I am privileged to have this opportunity and look forward to expanding Harlo’s market penetration with its superior line of products that have become a staple in the forklift industry.
“With recently celebrating 75 years in business, with over three generations of privately held interest, Harlo Corporation’s history speaks volumes to its integrity as well as to its commitment to not just the Industry, but moreover to their customers — it’s unmatched and something I am proud to become a part of.”
