Dominik Vierkotten, Area Business Director

“Thanks to a close collaboration with our dealers and customers, modern processes such as “blueprinting”, a very experienced development team and innovative ideas from universities and scientists, we are able to develop our products in such a way that they optimally meet the individual requirements of our customers and can be seamlessly integrated into their processes. With this approach as well as the high professional competence, Yale is well prepared for the future – even in the demanding German market.”


In October 2016, Yale Europe Materials Handling celebrated its 20th anniversary in the German market. In 1996 the first subsidiary was founded in Duisburg. But even before this time, Yale was successfully established in the German market, and some of today’s dealers have been Yale partners since the beginning. This is due in particular to the fact that Yale has always had a cooperative relationship with its dealers and cooperates closely with them, as they maintain direct contact with the customers and have a deep knowledge of the market.

In Germany, the Yale brand is represented by Hyster-Yale Deutschland GmbH in Neu-Isenburg, which works with a total of 18 independent dealers, who provide expert advice and a comprehensive service around Yale trucks.
