the End of Materials Handling as it is known today

The Materials Handling market is about to change. With only around six or seven of the world's manufactures serving. With in the next 10 years most warehouse will be completely different Companies like KION of China DAMATIC or TOYOTA of Japan VANDERLANDE will dominate the warehouse business with hole turnkey products. Pallet trucks, reach trucks VNA truck will all be replaced with automated equipment.

Counter balance forklift sales will also decline and be replaced with complete handling systems that will be able to move products around a facility with out the need of an operator. Out side the facility there will also be big changes Both Diesel and electric forklifts will be replaced with 100% zero emission products that will have much longer ranges then electric forklifts and will be able to handle loads up to 72,000kg while being 100% zero emission. Companies Like Hyster who have backed Hydrogen to the tune of up to $260 million investment will see this disappear as hydrogen forklifts wont be able to compete with the new technologies that will offer lower cost's ,no need for high pressure systems ,be less explosive and more cost effective than hydrogen.

Firstly they is over 2,000 miles of ammonia pipe line in North America so getting ammonia would not be hard. What we will do is supply the ammonia with trucks so no matter where you are ammonia can easily be supplied

Second valuation, this is really quite hard to do first you will have what someone or a company is willing to pay and secondly what someone or a company is willing to accept.

For our project this is confidential as we are not a public traded company Where the markets decided the value with the market cap.if some wants to purchase a company they decide the price they want to pay , if the shareholders are happy it gets accepted if not it doesn't

In North America you have some SPACS with market caps over a billion but they have never sold a product. So value is a matter for both companies and shareholders

It will all depend on how the majority shareholders look at it, will they want to sell, will they want to take it private, will they just hope they can turn the company round.

Hyster Yale brand recognition is quite strong so the brands might stay around but as a stand alone company or part of a larger organisation that will depend.

Hyster Yale market cap in 2017 was $1.4 billion today it is $428 million that's over a 60% drop.

Any company that sees its market cap drop by this much in five years is in trouble.

That's quite clear or to put it in clear terms $ 1,400 investment in Hyster Yale in 2017 is now worth $ 428 today

You and your INVESTORS must have dumped some serious coin into this never ending project over the past years but haven't produced a single working fully functional unit just more "kisses & promises" that one will appear for a show and tell some day. But some day never seems to happen,. Just a word merchant me and others think,. Credibility = zero..
Reminds me of this some from the Wizard of Oz

Your conjecture over the demise of Hyster-Yale has been going on for years. Much like your super truck none of it has come true.

Ok why not because you say so. You can tell yourself they are not in trouble and you can beleive they are not in trouble. But that wont change the fact they are going to have big write downs,

I said some time ago they were going to make huge losses and last year they made quite a large loss. But im just knocking Hyster Yale and their mangement KION had a turnover of 10.3 Billion Euro and made a EBIT of 842 Million Euro , so when you look at Hyster Yale against KION they are in trouble

Fact of the week

John Lennon had terrible eyesight and was very self-conscious about it. Early in his career, he would not wear his glasses during performances. In the end, John's 'granny glasses' became one of his most iconic trademarks. His last pair, worn on that tragic day in 1980, are kept at 'The Beatles Story' exhibit in Liverpool, insured for over £1 million.
