The material handling vehicles include 11 class-2 stand-up reach lift trucks and 28 class-3 rider pallet trucks. Plug Power will also provide Golden State Foods with GenCare onsite maintenance and service.

Golden State Foods’ 158,300-sq-foot regional headquarters and logistics center met LEED Gold Certification standards.
