Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas Inc. will run corporate operations for all forklifts offered by that Houston-based firm, which formerly included Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA) and UniCarriers Americas Corp. (UniCarriers) as separate operating units.
“Our goal is to have a stronger, more efficient business to support our customers and dealers,” says Ken Barina, president of Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas Inc. “As one unified operation, we will work together to further enhance our customer product offering and leverage the full strengths and experience of our collective employees and dealers to support customers in the future.”
Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas says it will continue to provide a range of material handling, automation and fleet services to customers across five brands: Cat lift trucks, Mitsubishi forklift trucks, UniCarriers, Jungheinrich and Rocla. The group will continue to operate its current distribution channels and manufacturing facilities located in Houston and in Marengo, Illinois.
“We know that customers today have high expectations and rising business demands, and we are excited to provide an even broader range of services and solutions to support them in the years ahead,” says Barina.
As part of the transition, the company has launched its new corporate website. “The new Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas group website provides visitors with the ability to view our complete product and solutions offering in one central place,” says John Sneddon, executive vice president, sales and marketing at the firm.
Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas is part of the global Mitsubishi Logisnext group based in Kyoto, Japan. Mitsubishi Logisnext is part of the larger Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) group.
