1969 was a year full of milestones. A man walked on the moon, the Boeing 747 jumbo jet made its debut and TVH was founded. A lot has changed in past 50 years. TVH started with a handshake between two hardworking and determined individuals and has grown into a multibillion-dollar company with over 6,000 employees and 72 locations throughout the world.
Through the past 50 years, TVH has been committed to being the one-stop-shop for our customers and understands that they rely on us for their material handling and industrial parts needs. We are proud to offer 39 million products for a wide range of equipment types including forklifts, mobile elevating work platforms, telehandlers, personnel and burden carriers, sweepers and scrubbers, truck mounted forklifts and more. In order to keep up with our customer’s needs, TVH adds more than 36,000 part numbers to our inventory each year. Our dedication to developing and providing new and innovative products has made us one of the most respected names in the industry today.
In addition to offering products from internationally recognized manufacturers, TVH also proudly manufactures quality products such as machined items, electronic components, safety accessories and more. We know the quality of our products and customer satisfaction is the key to our success.
