Over 40 years ago, Forklift Exchange started when Marty Flaska decided to drop out college, spend the rest of his savings on a broke-down car, and repair it before driving from Wyoming back home to Chicago to set up shop in his own garage, pursuing his dream of being an entrepreneur and business owner. With the experience he gained from growing up watching and helping his father in a small forklift repair shop, Marty and his younger brother Mike started Forklift Exchange from humble beginnings in 1990 and quickly outgrew their garage, turning their startup into an equipment empire with hundreds of machines and locations spanning the entire country.
