Georgia-based forklift dealer Material Handling Inc (MHI) is expanding its sales and service coverage through buying two previously Jefferds Corporation-operated locations.

Jefferds Corporation has sold its Nashville, Tennessee, and Bowling Green, Kentucky, locations to MHI, Dalton, Georgia, for an undisclosed sum. MHI already has branches serving Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Gainesville, Georgia.

The acquisition will expand sales and service throughout middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky.

"We are very excited about incorporating the Nashville and Bowling Green locations
into the MHI family," MHI president Patrick Sain said. "It will be a good fit of products with our existing equipment lines and fields of expertise."

MHI is a family-owned company founded by Amar Sain. He purchased the first locations in Dalton and Gainesville, Georgia, in 1975. The company grew in 1985 with the addition of the Chattanooga location. It now has more than 120 employees. Amar's sons are involved in the business; Patrick Sain as president and Michael Sain as vice president.

The company offers a complete range of forklifts through brands including Clark, Linde, Komatsu and Prime-Mover.

Other equipment lines include Princeton truck-mounted forklifts, Combilift four-way machines for long load hauling, Drexel and Bendi very narrow aisle trucks, Cascade attachments, Cushman and Columbia Par-Car personnel and burden carrier vehicles and McGuire dock equipment.
