Walter Sellick along with sons Howard Sellick, president, David Sellick- vice president, and grandson Colin Sellick, systems manager, broke ground on April 20 for its new Sellick Equipment manufacturing facility.
The new, multi-million dollar, 120,000-square-foot facility will manufacture rough terrain and truck-mounted forklifts.
“In order to compete on a global scale, we needed to expand and build a state-of-the-art plant,” said Howard Sellick.
Sellick Equipment has been manufacturing for more than 47 years and the company supplies a variety of industries including building supply yards, engineered wood products, automotive recycling, oil field services, mining and military applications.
In recent years, a new generation of forklifts was introduced featuring enhanced ergonomics, environmentally-friendly diesel engines and increased lift capacities.
The company's products are supported by a nationwide dealer network providing superior parts and service needs.
