From time to time, we hear about people celebrating 50 years or more in the industry. In fact, at the moment, we’re interviewing an industry professional with over 60 years’ experience who still works a full day, every day, at age 88.
These folks have, of course, seen enormous changes in not only technology, but safety and environmental issues surrounding forklifts.
Generally, they also have great business practices, terrific work ethics and some pride in what they do.
If you know someone like this, feel free to pass on their details so that we can share them with others.
And to all the old-timers - keep on truckin’.

"Looking for a good moblie tool Box with wheels for draging out of the van. Have alot of customers on building sites where i can't get near the machine, so i need something tough any ideas guys. ".

"You'll find that this industry is based on relationships rather than facts in a lot of situations. The biggest key factor in determining the success of a given unit is it's application. Undersizing a unit beats the unit to death, while oversizing it wastes financial resources- finding the balance is the key.".
bbforks, United States
"I am fully aware of many of those "rules of thumbs" after 41 years in the truck industry that folks use - that wouldn't hold water if something happened - at least in the courts on this side of the border. Have had to provide depositions a time or two.".
