Hyster-Yale announces sales and service territory change in southern US market


Material handling dealer Black Equipment has been appointed as the single authorised dealer for both Hyster-Yale Group brands in the Tennesse and Arkansas markets.

The news follows the company’s acquisition of Briggs Equipment operations as the Hyster dealer in Memphis (Tennessee), Jackson (Tennessee), and Jonesboro (Arkansas) effective 29 April.

Black Equipment was already the authorised Yale dealer for these markets and will continue to operate from its existing locations.

“Memphis, Jackson and Jonesboro are very significant to Hyster and Yale, and this expansion by Black Equipment further strengthens our dedicated dealer network,” said Chuck Pascarelli, Americas Division President at Hyster-Yale Group.

“With a proven performance record that includes 22 consecutive years of recognition as a Dealer of Excellence, we are confident in the service and expertise that Black Equipment will provide to their new customers in these markets.”

As part of this transaction, Briggs Equipment will also take over the Black Equipment territory as the Yale dealer for Tupelo (Mississippi).

Last February, the Hyster J155-190XNL high-capacity lift truck won the prestigious 2021 GOOD DESIGN Award.
