Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
Great news this week that the global market for materials handling equipment grew 10% in the first half of this year.
More than 550,000 new forklifts are now at work - and we can assume that this means the global arsenal of machines continues to grow and that the sales were not replacements for existing equipment.
And with the rise of equipment rentals, this means more workplaces are finding a use for forklifts.
It's great to be part of a growth industry, especially one in which there is so much innovation and change - as you discover when you read our newsletter each week.
