Although it has been a tough economy for all of us, our employees have really stepped up to make a difference in our community. We’ve also had a great response from our vendors in support of this effort.”

Barclay represents Yale lift trucks, scissor lifts; racking systems; mezzanines; energy-saving industrial lighting; automated storage and warehouse management systems; safety training and accessories; rental equipment; replacement parts; and total fleet maintenance.
