Yale Materials Handling Corporation introduced a factory-backed Certified Remanufactured Program at last week’s ProMat 2013 show. Select Yale dealers will be authorized to offer certified remanufactured Yale lift trucks that will be available with a one-year, 2,000-hour warranty.

“With Yale Certified Remanufactured trucks, our customers get more than just a truck they get the complete Yale experience,” said Bill Pfleger, president of Yale Distribution. “This program demonstrates the promise Yale makes to go beyond our products to our commitment to support customers with the best service in the industry. Customers no longer need to sacrifice service or productivity for a lower price since a Yale Certified Remanufactured truck will give greater access to a quality Yale lift truck at another price point.”

To qualify as a certified product, pre-owned lift trucks must pass a pre-selection quality checklist to enter the remanufacturing process. Trained technicians are required to perform a 200-point inspection and replace key parts. Other parts will be inspected and replaced as needed. Yale dealers use genuine Yale parts for the remanufacturing process as these parts are designed specifically for Yale lift trucks and meet stringent standards for performance, fit and durability.

In light of the growth of e-commerce-and the fact that consumers and businesses are buying again, many of the discussions that we had at ProMat 2015 didn't revolve around the products and the equipment on display as much as it did the supplemental technology and solutions that are designed to optimize systems in an effort to work "smarter."
