JCB last week announced Yale Lift Trucks of Florida and Georgia as a new full-line dealer joining its expanding dealer network. The new division will be named JCB of Florida and South Georgia and will remain under the same ownership and management as Yale Lift Trucks of Florida and Georgia. The company will service JCB customers from its four existing locations in Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville, Fla., and Tifton, Ga.
“We are proud to welcome JCB of Florida and South Georgia to the JCB family,” said John Patterson, chairman and CEO of JCB. “Their outstanding reputation and their strong commitment to the customer make them a valuable partner for us.”
Both JCB and Yale Lift Trucks of Florida and Georgia are family-owned and operated businesses, which is one of the qualities that attracted Yale Lift Trucks CEO, A.D. “Sandy” MacKinnon to JCB. “The culture at JCB is very similar to the culture we have at Yale Lift Trucks,” said MacKinnon. “Being a family-owned business, we believe in the same principles of hard work, cooperation and quick decisions.”
