Taylor International and Taylor International de Mexico will now be part of the Taylor Group of Companies in the US.
Taylor International has announced changes to its structure as it looks to expand its overseas sales and service. Taylor International was previously a separate company from the Taylor Group, managed by industry veteran and President Doug Hulse. From 1 September Taylor International, along with Taylor International de Mexico, is part of the Taylor Group of companies, the well-known liftruck manufacturer from Mississippi that is owned by the Taylor family.
In a statement Taylor International said the change will enable it to “bring a new line of products to the world market and deliver a new emphasis on Taylor service, sales and support”. Taylor Machine Works continues to expand its product range, and recently added a new series of wheel loaders with grapple attachments for log handling.
“Taylor is excited about our new international focus. We are proud that these Taylor professionals are joining our family in an even stronger bond than before. Our aim is to take this new opportunity to a whole new level in customer support and service. We want to especially thank Doug and Adam Hulse for their intense support in the international market over the past years, and we wish them the best for the future,” said Robert Taylor, President and COO of the Taylor Group of Companies.
Doug Hulse, former President of Taylor International, stated, “It’s been a fantastic career working with the Taylor family and the Taylor “Big Red” team! Starting in 1983, the people that we’ve met and the countries that we worked in while developing sales channels and distribution around the world have been quite the journey for the Taylor International team.”
Taylor machines can be found in ports and in South America, Central America, Southeast Asia and the Caribbean Islands and in steel mills and industrial applications from Mexico to the Middle East and Africa. In many cases the “Big Red” machines have followed US companies that have a long standing relationship with Taylor in the US as they have expanded overseas.
“I am very excited about Taylor International and Taylor de Mexico coming under the umbrella of The Taylor Group of Companies. Taylor is inheriting a group of material handling specialists that are second to none. I look forward to working with this group to continue to grow the international market and better serve our customers in the marketplace,” said Hal Nowell, Director of Sales.
