Hyster Forklift's history began back in 1929, when the Willimette Ersted Company was formed. The company originally manufactured winches and logging carriers from its headquarters in Portland, Oregon. The company built its first forklift truck in 1935. Further development led to a Jumbo 7 ton, "Handy Andy," and and "Handy Harry" models. In 1944, the company changed its name to Hyster, and subsequent post-WWII years saw the company build new factories in Danville, Illinois; Nijmegen, The Netherlands; Irvine, Scotland; and many more locations.

Lighting on a forklift is essential for the safety of the forklift, its driver, and its surroundings, including any other workers or pedestrians in the vicinity of the forklift. OSHA states that forklifts must be equipped with headlights where lighting is less than two lumens per square foot. For an easier explanation, forklifts should have headlights if working at night or outdoors. A major factor to accidents in the workplace is due to blind spots between pedestrians and forklifts. This risk is only increased in a fast paced workplace. Additional lighting such as strobe lights are not required but can greatly reduce the possibility of injury due to accident. At Intella, we sell only the highest quality lights to keep your workplace safe.
