Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
From time to time, we like to report on our own progress, and this week, our newsletter will go out to more than 55,000 readers from Argentina to Armenia.
North America and Europe remain our biggest markets, at 42% and 27%, respectively.
Our biggest demographic is still forklift users and fleet managers, but dealers are not far behind.
And for those only impressed by big numbers, in August we enjoyed nearly 14 million hits, with the average visitor spending almost 15 minutes on the website each visit.

"Briggs Equipment Miami lost a key member of their parts department today. Manny Guarcaran succumbed to the evil disease of cancer today, He was 51. Manny will be sorely missed by all those that worked with him and all the customers whom he serviced.".

"I have just retired after more than 35 years in the forklift trade. I have seen some good times in the past and know some lovely guys and have met some great customers. There is too much pressure on everyone in the industry to succeed now. However, it is good to see how techs in the industry will still help each other, no mater what dealer or manufacturer they work for. Long may it continue. Bobby".

"I've had dealers deny warranty claims because my customer had an independent working on their machine. It's happened a few times with different dealers (different makes & models). They found an excuse about how the machine wasn't repaired to factory standards because aftermarket parts were used (filters).".
