.

“What sets our dealership apart is our unwavering commitment to be a trusted partner to our customers, our team members and the communities we serve,” says Mark Drummond, president of LiftOne. “We look forward to being a trusted partner to our new Atlanta customers and the communities in which they live and work. In the near term, our primary focus following the acquisition will be to make the transition seamless for all of our customers.”

Chuck Pascarelli, Hyster-Yale group president, Americas, notes that the Atlanta market is critically important to both Hyster and Yale. “We are delighted to have a dealer with LiftOne’s proven record of success and commitment to excellence expand into the Atlanta market. We feel it further reinforces our position as an industry leader in independent distribution.”

LiftOne’s Hyster and Yale appointment follows the November acquisition of Hyster assets of Briggs Equipment Arkansas by Medley Material Handling Company.

LiftOne, a CTE company, is a full-service materials handling dealership with 19 branch locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.

Besides Hyster and Yale lines, the dealer group supplies equipment  from CombiLift, Sellick and Ottawa as well as the related aftermarket services to keep products moving.
