CLARK Material Handling Expands Standard Warranty

LEXINGTON, KY – April 1, 2021 – CLARK Material Handling Company, a top-ten global manufacturer of forklift trucks and spare parts, announces an expansion of the CLARK standard warranty for Carriage to Counterweight and Powertrain coverage for up to three years.

Specifically, beginning April 1, 2021 the CLARK Protection Plan standard warranty now covers:

  • Full “Carriage to Counterweight” for two years or 4,000 hours, whichever comes first.
  • Powertrain for three years or 6,000 hours, whichever comes first.

This warranty change actively demonstrates the high-quality engineering, manufacturing and componentry that goes into each CLARK product. This new and expanded “bumper to bumper” standard warranty ensures that when purchasing a CLARK product, it is indeed “Built to Last.”

“CLARK customers have come to expect the highest quality from their CLARK forklift. This new two-year/4,000-hour warranty is yet another way we’re standing behind the quality of our product and helping customers achieve their business and production goals,” noted Chuck Moratz, Senior Vice President of Engineering.

Intended to provide end-customers peace of mind when purchasing products for their business, the new CLARK Protection Plan two-year/4,000-hour warranty ensures that, on the off-chance, an electrical or mechanical issue arises with their CLARK forklift during that period, CLARK will be there for them.

To complement this expanded standard warranty, CLARK has also released new optional warranties for which information is available through CLARK dealers.

“In the Material Handling Industry, as with many industries, truck down time is a big issue – especially now with the consumer market as it is,” commented Moratz. “Our new and expanded warranty lets our customers know they can buy with confidence when they buy a CLARK. We stand with our customers as we are ‘Built to Last.’”

Valley Industrial Trucks is proud to partner with CLARK as a dealer in Youngstown, Akron and Canton areas. Since 1917, when CLARK invented the first “trucktractor” they have always been an innovative company that sought to improve the performance, ergonomics and safety of its products. This warranty enhancement makes a great product even better.
