Mariotti, which manufactures forklifts of the same name, is celebrating its 100th business anniversary in 2020. This respected Italian company fills a niche in the material handling industry by offering forklifts with a compact design, state-of-the-art technology and workmanship.

The company was founded in 1920 by Vasco Mariotti and for more than 50 years, specialized in industrial services and solutions, from packaging to handling, transport, and stacking equipment.

In 1973 new owners stepped in, bringing with them a new mission — to invest specifically in the compact forklift sector and expand internationally. Sales spread around the globe and today Mariotti sells forklifts in more than 40 countries, across all five continents. In the United States, sales and marketing are handled by Mariotti USA Inc.

Mariotti forklifts are available in various load capacities, from as little as 750 pounds to 3,000 pounds. They are adept in warehouses as well as production facilities. Their compact design enables them to maneuver in tight spaces, drive through standard office doorways, and on mezzanines. They are even light enough to ride in certain elevators! Yet, these versatile "mini forklifts," are rugged enough to withstand the rigors of daily full-time operation. Mariotti forklifts are small but mighty and go where other front-loading forklifts normally just cannot go. They provide excellent ergonomics, reliability, productivity and savings in terms of space, time and money. Operators love them.

Backed by 100 years of innovation and performance excellence, Mariotti offers a variety of versatile forklifts:

  • Mycros Series – available in rear-wheel drive (RWD) on one wheel, front-wheel drive (FWD) on two wheels, and all-wheel drive (AWD) on three wheels. Provides the needed traction for any application
  • ME Series – for lower-hour operations / offers budget savings
  • MX Series – most powerful series – 48V power supply
  • Mini Series – designed for unique applications
  • MIP Series – compact stand-up riders (coming in 2021)

Founded in 1971, Eastern Lift Truck Co. is an award-winning material handling and storage solutions provider with approximately 1,000 employees in seven states. The company is proud to be an authorized Mariotti distributor and was recently awarded an expanded sales territory based on its past success in sales and aftermarket support. Eastern Lift Truck Co. is now the authorized Mariotti dealer for Maryland and Washington D.C.
