About Us


Yard Truck Specialists was founded in Bensalem, Pennsylvania in 1983 on a commitment to provide the highest quality products and service to its customers. We strive to be the yard truck equipment company-of-choice in the markets that we serve, and we are dedicated to maintaining our position as a leading supplier of Kalmar-Ottawa yard trucks and terminal tractor equipment.


Yard Truck Specialists has won the Kalmar-Ottawa President's Award for Parts Sales for the past 15 years, as well as the Director's Award for achieving over $1 million in parts sales every year from 2004 through 2015. Our commitment to total customer satisfaction has also earned us a consistent spot on the list of Top Three Kalmar-Ottawa Truck Sales Dealers.

In 2006, Yard Truck Specialists became part of the H&K Equipment Family of Companies. Together, the companies that comprise the H&K Family offer an incredibly diverse assortment of material handling equipment. From forklifts that range between 3,500 to 110,000 pounds in lifting capacity, to railcar moving equipment and personnel carriers, to overhead cranes and lifting magnets, to industrial floor sweepers and scrubbers, we provide the machines that power business. With access to one of the largest heavy lifting forklift rental fleets in the United States, and with corporate partners who share our passion and enthusiasm for our customers, the synergies between H&K Equipment and Yard Truck Specialists couldn’t be better.

In February, 2013, Yard Truck Specialists doubled its sales area to include the western half of Pennsylvania to become the only authorized Kalmar-Ottawa dealer for the entire state. We also represent regions in New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland while continuing to support thousands of customers located around the world.

Thank you for your interest in our company. We look forward to serving your needs. Please feel free to contact us for any additional information.
