Welcome to Cromer Material Handling

Hello, my name is Marshall Cromer. I'm "The Forklift Boss."
I have been in the Forklift Industry now for 35 years full time. 2014 we will be celebrating our 25 year anniversary with as Cromer Material Handling. The first quarter of 2014 we will be in two new stores, Manteca and West Sacramento.  We outgrew our old locations and are moving up.  Our Manteca operation will be on over an acre of land located on the 99 freeway.  Our customers will enjoy an entire new highly qualified staff for its parts, service and sales needs.  Most of our customers know me personally. We are in business to deliver exceptional customer service and make a profit doing that. Staying professional and keeping things simple has enabled our company to continue on an exceptional growth path. 2013 was a year in which we invested into our company to facilitate more future growth.  We invested in new updated computers and phones to deliver our products.  In 2014 we will continue to strive to give our current customers great service and gain new loyal customers - we have an extremely experienced staff that can meet the demands of any customer.  

We have drawn a lot of highly qualified people for finance, management, helping customers and working on forklifts.  Cromer Material Handling has full-service facilities in Oakland, Sacramento and Stockton. Plus satellite shops in Santa Rosa and Chico. We are an established Material Handling provider in all Northern California delivering outstanding products and services.

Industrial firms, manufacturers, warehouses - our locations allow us to serve customers like these all throughout Northern California. I'm truly fortunate to have a staff that understands the need to treat all customers with respect, and to deliver solutions which bring them cost savings.
