As of July 13, 2020, Eastern Lift Truck Co., Inc. (Eastern) finalized the purchase of McCall Handling Co. (McCall), one of the oldest Hyster® forklift dealerships in the country. As a result of the acquisition, Eastern now becomes the sole designated Hyster® forklift dealer (in addition to being the sole Yale® forklift dealer) in Maryland, Delaware, Washington D.C., Northern Virginia and Berkeley and Morgan counties, in the panhandle of West Virginia. Eastern was established in 1971 and is headquartered in Maple Shade, NJ.

Speaking of the acquisition, Dan Pruitt, President of Eastern Lift Truck Co. remarked: “Both companies have rich traditions and are completely dedicated to customer service. Similar to Eastern Lift Truck Co., many McCall employees have decades of industry experience and are material handling experts. We welcome these proud women and men to our Company. By combining our respective strengths, we will offer customers unparalleled support and expertise. Eastern Lift Truck Company looks forward to the opportunity to serve you.”

McCall Handling has served the Baltimore MD, West Virginia, Delaware, Washington DC, Northern Virginia and Eastern Shore areas for more than 70 years, from the time of their appointment as a Hyster Dealer in the fall of 1948 to 2020. McCall was headquartered at a 100,000 square-foot facility in Dundalk, MD and had 4 other locations: Delmar DE, Chantilly, VA, Forestville, MD and Williamsport, MD.

Eastern will move its Baltimore operations to McCall’s former facility at 8801 Wise Ave. Suite #200, Dundalk, MD 21222 and convert 2211 Sulphur Spring Rd., Halethorpe, MD 21227 into a hub for its growing dock and door division. The toll-free phone for the Baltimore (Dundalk) branch will remain (800) 247-6404.

We are thrilled to join our winning teams and offer our customers solutions for their material handling and warehouse storage needs, today, tomorrow and for years to come. Thank you for the opportunity to serve your needs.
