While many forklift brands are having to cope with 12- to 18-month delays in getting new trucks to customers, Big Joe claims to have plenty of stock ready to go.

Recently, Big Joe has seen demand for some models increase more than 200 % over previous years due to excellent availability, and anticipates that trend continuing as delays persist and plague the supply chain. 

“Big Joe has always been about simplicity of design and ruggedness that allows for dependable operation wherever our forklifts are needed,” said Bill Pedriana, Big Joe’s CMO. “Big Joe has a vertically integrated supply chain and streamlines the manufacturing process around core components we make in-house. This allows us to be an asset to any company needing to react quickly to changing market conditions or opportunities, in spite of the shortages the industry is facing, be it a customer or distributor.”

The company claims that by simplifying its products, Big Joe hasn’t suffered the delays that most of the industry has seen over the last three years. 

“The global shortage of forklifts has been a significant challenge to us as well as our customers that really need to keep operations moving,” said Nick Laboy, Vice President regional sales manager, Lift Truck Division at dealer Ring Power Corporation. “We have been able to solve much of these shortages by working with Big Joe, who has had consistent inventory to meet our needs. Big Joe builds a rugged and dependable line of warehouse vehicles that do the job and keep our customers operating in spite of the challenges. We truly appreciate Big Joe and their ability to deliver when we need it most.”
