NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc. (NMHG), in cooperation with its local dealer, Papé Material Handling in Portland, has donated one of its Hyster electric reach trucks to the Portland Art Museum. Hyster Company donated the electric reach truck and Papé Material Handling, Inc. donated the battery and charging unit.

The Hyster electric reach truck will be used in the museum’s storage facility to help move and store the valuable works of art displayed at the museum.

“This is a small token of our appreciation that the Portland Art Museum brings to the community of Portland and the people of the Pacific Northwest.” said Jonathan Dawley, President of Hyster Distribution.

“Like our friends and partners at the Hyster Company, we too are members of this community and are happy to give back.” said Shirley Papé. “I am excited to know that it will be Papé
products that are helping to share these works of art with members of our community.”

“We are very grateful to Papé and Hyster Company for this donation,” said Beth Heinrich. “They are both wonderful corporate citizens. Thanks to them, we will safely and confidently be able to
move and lift precious works of art that we can share with our visitors.”

Founded in late 1892, the Portland Art Museum is the seventh oldest museum in the United States and the oldest in the Pacific Northwest. The museum is internationally recognized for its permanent collection and ambitious special exhibitions, drawn from the museum’s holdings and the world’s finest public and private collections.
