The industrial machinery supplier Viccaro Equipment of Hauppauge has been bought by another Hauppauge company, the companies said this week. 

The two businesses feature a wide range of forklifts, lift trucks and other materials handling equipment. They will combine under a new name, Hilo Materials Handling Group, headquartered at 345 Oser Ave. in Hauppauge. 

“Two great companies are now under one solid roof,” the new company says on its website. 

“Together, we are uniquely positioned to offer our customers the most choices and solutions in warehousing and material handling equipment.” 

The company is an authorized dealer of products by Yale, Hyster, Kelly, Serco, Rytec and TKO. 

It serves customers in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Westchester and Manhattan.
