MSE-Forks has announced the opening of a new fully owned subsidiary in the United States. MSE recently acquired the assets of Reachable Solutions, LLC which was originated by Mike Yacks in 2008. Mike and his wife, Jodi, have now joined the MSE team and will run the US operation under the new name, MSE-Forks, Inc.

Mike Yacks joins MSE with nearly 30 years of experience in the material handling industry and extensive experience with MSE products. Yacks has been involved with sales of MSE’s Kooi-ReachForks since 1989. He created Reachable Solutions in 2008 and became the exclusive US distributor for MSE. His previous experience included more than 20 years with Atlet and 5 years with BT, both forklift manufacturers. His wife Jodi joins the MSE team with 30 years of administration and finance expertise.

Sales of MSE products within the United States have increased dramatically over the past four years. “We’ve enjoyed an annual growth rate of over 35% since we began”, says Yacks, “and we don’t foresee it slowing down. After all, a weakened economy forces companies to take a closer look at the fundamental aspects of their operations and to seek out new ways to reduce costs.”

MSE-Forks, Inc. is based out of Western North Carolina and is situated to serve America’s primary industrial States as well as the growing Southeast automotive and distribution corridor. Plans are already in the works for hiring additional personnel to serve the country’s west coast.
