The Yale Advantage

YIT counts over 175 employees, 5 locations and many satellite branches across Ontario and Quebec. 

YIT’s story began in 1972 with 28 employees, an acquired Montreal dealership and an entrepreneurial spirit. Through hard work, teamwork and dedication, we quickly grew from a new forklift and used forklift dealership to a 
full-service company. 

We are proud to be Ontario and Quebec’s one-stop-shop for all material handling needs.

Going Green

We are proud to be one of the largest producers of zero emissions electric lift trucks in the North American Market. However, we understand that electric lift trucks may not be the best solution for your situation.

To offset emissions from your day to day operations, YIT has pledged to plant five trees through Tree Canada, on your company’s behalf, for every ICE truck purchased. Our goal is to provide cleaner air for our fellow Canadians of today and tomorrow.

Additionally, our partnership with Nuvera ensures that even after a lift truck is purchased, it continues to benefit the environment. With no emissions or off-gassing and no chemicals needed for battery washing, Nuvera improves the workplace and promotes long-term productivity and sustainability.

Trusted Yale Brand

The Yale brand is known and acknowledged for its high-quality design considerations and top-notch service, and manufacturing efforts.
