Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
Our thoughts go out to those affected by Superstorm Sandy which struck the east coast of the United States earlier this week.
It will clearly take some time to return to normal in affected areas - something we at's head office know only too well after the devastating floods that hit Brisbane last year.
No doubt, a number of forklift businesses will be affected by the devastation - and we feel for those who have lost property and possessions. But one thing is for sure: the materials handling industry will be among the first to offer a helping hand. And forklifts will, as usual, be at the forefront of the recovery operations.
We wish all our affected readers all the best in these tough times.
