LiuGong North America welcomed Defatte Equipment Inc., located in the northern coastal area of Ukiah, Calif., to its material handling dealer network. Defatte has established itself for more than 20 years by growing its presence and customer following in the North Bay area, mainly Lake and Mendocino counties.
Founded in 1999 as a used forklift dealer, today Defatte supplies sales, rental, and service throughout California's Lake and Mendocino counties, serving the construction, industrial and agriculture industries.
“We've been growing as a heavy equipment rental and sales yard for the past 20-plus years and never taken on a line of material handling products,” said Joe Defatte, CEO, Defatte Equipment.
Defatte described the key factors that led to joining the LiuGong dealer network.
“We just felt that this was the next logical step in our growth,” he said. “We chose LiuGong for their rare combination of quality and price point that we feel will fit into our market just right.”
Jared Ward, vice president, material handling, LiuGong North America, noted the Defatte company history and success while welcoming them on board.
