Hyster-Yale announces acquisition of Speedshield's installation and distribution business

Thursday, April 7, 2016

Hyster-Yale Group, Inc. announced that it acquired Speedshield Technology, Pty Ltd’s telematics installation and distribution businesses in the United States and the United Kingdom.

This acquisition provides Hyster-Yale with the exclusive distribution
rights of these businesses’ products in all areas outside of Australia. Following this acquisition, the acquired businesses will be rebranded as HYG Telematic Solutions.
Speedshield Technology, located in Melbourne, Australia, is a leading provider of advanced and comprehensive telematics technology for material handling equipment, as well as other fleet vehicle applications.

Today, Speedshield Technology is the sole authorized provider of telematics 
products to Hyster-Yale customers, under the Yale Vision and Hyster Tracker telematics product offering.

Following the acquisition, Hyster-Yale intends to further develop its capabilities and enhance its efforts to service the fast growing market for telematic solutions and fleet data analytics for material handling fleets. The telematics application is currently offered in all new Hyster® and Yale® lift trucks and is able to be retrofitted into existing Hyster® and Yale® lift trucks, as well as lift trucks and allied equipment from other manufacturers.

Over the past few years, Hyster-Yale has focused on increasing unit volume through market share gains by delivering lowest cost of ownership to customers in a wide range of applications. In this context, the Company has been evaluating and investing in a broad range of technologies which will enhance the customer’s lift truck ownership experience. The purchase of this business is a strategic acquisition which is expected to provide a solid platform to expand the Company's offering of Hyster® and Yale® fleet management solutions.
