BYD Material Handling has entered into a dealership agreement for its materials handling products with Ogden Forklifts, expanding its reach in the American southeast. In business for over 60 years in Georgia, Ogden Forklifts recently acquired Florida Forklifts, giving the company seven locations: Atlanta and Savannah in Georgia; and Tampa, Jacksonville, Orlando, Winter Haven and Fort Myers in Florida.
The employee-owned company offers materials handling equipment products, parts, and service. “This agreement gives BYD a greater presence in the southeast market to help revolutionise the forklift industry by bringing our state-of-the-art products to a new audience,” says Terry Rains, director of BYD North America’s Forklift Division. “The people of Ogden Forklift have a depth of knowledge about the materials handling industry and are committed to customer service. They understand the importance of our revolutionary technology, and are a great fit with BYD.”
“We believe BYD is the right partner to expand with in our new joint territory in Florida and Georgia,” says John Gehrhardt, Ogden Forklifts’ CEO and president. BYD will join products from UniCarriers, Clark and Hangcha at Ogden.
