The name Lloyd Shoppa is well-known in many circles – and the legacy that he leaves behind will not soon be forgotten.
On Feb. 11, 2019, we said goodbye to Lloyd, father of Jim Shoppa, president of Shoppa’s Material Handling. Lloyd left his mark on Shoppa’s in many ways. After an illustrious career of his own in aviation with Bell Helicopter, Lloyd remained an integral part of Shoppa’s Material Handling in many ways.

Shoppa’s Material Handling was the proud forklift sponsor of CANstruction Dallas 2018, held this year from Sept. 8-23. Four Toyota forklifts were donated for use throughout the event.
This year, Shoppa’s helped 24 teams of architects, designers, engineers and construction company personnel move around roughly 120,000 cans of food which the teams then used to create fantastic, giant-sized structures with a theme of “Oh the places we can go” – a spinoff from the classic Dr. Seuss book “Oh, the places you’ll go.”
