For more than 80 years, conquering the world's most demanding applications
Hyster started as a manufacturer of lifting machines used in the rigorous logging industry of the United States' Pacific Northwest. The name originated from the call of the loggers who would shout "Hoist'er!" when a log was ready to be raised.
A few years later the first fork lift trucks were invented and the Hyster® brand quickly gained its reputation for rugged quality. For over eight decades Hyster Company has continuously developed its product offering and service network to become the leading international player it is today.
