Trojan Industries as either purchased by, or formed by, Yale Materials Handling Corporation in 1950. Based in Batavia, New York, USA, the company manufactured wheeled loaders under the Trojan brand. Some were labeled as Trojan Yale, such as those built or sold in Argentina, while in Spain, they were marketed as Yale Trojan.

In Argentina, loaders were manufactured under license by Nortorf of Buenos Aires.[1]

The brand was sold off in 1982 to FAUN of Germany, which gradually merged the two lines together. FAUN wheel loaders were derived from the Frisch, also of Germany. In 1986, O&K took over FAUN and continued building loaders in the Batavia, New York plant as O&K Trojan' branded wheel loaders. The former Yale/Trojan models were eventually phased out, and the plant closed in Batavia in 1992. Current O&K wheel loaders are manufactured in Germany.
