CLARK's Lexington headquarters
CLARK plans to expand its North American headquarters in Lexington, Kentucky. A third production plant will be put into operation at the location in the future, where the S-Series combustion engine counterbalance trucks will be produced for the US market. Series production is expected to start this summer.

"The expansion of our Lexington facility is an important step in positioning CLARK for the future," says Dennis Lawrence, president & CEO of CLARK Material Handling Company in the USA. "With the expansion of production, we want to further improve our processes, avoid waste and shorten throughput times. We would like to exceed the expectations of our customers and push our global growth."

The USD4.6 million upgrade is the third expansion of CLARK’s Lexington site in four years. In 2017, CLARK started operating a new R&D/Engineering Centre in the USA, after production was expanded in 2016 to include high-volume models from the closed Mexican plant.

In order to meet the growing demand for electric and internal combustion engine industrial trucks, CLARK plans to produce almost 80% of its products for the US market in Lexington in the future.
