The first Jungheinrich brand products manufactured by Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc (MCFA) for Jungheinrich AG are off the line and ready for distribution as a result of the August 2009 manufacturing and distribution agreement between the two companies.
The 3,000–5,500-lb stand-up end control lift truck and 2,500–4,500-lb reach truck are among the first Houston TX-built Jungheinrich brand products to debut, with others expected in 2011.
Per the terms of the agreement, which went into effect in January 2010, Jungheinrich will design products through its newly established Design Center Houston on the MCFA campus, with products being distributed exclusively through MCFA’s dealer network in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
“It’s exciting to see the results of the agreement materializing,” said Jeff Rufener, vice-president of marketing, MCFA. “Having the first new products roll off the line makes us very optimistic about the future.”
MCFA also manufactures a number of Jungheinrich branded lift trucks for distribution in the North American market. Jungheinrich’s North American product offering includes electric counterbalanced, narrow aisle, and walkie products with capacities ranging from 2,000 to 11,000 lbs.
