Forklifts made in Canada

There have been a number of forklift manufacturers with factories in Canada throughout the years.  Canada, with its close proximity to the large American market, historically offered low labor rates and an highly educated workforce.   The exchange rate between the US dollar and the Canadian dollar were attractive in years past, prompting some forklift manufacturers to set up shop in Canada.

Here’s a brief history of forklift manufacturers with operations in Canada:


Clark Material Handling:  Opened a forklift factory in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada in 1956. Forklift production ended 1985. 


Blue Giant:  Brampton, Ontario forklift factory opens 1963.   Still open in 2017.


Hyster:   a discontinued Toronto Canada factory is mentioned in their forklift specification manual but it’s unclear when this facility was operating.


Liftking is a manufacturer of rough terrain forklifts based in Woodbridge, Ontario.


Raymond Corporation operated a manufacturing plant in Brampton, Ontario.    The plant was opened in 1966.  Forklift factory closed around 2010-2011 time frame.


Sellick:  Manufacturer of rough terrain forklifts.  Started in Ontario in 1969, continues on to this day.


Skyjack:  Manufacturer of aerial work platforms.  Started in 1969 in Ontario.
