Sellick's new USD21 million manufacturing facility
Sellick Equipment Limited recently cut the ribbon on an all-new USD21 million manufacturing facility with state-of-the-art technology to maintain its leadership in the rough-terrain forklift market.

The new 126,000 sqft. (11,700 sqm) purpose-built factory was designed for new product innovation, improvement to quality control and flexibility in product design.

To ensure higher quality standards, all areas of the manufacturing process were upgraded, including a new machining centre consisting of CNC-controlled laser cutting, milling and turning machines, automated storage and retrieval systems for raw materials and aftermarket parts, and advanced metal preparation and paint line to enhance product longevity.

Nearing its 50th year in business, Sellick continues to produce a wide variety
of rough-terrain forklifts, custom-built to meet customer applications and supported by a
dedicated dealer network throughout North America.

"Our long-term plan is to increase the business through new product," says president Howard Sellick. "The sky's the limit on what we can produce in this new facility."

Sellick is a subsidiary of Avis Industrial Corporation of Upland, Indiana, United States and was started in 1969, when Walter Sellick along with sons Howard and David converted a Ford 4500 industrial tractor into a forklift for outdoor use.
