Lexington-based forklift manufacturer Clark Material Handling Co. announced Thursday that it has acquired EverGreen Electric Vehicles. Financial terms were not disclosed.

In a statement, Clark said the acquisition expands Clark's product lines to include industrial vehicles, utility vehicles and golf cars.
