Marty Flaska started Forklift Exchange out of his garage in 1980 with the help from his younger brother, Mike Flaska. Both Flaska men grew up watching and assisting their father in his small forklift repair shop, learning the ins and outs of the material handling machinery. With a strong foundation, the Flaska brothers were able to quickly develop a strong customers base, allowing the company to outgrow both the garage and three suburban locations in less than 25 years.
Forklift Exchange now operates in several states nationwide. The company’s expertise in the wholesale of material handling equipment and high-capacity forklifts spans across a wide array of lines from Hoist Liftruck, Toyota, Taylor, Kalmar and every brand of unit in-between.
We’ve perfected the wholesale model by bringing equipment into our facility, where a team of in-house technicians are available 24/7. Cutting out the need for a middleman has provided us complete control over the rebuild process to the final sale.
