Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
When German giant Jungheinrich speaks, it's worth taking note. And the messages in Jungheinrich's 2017 full-year results are optimistic.
The manufacturer notes strong growth in the global market for materials handling equipment - up 18% or 213,000 units. More importantly, the results contradict those who have been predicting the demise of IC forklifts. That market experienced a "steep rise".
According to Jungheinrich, China is still going gangbusters, while its major markets of Europe and North America are growing strongly. And Eastern Europe remains a hot spot, with 20% growth.

"Well said, need do drop this obsession thinking Cannock is the centre of the universe and invest in some strategically placed branches to provide the regional customers with what they want. Bring down the divisions within, all looking out for their own departments charging each other for this and that wooden dollars!".

"I hope that someone could help me with a problem that i encountered with a recently bought Linde E16H forklifter. Whenever we lift loads with it there is an error that appears on the screen, error 900 and just after that the forklifter doesn't work anymore. It looks like there is some kind of limit or something because if we lift small loads it works without any problems.".
