Sellick Equipment Ltd. co-founders Howard and David Sellick have decided to retire after 53 years. The Harrow, Ontario-based business will be led by the third generation of the family with Colin Sellick’s promotion to president.

Howard and David Sellick co-founded the company with their late father, Walter Sellick, in 1968. The trio built the company into a leader in the forklift market, manufacturing a full range of rough-terrain and truck-mounted forklifts.

Sellick’s engineering, sales and service staff remain in place to continue supporting the company’s dealer network throughout North America.

Sellick Equipment is a subsidiary of Avis Industrial Corp. of Upland, Indiana. Avis subsidiaries include baler manufacturers Harris and American Baler.

Gregory King, Avis president and CEO, says, “We are grateful for Howard and David’s leadership and contributions to not only the organization but the industry. We look forward to the continued growth and expanded offerings of the Sellick line of equipment.”
