Mitsubishi Corp.'s heavy industries division has named a Farmingdale company, Tri-Lift Inc., as its authorized forklift distributor for most of New York City and for Long Island, Mitsubishi said Wednesday in a news release.
Tri-Lift, on Conklin Street in Farmingdale, will be responsible for authorized sales and service of Mitsubishi forklifts for Suffolk, Nassau, Queens, Kings, Bronx and New York counties -- a list that leaves out the Staten Island borough.
Tri-Lift will work directly with Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, headquartered in Houston, Texas.
“We are pleased to announce Tri-Lift Inc., as our newest Mitsubishi forklift truck dealer,” Kent Eudy, vice president of dealer sales for Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, said in a Wednesday news release. “With their vast knowledge of the material handling industry, their dedicated team of professionals has the expertise and know-how to provide the best forklift truck solutions, customer service and support.”
Mitsubishi said Tri-Lift "provides a wide range of material handling equipment from internal combustion cushion tire and pneumatic tire forklifts to electric counterbalanced and narrow aisle forklifts and walkies."
It has "a comprehensive inventory of parts and a team of skilled technicians . . . (and) also provides parts and service for any forklift truck brand," Mitsubishi said.
