GREENVILLE, N.C. (April 20, 2018)  In recognition of its top performing dealers, Yale Materials Handling Corporation announces its 2017 Dealer of Excellence award recipients. Yale dealers play a critical role in driving maximum value for end-users through their materials handling expertise and responsive support.
