LiuGong North America Appoints EFR Material-Handling Equipment Dealer in New Jersey

LiuGong North America (LiuGong NA) announced the appointment of EFR Corporation, known locally as “the Forklift People,” as its material-handling dealer, located in Somerset, New Jersey. Electric Forklift Repair was incorporated in 1987 as a one-man shop, and the company grew to sell and rent a full range of material-handling equipment.

EFR first noticed LiuGong forklifts at the 2016 Promat conference. After some discussion, EFR found that LiuGong equipment could match any of the top-line global brands, and at a lower total cost of ownership.

“We are very happy with the partner type of relationship and the solid backing we have from LiuGong NA. Their service department is very responsive, and when a problem does arise, they are right on top of it,” said Raul Pretto, co-owner, EFR. “One time we had one of those rare situations where a part for an electric pallet jack was needed right away, and they got that part to us in 18 hours.”

“Besides forklifts, our customers really like the LiuGong electric pallet jacks. They’ve been a big seller for us already. Our clients say they have great maneuverability, and they also like the key fob on/off feature and how long the lithium-ion battery lasts,” said Philip Pretto, operations manager, EFR.
