Morrison applicants’ FAQs

What is Morrison known for?

Morrison is a leader in the material handling industry. Our core business is our network of 12 branches in lower Michigan and northern Indiana. These branches serve customers by selling, renting, servicing, and providing parts for forklifts and related industrial equipment. We have a 70-year history of thorough industry knowledge, unparalleled dependability, top quality products, and exceptional service.

We’ve expanded our company through acquisitions in recent years, adding related companies that have helped us grow into a broadly-integrated supplier.

What is material handling?

Simply put, material handling is about getting goods and materials from Point A to Point B. The term is used for activities as varied as getting sheet steel to a punch press, moving workpieces around a factory, delivering finished goods to a warehouse, and delivering a load of lumber for pick-up.
