Electric vehicle manufacturer BYD (Build Your Dreams) announced plans to continue the expansion of its growing North American operations by adding a forklift center in Southern California.
The company will open a 50,000-square-foot facility, including offices, warehouse, and demonstration space, in Rancho Dominguez dedicated to BYD-built forklifts.
“As we grow, we want to continue to bring our innovative technology closer to our customers,” said Stella Li, President of BYD North America.
BYD’s newest California facility offers warehouse space for products and parts, modern offices, and facilities for demos and training. The center, which will open later this year, will be located at 18910 South Wilmington Avenue.
“This expansion will help us build and strengthen our relationships and give us an important opportunity to showcase the variety of top-notch material handling equipment built by BYD,” said Terry Rains, Director of BYD’s North American Forklift Division. “BYD has been revolutionizing the material handing market and our extraordinary technology turns the industry inside-out by delivering a single-battery multi-shift solution.”
BYD forklifts can fully charge in under 90 minutes.
