Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
This week's news contains more new models than any edition outside of a major trade show. And this is surprising, given that we have just seen a significant online event in the form of ProMatDX.
You can read about new lithium models from Hangcha in the United States; Clark's new diesel forklift series for non-EU markets; Manitou's major product revamp with new compact fixed and ultra-compact telehandlers and articulated loaders; and the entry of China's MiMA into the UK market, where manufacturer Wilmat will sell its articulated forklifts.
All this activity, coupled with Jungheinrich's updated financial forecast, should put a bounce in the step of anyone in the materials handling sector.
Things are certainly looking up!

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.
Safety in operations is gaining increasing attention these days. Potential risks associated specifically with warehouses and production areas are becoming especially apparent at times when goods handling is extremely busy. However, the growing portfolio of safety solutions from Linde Material Handling (MH) can assist.
