New Milford, CT, November 15, 2013 – Rapidparts Inc. (Rapidparts), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), supplies service parts for competitive forklift brands and other aftermarket products to authorized Cat® lift truck, Mitsubishi forklift truck and Jungheinrich® dealers under the Promatch® brand name. The Promatch® parts program has partnered with Glacier Computer LLC (Glacier Computer), a manufacturer of rugged mobile computing solutions, to offer forklift-mounted computers and other rugged mobile computing devices.

“Real-time, reliable information is the key to everything from maximizing floor space, keeping inventory up to date, and avoiding costly mishandling of goods,” said Jerry Sytsma, general manager of Rapidparts. “We must continue to provide our customers with the technology and innovative equipment that their business applications demand.”

Glacier industrial computers are designed for harsh applications where adverse temperatures, shock and vibration are standard conditions. Designed to help people who manage data, logistics, equipment, and other workers within these environments, the computers are ready to be integrated into a new or existing warehouse or distribution center in any industry. Glacier’s versatile product line includes industrial all-in-one computers, handhelds and rugged tablet computers. And because most harsh environments are unique to each customer, MCFA dealers can provide customization services through Glacier that deliver a complete forklift data collection solution.  “Securing partner relationships in key verticals is a strategic part of our future success,” states Ron D’Ambrosio, CEO of Glacier Computer.  “The MCFA agreement is one of several that we plan to announce in the coming months.”
