GREENVILLE, N.C. (April 6, 2018) – Yale Materials Handling Corporation is pleased to announce the appointment of Papé Material Handling to its network of leading independent Yale® dealers in the Northern California territory, effective March 29, 2018.

Papé Material Handling, part of Eugene-based Papé Group, Inc., is now the authorized and exclusive dealer of Yale lift trucks, parts and service in Northern California. It currently provides sales, rental, finance, parts and service for the material handling and warehousing industries throughout eight western states.

“Being on such an esteemed list of supply chain professionals is a huge honor and validates our approach to providing industry-focused counsel that offers real value to the customer,” said Bell. “The breakneck pace of change means modern supply chains must ditch a launch-it-and-leave-it approach and embrace continuous optimization. Success requires close, committed partners that bring value with an uncommon, outside perspective.”

“We’re happy to extend our Yale territories and keep our new and current customers’ businesses moving through consistent, quality customer service that maximizes their uptime,” said Chris Wetle, President of Papé Material Handling.

“We are excited that Papé Material Handling is now the authorized Yale dealer in Northern California, and are extremely confident in their commitment and capabilities,” said Bob Sattler, Vice President of Dealer Development, Yale Materials Handling Corporation. “Their dedication to excellence and record of performance in the materials handling industry should quickly translate into success. This expansion is an example of how our network of valued and experienced independent dealers keeps getting stronger – an invaluable resource for Yale customers to get what they need, when they need it.”
