Shoppa’s Material Handling is pleased to announce the celebration of their 30-year milestone as a Toyota Industrial Equipment dealer. The forklift dealership has been bringing innovative material handling, distribution and warehousing products to the North Texas marketplace for over three decades.
Founded in 1981, Shoppa’s established itself as a used equipment sales and material handling service company, but quickly built a customer service-oriented operation and became the exclusive authorized Toyota dealer for Tarrant County. Through the years the company continued to grow and now has nine locations throughout North Texas and Kansas City, Missouri.
“It is so nice to be recognized by Toyota for this 30-year milestone of working together to meet the material handling application needs of our customers,” stated Jim L. Shoppa, President, Shoppa’s Material Handling. “We have sold and helped maintain thousands of Toyota forklifts but more important are the valuable partnerships we have developed with our customers to not only meet but exceed their material handling and logistics needs,” he added.
Today, Shoppa’s Material Handling is one of the largest and fastest growing dealerships in the country. In addition to their anchor Toyota brand, the company now represents a comprehensive line of industrial and warehouse equipment brands, including aerial equipment by Genie and JLG, very narrow aisle (VNA) forklifts by Bendi and Drexel, floor cleaning sweepers and scrubbers by Advance, utility and personnel carrier vehicles by E-Z-GO, Cushman and SunEV as well as pallet rack by Interlake.
Shoppa’s Material Handling, a 13-time recipient of the prestigious Toyota President’s Award, is currently working together with Toyota on their 2020 Vision of doubling in size. There are nearly 400 employees throughout the Fort Worth-headquartered company. The dealership has purchased a 5-acre site for the building of a new larger facility in Amarillo. In addition, the remodeling of their Saginaw location into a full service Toyota forklift dealership is nearly complete to better serve Shoppa’s expanding customer base.
To mark this major milestone for the Toyota forklift dealership, Shoppa’s will be celebrating this year with exclusive customer events and promotions.
