Alta Enterprises has entered into an agreement to purchase Northland Industrial Truck Co., Inc. (NITCO). The acquisition will expand Alta’s business into the New England market, adding full-service materials handling sales operations in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine.

NITCO and its construction equipment group, Northland JCB, will continue to operate as wholly owned subsidiaries of Alta, with no changes to leadership or business operations. Alan Hammersley will continue as president and chief executive officer of NITCO and Northland JCB, reporting to Ryan Greenawalt, president and CEO of Alta.

"The Alta team has always held NITCO in the highest regard. NITCO’s strength in the materials handling space, anchored by the Hyster and Yale brands, innovative solutions approach, and fast-growing Northland JCB Construction Equipment Group aligns with Alta’s vision and builds on our integrated industrial, construction and compact equipment capabilities," says Greenawalt.

"NITCO is very pleased to become part of the Alta family and continuing on our growth path as we enter into this next chapter in the evolution of the company," says Hammersley. "Together, we will continue to provide the highest level of support to our customers while working to meet the high standards that all our stakeholders deserve."

Alta currently has 24 branch locations across the Great Lakes Region. This acquisition will add six branches to the company’s footprint, including three locations in Massachusetts and one each in Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine.

Alta and NITCO are both award-winning dealers for the Hyster-Yale Group and specialise in sales, rental and service of materials handling, industrial and construction equipment for a diverse group of industries.

The transaction is subject to approval and is expected to close within the next 45 to 60 days. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.
