Industrial Truck Equipment ( ITE ) has been serving the forklift attachment/material handling industry with innovative products for over 20 years. In 1982, Little Giant, a Peoria, Illinois manufacturer of forklift attachments, went out of business. Ernie Hostetler and Carl Brooks, co-owners of Allied Welding, Inc in Chillicothe, Illinois, recognized the void that was left by Little Giant's departure. They hired Little Giant's Chief Engineer and began producing durable, high quality forklift attachments to serve the local market.. ITE, a subsidiary of Allied Welding, is still a family-owned business today. Terry Nelson, Ernie Hostetler's step-son, continues ITE's commitment to provide the forklift attachment market with durable, high quality products at a fair price.
