Big Joe Forklifts, Lombard, Ill., celebrated its 68th anniversary with the completion of its Wisconsin Dells, Wis., facility expansion.
The project included tripling the capacity of the loading dock, re-configuring and streamlining the manufacturing floor to increase throughput and expanding the engineering and general office areas. The construction was carried out in phases to minimize impact on forklift production.
Upon completion, the expansion grew throughput of the facility by roughly 2,500 units annually.
“Big Joe is not your typical lift truck manufacturer, and we enjoy being different,” says Dan Rosskamm, president. “We think differently, design differently and respond differently than our competitors.”
