Tri-Lift acquires Vantage Equipment

By Lindsey AndersonJanuary 04, 2021

Connecticut-based Tri-Lift Inc. has finalized its purchase of Vantage Equipment LLC’s material handling group. Vantage Equipment had been a CAT Lift Trucks and Jungheinrich Forklift dealer covering 18 counties in central New York.

The acquisition expands Tri-Lift’s CAT Lift Trucks and Jungheinrich service territory from its current footprint consisting of Connecticut, Western Massachusetts, Vermont, Eastern New York from Long Island and New York City in the south all the way to the Canadian border in the north. The company provides service in these areas with three full-service facilities and a fourth facility in Liverpool, NY (to be completed soon.) 

“I am excited about the opportunity to welcome the dedicated employees of Vantage Material Handling equipment into the Tri-Lift, Inc family,” said Anthony Murgo, vice president of Tri-Lift Inc. “Together we will build upon the traditions of both companies and provide a level of customer service unmatched by anyone else.”

Tri-Lift Inc. has also been appointed as the Mitsubishi Forklift authorized dealer for the same 18 counties in central New York. 

Tri-Lift Inc. is headquartered in New Haven, CT and has been servicing the material handling industry in the Northeast for more than 53 years.
