We are proud to announce that we are now a BYD forklift dealer!


LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (4/7/2021) – BYD Material Handling has entered into a dealership agreement with LiftTruck Parts and Service Inc. expanding its presence into Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

LiftTruck Parts and Service Inc. has two sales and service locations in West Springfield and Brockton, Massachusetts.

LiftTruck Parts and Service was founded in 1987 by Mario A. Sotolotto. The Sotolotto family has been in the material handling industry since Sotolotto’s father-in-law, Toimi “Red” Tammi, started in 1968. Now 53 years later, Tammi’s grandchildren, Mario C. Sotolotto and Kara T. Sotolotto are proud to be bringing the industry into a new era with BYD’s green initiative.

LiftTruck Parts and Service is committed to the highest standard of customer service and looks forward to this new partnership.

“Partnering with LiftTruck will bring BYD’s clean, innovative technology to customers in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. This technology will improve their production and help their bottom line,” said Terry Rains, Director of BYD North America’s Forklift Division. “LiftTruck is an ideal partner for BYD, bringing a strong focus on customer service and decades of industry experience.”

BYD’s material handling equipment simplifies operations by delivering a single-battery multi-shift solution. Spare batteries, cooling down batteries, and battery swapping are a thing of the past.  BYD forklifts charge to full in under 90 minutes and run for up to 15-plus hours. When using opportunity charging, on breaks and downtime, your operation can truly run for 24 hours without thinking about batteries.

Unlike Lead-Acid batteries, and some “drop-in” lithium-ion batteries, BYD’s Iron Phosphate batteries feature high energy density while remaining environmentally friendly. There is no need for special ventilation requirements, watering infrastructure, or corrosion control.

As a first in the industry, BYD also offers a 110v / 15-amp plug-in charger capable of recharging its Iron Phosphate batteries. Because the Iron-Phosphate battery handles opportunity charging easily, you can even plug it in like you would your cell phone.


The Official Sponsor of Mother Nature™, BYD, which stands for Build Your Dreams, is the world’s leading electric vehicle company with proven innovative technology for cars, buses, trucks, forklifts, and rail systems – like SkyRail. BYD is dedicated to creating a truly zero-emission ecosystem offering technology for solar electricity generation, energy storage to save that electricity, and battery-electric vehicles powered by that clean energy. Globally, BYD is committed to corporate social responsibility, monitoring our supply chain in terms of human rights, environmental safety, hazardous substance control and intellectual property rights. We select only suppliers who share our commitment to labor practices, human rights standards and the environment. BYD has 220,000 employees across the globe, including nearly 1,000 in North America.
