The UniCarriers Story


On April 1, 2013 Nissan Forklift Corporation, North America announced that it has joined forces with TCM America under the new name, UniCarriers Americas Corporation. UniCarriers Americas Corporation is a division of UniCarriers Corporation headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

Although the company features a new name, its high-quality processes and best-in-class products remain the same. With head offices in Marengo, Ill., the new company will continue its commitment to excellence and its drive to be a valued partner across its network of authorized dealers.

"We are excited to combine the resources, service and strong brand promise of these two companies to form a stronger market presence that will offer a broader range of products and technical service with the UniCarriers brand," said Peter Kruse, president, UniCarriers Americas Corporation. Kruse is leading the management team of the new entity.

UniCarriers will encompass five brands: Nissan Forklift, TCM, Atlet, Barrett and UniCarriers. To transition the brand equity of the non-UniCarriers brands to UniCarriers, all trucks will display a "by UniCarriers" endorsement beginning June 1, 2013.
