Nissan Forklift Corporation joins forces with TCM America to form UniCarriers Americas Corporation
April 1 marked the first day of business for UniCarriers Americas
Nissan Forklift Corp., North America, has joined forces with TCM America under a new name, UniCarriers Americas Corp. UniCarriers Americas Corp. is a division of UniCarriers Corp. headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. UniCarriers Holdings is the parent company of UniCarriers.
Although the company has a new name, its employees, processes and products remain the same. With head offices in Marengo, Ill., the new company will continue its commitment to excellence and its drive to be a valued partner across its network of authorized dealers.
“We are excited to combine the resources, service and strong brand promise of these two companies to form a stronger market presence that will offer a broader range of products and technical service with the UniCarriers brand,” says Peter Kruse, president, UniCarriers Americas Corp.
UniCarriers will encompass five brands: Nissan Forklift, TCM, Atlet, Barrett and UniCarriers. To transition the brand equity of the non-UniCarriers brands to UniCarriers, all trucks will display a “by UniCarriers” endorsement beginning June 1, 2013.
Material handling equipment will be the sole business of UniCarriers, rather than a peripheral business unit. Separately, the global rankings of Nissan Forklift Corp. and TCM Corp. were 11th and 15th respectively, according to the Weltrangliste 2011/2012 list of the top global manufacturers. United, UniCarriers has jumped to No. 7 on the list.
With its focus solely on material handling equipment, UniCarriers will offer a more extensive portfolio by adding additional sustainable and efficient products and solutions to its offering. The company will continue its pledge to protect the environment, and operate as a green company.
