Papé Material Handling
Papé Material Handling opened their new 25,000 sq. ft. business in the Gonzales Industrial Park in June of 2021. Papé Material Handling is currently located in Salinas and has 29 locations in five states, and is headquartered in Eugene, Oregon. The relocation of their Salinas facility to the City of Gonzales put their business in a more central location relative to their clients in the Salinas Valley. The employees currently working in Salinas would be transferred to the Gonzales location. There are approximately 35 employees, with two-thirds of them off-site and in the field at any one time. With the relocation to Gonzales, there will be a slight increase in the number of employees. Papé provides materials handling equipment such as forklifts and aerial lifts. They would sell, rent and service such equipment from their new Gonzales facility, and they will also sell parts. Papé Material Handling is a certified John Deere tractors dealer and will sell these tractors in Gonzales.
