Originally started in 1969, Walter Sellick along with sons Howard and David converted a Ford 4500 industrial tractor into a 6,000 lb forklift for outdoor use. From simple tractor conversions in the early 1970’s, growth for Sellick Equipment escalated with the development of the integral one-piece frame. The design could accommodate various industrial power trains which lead to brand manufacturing for John Deere and International Harvester.
In recent years a new generation of forklifts was introduced featuring enhanced ergonomics, environment friendly diesel engines, increased lift capacities, and a broad range of models.
Currently, there are over 11,000 Sellick built machines in the field which are serviced by an extensive North American dealer network consisting of 230 locations.
