HILO-Yale Industrial Trucks this week acquired Hyster lift truck dealer Viccaro Equipment. Named as an authorized Hyster dealer, HILO updated its name to HILO Materials Handling Group to reflect its new dual-dealer status.
Headquartered in Hauppauge, N.Y., HILO has more than 20 years of experience serving Long Island’s Nassau and Suffolk counties. HILO will take over Hauppauge-based Viccaro territories, assets, liabilities and the majority of personnel. The existing Viccaro facility will be rebranded with the HILO name and used for storage purposes only.
Based in Greenville, N.C., Hyster Co. is a worldwide lift truck designer and manufacturer. Hyster is an operating division of NACCO Materials Handling Group.
