North Coast Truck Body Announces Harsh Hoists Inventory Expansion

February 05, 2009 - Press Release

JEFFERSON, OHIO - North Coast Truck Body (NCTB) announces an agreement with Harsh International to stock a complete inventory of Harsh Hoists at their warehouse facility located in northeast Ohio.

This relationship allows North Coast Truck Body customers to purchase their unit complete with a Harsh hoist at very competitive prices.

All Harsh inventories stocked at NCTB meet the requirements of National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) class ratings B/10 thru L125.

Harsh International is a world leader in truck hydraulics and was one of the first companies to introduce “under-floor” tipping gears. The Harsh Hoist design is founded on two basic requirements: Stability and Reliability. North Coast Truck Body integrates a variety of Harsh Hoists into their truck building. “In addition to competitive pricing, our large inventory enables us to have the parts we need for quick delivery of the finished product to our customers.” says Rick Sippola, President of North Coast Truck Body.

Harsh Hoists are known for their strength and stability. Because Harsh picks up by the width of the chassis and body runners, much as a weight lifter would, Harsh Hoists can control uneven loads efficiently, eliminating stresses found in a chassis and body during operation. Harsh has been in continuous development and manufacturing for over 56 years. The expertise and patented technology is only available from Harsh International.
