Toyota Industrial Equipment recognizes Shoppa's Material Handling for 30-year milestoneTuesday, November 22, 2016
Shoppa’s Material Handling is pleased to announce the celebration of their 30-year milestone as a Toyota Industrial Equipment dealer. The forklift dealership has been bringing innovative material handling, distribution and warehousing products to the North Texas marketplace for over three decades.
Founded in 1981, Shoppa’s established itself as a used equipment sales and material
handling service company, but quickly built a customer service-oriented operation and
became the exclusive authorized Toyota dealer for Tarrant County. Through the years
the company continued to grow and now has nine locations throughout North Texas
and Kansas City, Missouri.
“It is so nice to be recognized by Toyota for this 30-year milestone of working together
to meet the material handling application needs of our customers,” stated Jim L.
Shoppa, President, Shoppa’s Material Handling. “We have sold and helped maintain
thousands of Toyota forklifts but more important are the valuable partnerships we have
developed with our customers to not only meet but exceed their material handling and
logistics needs,” he added.
Today, Shoppa’s Material Handling is one of the largest and fastest growing
dealerships in the country. In addition to their anchor Toyota brand, the company
now represents a comprehensive line of industrial and warehouse equipment brands,
including aerial equipment by Genie and JLG, very narrow aisle (VNA) forklifts by
Bendi and Drexel, floor cleaning sweepers and scrubbers by Advance, utility and
personnel carrier vehicles by E-Z-GO, Cushman and SunEV as well as pallet rack by
Shoppa’s Material Handling, a 13-time recipient of the prestigious Toyota President’s
Award, is currently working together with Toyota on their 2020 Vision of doubling
in size. There are nearly 400 employees throughout the Fort Worth-headquartered
company. The dealership has purchased a 5-acre site for the building of a new larger
facility in Amarillo. In addition, the remodeling of their Saginaw location into a full
service Toyota forklift dealership is nearly complete to better serve Shoppa’s
expanding customer base.
To mark this major milestone for the Toyota forklift dealership, Shoppa’s will be
celebrating this year with exclusive customer events and promotions
