Forklift giant plans to integrate five brands within the Americas.

Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas Inc., the parent company for Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA) and UniCarriers Americas Corp. (UniCarriers), has announced its plan to integrate these group company operations within the Americas. With more than 100 years of combined experience, the Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas group will provide a full range of material handling, automation and fleet solutions across five brands: Cat lift trucks, Mitsubishi forklift trucks, UniCarriers, Jungheinrich and Rocla.

“Our goal is to have a stronger, more efficient business to support our customers and dealers,” says Ken Barina, president of Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas Inc. “As one unified operation, we will work together to further enhance our customer product offering and leverage the full strengths and experience of our collective employees and dealers to support customers in the future.”

The group will continue to go to market utilizing current distribution channels and manufacturing facilities located in both Houston, Texas, and Marengo, Ill.

As part of this transition, the company has launched a new corporate website. The site houses its complete portfolio of brands under one roof, including Cat lift trucks, Mitsubishi forklift trucks, UniCarriers, Jungheinrich and Rocla product lines.

With the growing trend towards automation and digital fleet management solutions, the site will provide educational resources and the ability to connect to Mitsubishi Logisnext’s team.

One of the largest lift truck providers globally, Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas is part of the global Mitsubishi Logisnext group—Mitsubishi Logisnext Co. Ltd.—based in Kyoto, Japan. Mitsubishi Logisnext is also part of one of the world’s largest companies, the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) group, whose engineering heritage dates back to 1870.
