Arrow Material Handling Products continues its growth by remaining agile, adapting quickly to change, capitalizing on core competencies and focusing on unparalleled quality. Today’s company traces its roots back to 1969, when founded as Arrow Forklift Parts Inc. with headquarters in the Blue Valley industrial area on Kansas City’s east side.
The company has grown significantly over the years and transformed into a professional group that markets a broad line of forks and attachments, thriving on superior availability, customer service and a sense of urgency for customers! Arrow offers forks and attachments for most model Forklifts (Class 1-5), skid-steers, loaders, telehandlers, excavators, tractors and backhoes; including mini, compact, medium and large equipment.
The team’s quality policy is easy to remember: it is simply “Delight the Customer”! There is no need to compromise safety or equipment utility as it remains our goal to continually push the envelope and introduce new, innovative products designed to improve safety and reduce customer “total cost of ownership.”
As Arrow has continued to evolve over the years from a supplier of parts into an attachments powerhouse, the company changed its name from Arrow Forklift Parts to Arrow Material Handling Products, better reflecting current positioning and product offerings. Arrow has engineering and design teams, machining centers and welding teams to accommodate and build custom attachments that fit an ever-changing menu of products for common and unique applications. Using Solid Works 3D CAD software and Finite Element Analysis (FEA), the Arrow team can collaborate in and accommodate a variety of formats.
The company moved in 2012, from its original location since 1969 on Kansas City’s east side – to a larger, modern manufacturing facility in Lenexa, KS. Arrow now has five distribution centers: Lenexa, KS, Houston, TX, Norfolk, VA, Riverside, CA, and Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
