Harrow, Ontario, Canada-based Sellick Equipment Limited has cut the ribbon on its new $21 million dollar manufacturing facility in Harrow.

The company indicates the new plant has “state-of-the-art technology to maintain Sellick as a leader in the rough-terrain forklift market.”

The 126,000-square-foot factory was designed for “new product innovation, improvement to quality control and flexibility in product design,” according to Sellick.

 “Our long-term plan is to increase the business through new product,” says Howard Sellick, the firm’s president. “The sky’s the limit on what we can produce in this new facility.”

As it nears its 50th year in business, Sellick Equipment Limited continues to produce a variety of rough-terrain forklifts, each custom built to meet a customer’s application and supported by a dedicated dealer network in North America, according to the company.

At the new plant, the manufacturing process was upgraded via a new machining center consisting of CNC controlled laser cutting, milling, and turning machines; automated storage and retrieval systems for raw materials and aftermarket parts; and a metal preparation and paint line implemented to enhance product longevity, according to Sellick.

Sellick Equipment Limited is a subsidiary of Upland, Indiana-based Avis Industrial Corp., along with recycling equipment companies American Baler Co. and Harris.
