NACCO Materials Group


"ControlTek continually goes the extra mile for NACCO Materials Handling Group. When a key supplier to NACCO Materials Handling Group abruptly went out of business, ControlTek rallied. Remarkably, ControlTek had a never-seen-before assembly in production and delivered to NACCO Materials Handling Group just-in-time. ControlTek performed above and beyond our expectations of any supplier."
