Tue January 22, 2013 - Midwest Edition

Palfinger, has officially grounded its roots in Tiffin, Ohio by purchasing the property and building in Tiffin on December 27, 2012. Undoubtedly, the sense of community in Tiffin has heightened as a result, according to the company.

Tiffin Loader Crane began selling and installing knuckle boom cranes in 1985 and built a reputation for developing innovative solutions to their customers’ material handling needs. They have become a world class installation and distribution center-the leading example of a successful Palfinger dealer, according to the company. The Tiffin location also serves as a manufacturing site for the new Palfinger GT brand of truck-mounted forklifts.

A strong relationship has always been evident between Palfinger and Tiffin Loader Crane, dating back to 1991 when Tiffin Loader Crane became the largest independent dealer for Palfinger. Since then, the relationship continued to strengthen as Palfinger acquired the company in 2000, making Tiffin its US home. Today, Palfinger announces that they truly own the Tiffin Loader Crane facility, making their ties the strongest yet.

Palfinger Managing Directors, Michael Berger and Mark Woody, declare that, "the future is never easy to foresee with new challenges just around the corner but it is reassuring to know that Palfinger will always be able to call Tiffin, Ohio, our home!"
