Palfinger purchases facility

Palfinger, a leading truck equipment manufacturer employing more than 1,000 employees across North America, has officially grounded its roots in Tiffin by purchasing the property and building in Tiffin Dec. 27.

Tiffin Loader Crane began selling and installing knuckle boom cranes in 1985 and built a reputation for developing solutions to their customers’ material handling needs. Palfinger stated in a release Tiffin Loader Crane has become “a world-class installation and distribution center – the leading example of a successful Palfinger dealer.”

The Tiffin location also serves as a manufacturing site for the new Palfinger GT brand of truck-mounted forklifts.

The relationship between Palfinger and Tiffin Loader Crane dates to 1991, when Tiffin Loader Crane became the largest independent dealer for Palfinger. Palfinger acquired the company in 2000, making Tiffin its U.S. home. Now, Palfinger owns the Tiffin Loader Crane facility.
