News service and business centre for materials handlingHOME
We wish all American readers a happy Thanksgiving.
For those not familiar with Thanksgiving Day, it’s a national holiday celebrated in the United States (and a bit earlier in Canada) as a day of giving thanks for the the harvest and blessings of the preceding year.
Many in the materials handling sector will have plenty for which to give thanks, but some are still finding it tough out there.
Nonetheless, we think that the community has much to thank the forklift industry for. It’s not just day-to-day efficiencies that forklifts deliver, but the industry as a whole continues to show it has a big heart, helping out in times of need and providing assistance to everyone from disaster victims to cancer researchers.
So, this Thanksgiving, let’s also be grateful to those who continue to make the industry relevant and to those who inspire and lead us with great example.
