Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
On the back of a couple of weeks of very positive financial results from European materials handling manufacturers, we report this week that the momentum has crossed the Atlantic.

Like its European counterparts, Oshkosh is upbeat about the remainder of the financial year and is looking forward to continuing its growth in 2018.
