|Major events in the industry tend to dominate materials handling news - in the lead-up, while they're under way and often in the weeks afterwards as well. The major manufacturers generally schedule new product releases around the events - and those not involved usually keep their powder dry until after it's all over.
ProMat, currently running in Chicago, is no different - and while there has been a cacophony of news releases related to activities on the exhibition floor, the rest of the industry seems to be holding its breath.
So, this week's newsletter is dominated by the biggest show around at the moment, and there's lots to read about new products and services. And, for anyone in Chicago right now, please drop in and say hello to Forkliftaction at Booth S2792.
