Hangcha Forklift Canada is opening a warehouse in Mississauga, Ontario, in October.

The 30,000 sq ft facility joins existing warehouses in Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec, and Vancouver, allowing the company to maintain an inventory of 550 units at any given time. The Vaudreuil-Dorion facility, in the Montreal area, is 26,500 square feet.

The new facility will allow the company to hold inventory of 550 units at any given time.

Hangcha Canada offers a range of material handling solutions to meet the needs of the Canadian market. It offers electric counterbalance lifts, narrow aisle trucks, pallet jacks, tow tractors, and a rough terrain forklift among others. It has a full line of lithium-ion battery powered vehicles.

“Selling Hangcha Canada material handling equipment allows our staff to offer the Ontario market a full line of high-quality and well-priced electric and internal combustion forklifts and reach trucks,” said Chris DiBerto, sales manager at Ri-Go Lift Truck Ltd.

“Hangcha Canada offers a broader product range than most Original Equipment Manufacturers (‘OEM’) with stock at three distribution centres in Canada, making it easier than ever for our team to demo and receive quick delivery on equipment.”

According to Randy Thistel, Hangcha Canada’s Ontario sales representative, the new Mississauga warehouse is increasing the company’s ability to support and grow Hangcha Canada’s footprint in Ontario.

“Hangcha Canada’s expansion plan signifies our dedication to Canada’s material handling industry. In January 2024, we will be expanding our headquarters in Quebec to include a state-of-the-art, on-site training centre and a parts department, allowing us to keep up with Canada’s ever-growing demand for our electric [lithium-ion] product line,” said Robert Pitzul, vice-president of sales at Hangcha Canada.

Hangcha Forklift Canada Inc is headquartered in Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC, and was incorporated in 2019. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hangcha Group, a full-line forklift developer, manufacturer, and supplier.

The parent company has been around since 1956. Its first forklift rolled off the line in 1974. In 2012 the company branched out into AGV manufacturing.
