Modern is back in the heavy construction equipment market.

It is just under one year since Modern Equipment & Supply took on the Hyundai line of construction equipment across our sales territory. In that short time we have seen an unbelievable acceptance to the Hyundai product by our customers, from contractors to state purchasers. Units across all classes have been moving through our shops and shipped to awaiting customers. Our service teams and parts operations has seen tremendous investment to meet this new demand: including the addition of two specialized Peterbilt service trucks.

Modern Group Signs Exclusive Dealer Agreement With BYD Forklifts

Leading Forklift Distributor Adds Revolutionary Iron Phosphate Powered Forklifts To Already Impressive Line-Up.

(Bristol, PA) Modern Group, Ltd and BYD Company, Ltd have announced a dealer agreement which grants Modern exclusive distribution of BYD Forklifts in the Mid-Atlantic. BYD is one of the largest publicity traded companies in The US and China and is the world leader in the emerging spaces of consumer, commercial and industrial electric vehicles. 60 percent of BYD’s stock is owned by US shareholders, the single largest being Berkshire-Hathaway. The BYD Forklift line is the first commercially available Li-Ion (iron phosphate) powered forklift in the North American market.

The result of years of research and development, this cutting edge battery technology represents a fundamental shift in how operations utilizing electric forklifts can operate. BYD Forklifts can be fully charged to capacity in just 90 minutes and producing 17 hours of continuous operating time. The iron phosphate battery, with a 10-year warranty, is housed in a self-contained module which does not need to be removed, maintained or serviced at any time by the owner. This not only brings dynamic capabilities during forklift operation but also a dramatically reduced total cost of ownership.

"BYD Forklifts are an industry-wide game changer" said Paul Farrell, President and CEO of Modern. "This battery technology turns the logistics of managing an electric forklift fleet on its head and delivers dramatic benefits to the customer. The addition of BYD Forklift further cements Modern as the leading forklift distributor in the Northeast."
