Lift Truck Supply has begun construction on a 20,000 sq. ft. expansion to their Tyler shop location. The expansion will create additional technician jobs and increase service support for East Texas customers. When finished, the shop expansion will more than double service capabilities, creating a total of 40 equipment service bays. The new addition includes an indoor drive-through area for road trucks to load and unload equipment with the ability to handle extra-large capacity forklifts and telehandlers. The shop will also have a new break room and additional space for racking and storage.
“Lift Truck Supply continues to experience phenomenal growth in all areas of our industry and market; we recently added new locations in Mt. Pleasant and Cedar Park to help meet demand in Northeast and Central Texas. East Texas continues to add new manufacturing and distribution operations, all of which use material handling equipment. We are making major investments at our Tyler headquarters to ensure we keep up with service demands and better support our customers,” said Jimmy Head General Manager.
Architect for the project is Sherrell Construction. The firm’s projects include property development, new construction, and remodel services for commercial and industrial projects.
