Columbia Industrial Vehicles

Since 1946, Columbia has been manufacturing industrial vehicles, making Columbia the most experienced producer of industrial vehicles in the United States. Columbia vehicles are American Made and designed in Reedsburg Wisconsin by teams that focus on quality components with regards to the environment. Some of the differences you will experience with Columbia Industrial Vehicles Include:

  • Steel frames and bodies that utilize thicker gauged steel (longer-life)
  • The most robust drive motor (better operation in hot/harsh environments)
  • The most efficient power control system (more usable range on a charge)
  • The most efficient charger (less energy used to charge vehicle)Intelligent energy recovery braking (wasted energy recycled to recharge batteries)
  • Easily programmable performance characteristics (only energy actually needed is expended)

While all of Columbia’s vehicles are designed to operate as efficiently as possible in their respective environments, vehicles that will be operated on public roads meet or exceed all applicable NHTSA standards. Columbia has received the highest rating possible, a 10 out of 10, for our global warming and smog scores on the environmental performance label issued by CARB (California Air Resource Board). This is significant, as a typical internal combustion vehicle only receives a 5 out of 10 for both these ratings.

People need to get where they are going quickly to keep things running smoothly. You may need to move one key employee around a large plant quickly or move 14 guests around your amusement park or zoo. We have an electric vehicle that can handle that and everything in between. If you have personnel walking when they should be riding, you are wasting money. Forklifts are not the ideal piece of machinery to tow materials or other equipment around your facility. We offer highly maneuverable tow platforms for loads of up to 14,000 lbs. If you are looking to pull a small utility trailer, or maybe an empty semi trailer, we’ve got you covered. Use the right tool for the job and save money while you are at it.Our vehicle line can carry loads up to 6000 lbs. indoors and out. If you need to move a heavy load in tight quarters, we can handle up to 1200 lbs. down aisles just 30 inches wide. Pure electric power means there is no emission or noise pollution to worry about. Make one of our burden carriers an integral part of your material handling system.Your job requires you to be versatile, so you need a vehicle to match. Columbia’s line of utility vehicles is the Swiss army knife of transportation. Move cargo around a nursery in the morning and carry customers and their purchases to their cars in the afternoon. When your transportation needs are a mix of passengers and cargo, choose a utility vehicle.
