It looked touch-and-go last week, with Europe’s economy in danger once again, but we seem to have survived to fight another day. As we see in this week’s newsletter, it’s certainly business as usual in the materials handling sector in markets around the world. Despite the sluggish economic conditions, sales are steady, new orders for major plant continue to come in and product development remains a priority.
And speaking of developments, don’t forget to look out for our special feature on heavy forklifts next week.
