Clark Material Handling Company has completed an expansion at its manufacturing facility in Lexington, Kentucky.
With the completion of this third Lexington facility, Clark continues the re-shoring of assembly of its "heart-of-the-line" S-Series internal combustion products.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony officially opened the new facility and was conducted by SS Baik, vice chairman of Clark Material Handling International, along with Clark Material Handling Co. president and CEO Dennis Lawrence.
"With the opening of this new facility, we're marking an important step toward our future growth," said Lawrence. "This facility will improve our overall operations, drive out waste and reduce lead times. This also represents our ongoing commitment and investment to the Lexington area."
"We're now able to meet the growing demand for the Clark electric and internal combustion products, and Clark will have the assembly capacity for nearly 80% of its products in Lexington," commented Scott Johnson, Clark vice president of sales and marketing. "Combined with the completion of our R&D/Engineering Center in 2017, this new facility represents another key component to our future growth and desire to exceed customer expectations through high-quality materials handling solutions," he concluded.
