Best Line Equipment acquires Delaware Valley Lift Truck


Best Line Equipment acquired Delaware Valley Lift Truck Dec. 1, and is creating a new business and brand, which will operate as Best Line Material Handling.
For over 36 years, Delaware Valley Lift Truck has successfully provided equipment sales, service, parts, and rentals to industrial customers in the tri-state area of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, all managed from the company’s headquarters in Bensalem.
“Del Val” drove its success by focusing on forklifts, batteries and battery management systems, floor-care products, and warehouse solutions such as racking, shelving, modular offices, and storage solutions.
“It was important to us to secure the experience of the professionals that have driven this success for the past 36 years,” said Adam Houseknecht, president of Best Line Equipment.
“We’re thrilled Jack Meyer, Delaware Valley Lift Truck owner, sales and support staff, technicians, and parts staff are all staying on, and we’re committed to adding resources to meet the same level of service and responsiveness Best Line customers expect and rely on throughout all of our territories.”

Best Line Material Handling will operate from the facility at 1311 Ford Road, Bensalem, and will offer the same quality products without interruption from manufacturer relationships. It will continue to sell and service forklifts, batteries and chargers, power management systems, yard trucks, goosenecks, Mafi trailers, racking, floor care equipment, and more.
“Best Line has a history of being a Top 100 employer in Pennsylvania. We’re proud to join forces with an organization that invests in employees and equipment like Best Line,” said Meyer.
With a team of over 450 employees, Best Line Equipment, also founded in 1985, is an authorized dealer of major industry manufacturers including Bobcat, Doosan, and JLG.
