About us

Leader in lift truck and forklift innovations for warehouse operations

From a robust lineup of models to technology solutions, we help unlock the full potential of your materials handling operation.

Yale designs lift trucks to help you solve your challenges

Effective materials handling solutions go beyond simply moving product from point to point. At Yale, we are laser-focused on engineering equipment that helps answer your toughest labor, safety and productivity concerns.


Consult customers

As part of our blueprinting process, we spend hours interviewing and observing lift truck operators and customers to enrich our understanding of how you use the truck and the realities of your applications.


Develop products

Yale engineers work with our industry-focused teams and outside experts to translate operator, customer and industry or application-specific needs to functional features and design.


Test rigorously

New technologies are tested and refined based on customer feedback, then commercial-ready solutions are brought to market, fast so they can get to work helping your operation.

Yale Lift Truck Technologies is global, and local
