Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
We're reminded this week that materials handling is a PEOPLE business. And it's the passing of one of the industry's most loved and respected figures that reinforces this belief.
It is with great sadness that we report on the passing of veteran forklift executive Rolf Slobotzky, a pioneer in the materials handling industry in Latin America and a long-time contributor to Forkliftaction News.
Rolf Slobotzky is fondly remembered by all who worked with him and knew him and his loved ones will take some comfort in knowing that he made a difference.
Rest in peace, Rolf.
