Palfinger Expands North America Presence

Palfinger Expands North America Presence

Palfinger is fundamentally renewing its North American footprint through a series of strategic decisions aimed at becoming the leading provider of innovative, integrated lifting solutions in the region. 

To further expand its North American presence, Palfinger will open its regional headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois in the second quarter of 2023. The company is creating additional jobs at the new location with an integrated demonstration and training center. The management team is led by Ismael Daneluz, vice president of sales and service North and Latin America.

The company says it will be hiring many more attractive positions for specialists and management in the coming years.

“We are here to stay. We are making this clear with the opening of our new headquarters in 2023. Supported by our absolute focus on our customers, we will use the next five years to significantly grow our market share in all product segments. At ConExpo-Con/Agg, we are showing what we can do,” said Daneluz.

Smart Solutions

Palfinger combines physical and digital applications to offer its customers hardware and software from a single source as well as highly connected, individually configured products. In doing so, the company is creating an offering geared towards the North American market that significantly increases functionality and added value.

In 2022, the new generation of FHS truck-mounted forklifts were launched. Purpose-built to handle the specific applications and needs of the North American market, this product line includes a full range of forklifts in various configurations.

To strengthen and expand the aerial work platform product line globally, Palfinger is also investing in solutions that are specifically designed for the needs of the customers in North America.
