MSE-Forks is proud to announce the opening of a new fully owned subsidiary in the United States of America. MSE recently acquired the assets of Reachable Solutions, LLC which was originated by Mike Yacks in 2008. Mike and his wife, Jodi, have now joined the MSE team and will run the US operation under the new name, MSE-Forks, Inc.
Mike Yacks joins our organization having nearly 30 years of experience within the material handling industry, plenty of which has been with our products. Mike has been involved with sales of Kooi-ReachForks® since 1989! He created Reachable Solutions in 2008 and became the exclusive US distributor for MSE. Mike’s previous experience included over 20 years with Atlet and 5 years with BT, both forklift manufacturers. His wife Jodi joins our team with 30 years of administration and finance expertise. We’re pleased to have them working directly for our organization.
Sales of MSE products within the United States have increased dramatically over the past four years. “We’ve enjoyed an annual growth rate of over 35% since we began”, says Yacks, “and we don’t foresee it slowing down. After all, a weakened economy forces companies to take a closer look at the fundamental aspects of their operations and to seek out new ways to reduce costs. Products such as telescopic Kooi-ReachForks®, which can be used to increase storage density using conventional lift trucks or for multi-pallet transport, can help these companies drastically reduce their operational costs without heavy investment”.
MSE-Forks, Inc. is based out of Western North Carolina and is situated to serve America’s primary industrial States as well as the growing Southeast automotive and distribution corridor. Plans are already in the works for hiring additional personnel to serve the countries west coast.
