Hoist evolved from humble beginnings. In 1980, Marty Flaska started ForkliftExchange from his house in the western suburbs of Chicago, specializing in buy-ing, selling and renting material han-
dling equipment. Over the nextdecade, the company grew tremen-dously, and in 1994, Flaska acquiredthe rights to build cushion-tire forkliftsfrom Brooklyn, New York-based Silent
Hoist and Crane. Moving the businessto Addison, Illinois, Flaska trans-formed Silent Hoist and Crane intoHoist Liftruck Mfg., Inc. In a few years,Hoist became the preferred vendor for high-capacity cushion-tire forklifts for the
automotive, steel and aluminum industries.In 1998, Hoist moved its operations to its current location in Bedford Park, Illinois toaccommodate its expansion, with Hoist acquiring Cleveland, Ohio-based Elwell-Parker in 2000, and Bucyrus, Ohio-based Schreck and Autolift in 2001. - Steel Receiving- Welding- Blast Cabinet- Painting
