KION North America has announced its territory expansion with dealer partner Carson Material Handling. This expansion includes a new location in Campobello, South Carolina, and involves the acquisition of J&J Forklift Services.
Carson Material Handling is authorised to sell the Linde Material Handling and Baoli brands.
"We are grateful for our long and rewarding relationship with Carson Material Handling," says Rick Schiel, KION director, distribution management. "This expansion signifies Carson Material Handling's continued commitment to growth and being a trusted resource for their clients’ needs."
For almost 20 years, Carson Material Handling has been a fleet management solutions provider throughout North Carolina and North-Western South Carolina. Its one-stop-shop process for client challenges includes creating a holistic approach by providing equipment expertise, fleet automation, and service support throughout the customer's life-cycle journey.
“As a Linde-only dealership, we made a commitment to continue to grow and expand our footprint, marketshare and capabilities within North and South Carolina,” says Duane Wilson, CEO of Carson Material Handling. “Our J&J Forklift Services acquisition provides an opportunity to bring our entire package of tested fleet management solutions to the upstate South Carolina market.
“With the full product line available from KION North America and the increased amount of localisation, we are excited to offer our new customer base a wide range of equipment made in South Carolina to be used in South Carolina,” Wilson adds.
