GREENVILLE, N.C. (April 30, 2015) – At ProMat 2015, Yale Materials Handling Corporation showcased its latest lift truck innovations, flexible power solutions and wireless asset management GPS enhancements. The company also highlighted its scalable fleet management and financing solutions, designed to help customers BREAK FREE from captive relationships and join the movement toward partnerships built around their terms.

“At Yale, our goal is to help customers increase the efficiency of their operations with creative products and solutions built specifically around their needs,” said David Furman, President of Sales and Marketing, Yale.

To demonstrate its latest lift truck innovations, Yale revealed a comprehensive range of flexible new power solutions and technologies engineered to help customers be more productive. On display, Yale’s lithium-ion battery pack made headlines as the first commercially available Underwriters Laboratories (UL) recognized lithium-ion battery pack in the forklift industry. The exhibit also featured Nuvera hydrogen fuel cells, with notable advantages including; three-minute re-fuel, high performance in cold environments and clean water vapor emissions.

Attendees were able to step onto the new ESC030AD three-wheel stand and experience the truck’s new multifunction control handle with fully proportional functionality, and Yale® Smart Ride Floor System, which, while operating on irregular floor surfaces, eliminates 65 percent of shock and vibrations transmitted to the operator.

Also on the show floor, the company presented how its Yale Vision wireless asset management system’s new GPS feature tracks the operation and location of a customer’s lift trucks, and also provides data insights about high-risk collision areas and route efficiency to drive informed decisions about facility layout and high traffic areas.
