FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – CLARK Material Handling Co. announced the expansion of its Lexington headquarters, a $4.6 million investment that will create 40 jobs.
Officials say this expansion is the third in four years at CLARKs North American corporate headquarters in Lexington. Company leaders expect the investment to triple production at the campus. In conjunction with this expansion, CLARK will begin re-shoring to Lexington production of its mainstay internal combustion products, the S-Series, with volume production expected this summer.
CLARK has produced more than 1 million forklifts since 1917, when the company helped establish the material handling industry by starting production of the first gasoline-powered material handling truck. CLARK opened its Kentucky facility in 1974 and relocated its company headquarters to Lexington in 1985.
