Hiab will expand its manufacturing to the USA with a second production facility in Streetsboro, Ohio, and increase its production capacity in Dundalk, Ireland, too, where the company has planned a new multi-assembly unit.

“With the increased demand for our truck mounted forklift products in the US, we are excited to start manufacturing in Ohio.

“This will allow us to provide reduced lead times to our customers, additional capacity for growth, and reduce CO2 emissions associated with transportation,” said James Oreck, vice president of sales and services, North Americas, Hiab.
