Industrial Equipment Dealership with 4 Mississippi Locations

Welcome to Burke Handling Systems

Burke Handling Systems began business in Mississippi in January 1966.

On January 1, 1966, Robert O. Burke Sr. and Barney F. Hasenyager opened Mississippi Clarklift, Inc. in Jackson, Mississippi. Taking over the territory formerly covered by Delta Material Handling in Memphis, Tennessee, Mississippi Clarklift was a franchised dealer of both CLARK and Crown equipment.

The company has grown over the years and has expanded to meet it’s customer’s ever-growing needs. To better serve our customers throughout the state, branches were opened in Greenville, MS in 1975, Columbus, MS in 1976, and most recently in Hattiesburg, MS in 1995. In 1985 we changed our name to better describe the complete line of material handling equipment we now carry.
