Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
We report this week on the 50th anniversary of Landoll Corp, one of several forklift businesses that have marked milestones in recent weeks.
It’s a sign of the maturity of the sector that businesses are racking up significant anniversaries around the world. But it’s also a testament to the owners and managers who have not only survived, but thrived through good times and bad.
As consolidation and corporatisation become more common, it is refreshing to see businesses continuing to go it alone, doing things the way they have done for decades - albeit using modern technology and business practice.
But at the end of the day, solid business values of honesty, integrity and customer service still seem to work.
