|We're starting to see solid growth reflected in the financial results in this latest reporting season and there are a number of reasons behind it.
Firstly, the global economy is probably in its best shape since the Global Financial Crisis. Against this backdrop, there's lots of activity in the manufacturing sector and in retail.
But let's not forget that some materials handling companies are doing better than others. They're obviously making better products, pricing them appropriately and using optimum distribution models, including motivated and professional dealerships.
In this environment, we can expect most brands to grow and profit, but watch out for some stellar performances from the more switched-on equipment makers and solutions providers.
