Eastern Lift Truck Company: Branch in the Spotlight
We want to take a moment to shine a light on one of our newest branches: Piscataway, NJ.
Two years ago, after being named the Hyster dealer for New Jersey, Eastern Lift Truck Co. opened a new branch in Piscataway, NJ. We were new to the territory and had nothing but an empty building; no employees, inventory or customers. In just two years, this branch has become a vibrant workplace for nearly 100 employees with a steady and growing customer base.
Our Piscataway branch is the authorized Hyster forklift distributor for central and northern New Jersey, as well as four counties and one borough in New York. Bill Shaw is the Regional Sales Manager for a highly tenured sales team. Kevin Caggiano, Branch Manager, Ruth Collins, Service Manager and Joey Cantagallo, Parts Manager, oversee the operation.
The branch’s sales and service area includes: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset and Union Counties in New Jersey and Orange, Rockland, Staten Island, Sullivan and Ulster Counties in New York.
Like every other Eastern Lift Truck Co. location, Piscataway is “full-service and customer-focused,” offering new and used equipment leasing and sales, rentals, parts, service, fleet, dock, door and warehouse products, baler and compactor sales and service, and OSHA-compliant training.
The Piscataway group hosted a Hyster Invitation to Compare Event in late September, inviting customers to a side-by-side comparison of Hyster XT and Toyota 7-Series pneumatic-tire forklifts.
Also in October, industry-veteran Michael Murgo was hired as General Manager to oversee the Piscataway branch and manage its growth.
Congratulations to the entire Piscataway team for continuing to do a great job serving the needs of our customers.
