Dec. 4, 2003
Yale, Hyster lift trucks will feature emission-compliant engines

IMPCO Technologies Inc. has earned a new three-year supply agreement with NACCO Materials Handling Group, one of the leading lift truck manufacturers. IMPCO will supply NMHG with CARB and U.S. EPA 2004 emission-compliant engines for industrial forklifts marked as the Hyster and Yale brands.

The company says the agreement will exceed $25 million in its first year.

The engines will meet the EPA's new 2004 emission requirements, using IMPCO's patented Spectrum electronic emissions-control and fueling system. Spectrum technology incorporates a number of advanced features, including speed control, engine protection, computer assisted throttle control, and diagnostics.

Brad Garner, IMPCO v.p. and CEO, "We have worked very closely with NMHG in developing a CARB and U.S. EPA emission-compliant engine family, that is versatile and flexible in meeting the high expectations of NMHG and their Hyster and Yale customers. We feel that this agreement strongly establishes IMPCO as the market leader in the emission certified engine business."
