Firstgreen Industries, a global manufacturer of electric, zero-emission skid-steer loaders, expanded its U.S. footprint reporting more than 120 loaders operating across the U.S. and Canada. The growth has been propelled by the addition of dealerships in new states including New York, Washington, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio and Maryland, with nearly 20 dealerships now selling Firstgreen machines.

“In the U.S. we’ve seen a significant spike in interest for our skid steer loaders over the last year, with expanding use cases in waste management, landscaping, power plants, mining and more,” said Marcus Suess, COO of Firstgreen Industries in the United States. “This is being driven not only by a shifting mindset toward cleaner, safer, more sustainable solutions in off-road environments in line with Scope3 emissions goals but by the affordability and practicality of our machines.”

Founded in 2018, Firstreen is headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic, with its U.S. headquarters in Asheville, N.C. The company began selling to the U.S. market through dealerships in 2021.

“Switching to the Elise900 electric skid steer has revolutionized my mountainous 17-acre property in Colorado,” said Doug Thomas, a farmer in Steamboat Springs, Colo. “The decision to go electric eliminated diesel use, providing cost savings and mitigating fire risks during dry seasons. The machine navigates challenging terrains, addressing diverse needs in agriculture, forestry and snow removal.”
