Chillicothe, Illinois – MH Equipment will be partnering with Combilift to become a stocking dealer.

Combilift, based in Monaghan, Ireland, has grown to become the global leader in the long-handling market. The company is operated by experienced and well known industry leaders from within the specialty forklift industry.

Combilift built the world’s first IC engine-powered all-wheel-drive multidirectional forklift. It is actually a combination of forklift and side-loader, and is highly maneuverable, very safe, very cost effective and supremely efficient.

“As a globally recognized company with localized service and support through our key dealer network, Combilift is ideally placed to work alongside MH Equipment in providing a high quality service to customers. We are delighted to work with MH Equipment,” said Paul Short – Combilift’s North American sales president.

“MH Equipment and Combilift Inc. are pleased to announce MH is now a stocking dealer representing Combilift products across MH’s geographic footprint. The products from Combilift are recognized for their application innovation as well as for productivity, durability and quality which well supports MH’s commitment to provide its Customers innovative solutions and unparalleled value while striving to be a good steward of resources,” said MH Equipment president Fred Metzger.

Started in Peoria, Illinois in 1952 as one of the smallest Hyster forklift dealerships in the United States, MH Equipment has grown to become one of the largest and fastest growing material handling services providers in the US. In 1994, the company was purchased by current CEO John Wieland. Since then, it has grown from 50 employees into an organization comprised of multiple dealerships, over 700 employees and 28 servicing locations throughout the Midwest.
