Since 1949, The Hite Company has provided a wide array of quality parts, components and finished products to electrical contractors, purchasing agents, builders, maintenance personnel, and end users in residential, commercial, industrial, institutional and governmental markets. With four distribution centres covering from 2,787 to 3,716 square metres (30,000 to 40,000 square feet) each, the company has expanded to 22 locations in Pennsylvania, New York and West Virginia.
With its markets and facilities expanding, The Hite Company needs durable and reliable equipment to move anything from light bulbs to heavy, bulky spools of cable, wire and conduit within the confines of its facilities. Unloading incoming shipments and meeting customer order deadlines is the key to continued growth, leaving no room for downtime. Facing increased demand for maintenance and unplanned down time with its existing lift truck fleet, The Hite Company looked for reliable and cost-effective alternatives.
