News Edition #982
9 July 2020
Happy birthday to us!
This newsletter marks the 20th anniversary of Forkliftaction News.
There is a full report on the milestone in this week's news, as well as some recollections from team members.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed to the rich and colourful history of this materials handling newsletter and portal: the staff past and present, the advertisers and sponsors whose support has allowed us to continue offering free access to our extensive resources, and, just as importantly, our members and readers who turn to us for their information needs.
None of this, of course, would be possible without the vision and support of our founder, Michael Leu. Michael, thanks for making it happen!
