About Independent Lift Truck Of Alaska
Independent Lift Truck Service was established in July of 1982, with John Dick as sole owner and operator. Shortly afterwards, family members Marlene, Gerry, and Wayne Dick joined the team to develop one of the strongest support teams for the forklift and material handling industry throughout the state of AK.
Business was primarily forklift parts, service, and used equipment sales in the Anchorage area. In 1984 ILTS began to sell new Mitsubishi forklifts, increasing revenue and establishing itself as a recognized dealership. By 1989 ILTS began furnishing financial programs for customers, boosting sales of new and used equipment.
In 1996, ILTS changed from A Sole Proprietorship, to Independent Lift Truck of Alaska, Inc. with Wayne Dick and Gerry Dick as the principal owners.
After studying the markets carefully ILTA started diversifying by selling equipment to a broader market share throughout the State of Alaska, due primarily to major lines represented such as Caterpillar, Mitsubishi, Maximal forklifts and then in to the construction and oilfield markets with GEHL, Wacker Neuson, Manitou and even more expansion even further into other equipment and product lines to better serve their clients. As the company has grown they have established a long list of valued and loyal customers in the timber, construction, mining, oilfield, warehousing, and fishing industries, throughout all of Alaska.
Independent Lift Truck of Alaska, Inc. has now established itself as the leading forklift dealership in the State of Alaska, winning “Best Dealer of The Year” 4 years straight by MCFA for selling CAT, Mitsubishi and Jungheinrich forklifts.
