Palfinger USA drops ‘PalFleet’ distribution name

PalFleet Truck Equipment Company is shedding its “PalFleet” name and will continue distribution operations under the name of parent company Palfinger USA.

The goal is to leverage the strength of the Palfinger name, products, sales and service under one single brand, the company says.

PalFleet was formed in 2010 following the 2008 acquisition of Omaha Standard, which integrated the Palfinger Group’s Tiffin Loader Crane Co. and Omaha Standard Distribution companies. Their various locations across the United States now offer sales and service support for Palfinger’s present product portfolio.

While the distribution name is shifting from PalFleet to Palfinger, the company says, all core elements will remain unchanged. Palfinger pledges to continue to place emphasis on strong partnerships with its independent distributors.
