Toyota-Lift will be renamed as Atlas Toyota Lift of Minnesota
The Atlas Companies, parent company of Atlas Toyota Material Handling (ATMH) of Chicago, has acquired Toyota-Lift of Minnesota.
Toyota-Lift will be renamed as Atlas Toyota Lift of Minnesota (ATLM) and will retain its two locations in Brooklyn Park and Byron.
ATMH has been a consistent leader in the materials handling industry and has consistently ranked as one of the top Toyota Material Handling companies in the United States. "Atlas Toyota Material Handling has been an exemplary Toyota dealer for more than 50 years, and we look forward to seeing what they can achieve with an expanded territory as a result of this acquisition," says TMH president and CEO Jeff Rufener.
Since its founding in 1951, Atlas has built a reputation as a trustworthy business resource, not only for forklift sales, but also for rental equipment, maintenance services, floor cleaning equipment, warehousing systems and a variety of materials handling equipment from industry-leading manufacturers. It is the goal of Allen Rawson, president and CEO of the Atlas companies, to promote the same values of integrity and excellence within every level of ATLM's current business units.
"We are excited for the opportunity to grow our business and to continue to offer customers in Minnesota and Wisconsin the same top-notch service that they have come to expect," says Al Rawson, ATMH president. "We look forward to this new chapter for our company."
The overall theme of the merger has been one of teamwork between newly united departments and associates, Rawson explains. As the 2020 year moves toward its final months, the process will extend to web communication media and integrated company processes in order to provide Atlas customers with a seamless experience.
Toyota-Lift of Minnesota was established in 1978 and, besides Toyota equipment, it sells and services equipment from Taylor -Dunn, Sellick, Aichi, Kalmar and JLG.
