CLARK honors top forklift dealers with Dealer of Excellence awards

Thursday, March 24, 2016

CLARK Material Handling Company recently announced the 2016 recipients of its prestigious “Dealer of Excellence” awards. Each year, CLARK selects its top dealers who excel in new equipment and aftermarket parts sales, service achievement, general customer satisfaction and overall dealership operations, and awards them with CLARK’s highest honors. The awardees were hosted at a special event held at CLARK’s North American headquarters in Lexington, Kentucky on February 10-12, 2016.

President and C.E.O., Dennis Lawrence, commented on the importance of the awards recognition as to not only demonstrate the company’s appreciation for a job well done, but also as a validation of the strong viability of CLARK’s product in the marketplace and the continued surge of the CLARK brand in North America.

CLARK’s 2016 Dealer of the Year is Valley Industrial Trucks, Inc. Celebrating their 60th
year as a CLARK dealer, Valley is a two-time winner of this distinguished award. At
their recent anniversary celebration, held in Youngstown, Ohio, the award was
presented to Valley’s employees. Mr. Jim Hammond, President, commented, “Valley
Industrial Trucks and CLARK share a common growth strategy. Our businesses have
been aligned since our inception 60 years ago and our futures remain strong together.”
Buffalo Lift Trucks, Inc. was recognized as CLARK’s 2016 New Dealer of the Year, an
award presented to Paul Notaro, Sales Department Manager, at the ceremony in
Lexington. In business for more than 30 years, Buffalo Lift Trucks became a CLARK
