Alta Equipment Company® (Alta) and YES Equipment & Services, LLC (YES), announced today that they have signed a definitive agreement under which Alta acquired the assets of YES in Illinois, resulting in the appointment of Alta as the Yale® dealer in portions of the Chicagoland Market. Alta will integrate YES customers and services into its current operations as it looks to expand and grow its footprint in the Chicago metropolitan market.
“I am excited about this acquisition because metropolitan Chicago presents one of our greatest growth opportunities due to the size and density of the industrial truck market. Adding the Yale line to our existing product portfolio will bolster our position in the warehousing segment of the market,”says Ryan Greenawalt, President of Alta. “This is especially important as the Chicagoland market is one of the fastest growing areas for logistics and warehousing. Alta will now be able to leverage the strength of their product lineup and roll out a consistent strategy in all the markets we serve.”
