Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Solid growth continues to emerge in the financial reports of the listed materials handling manufacturers this week, with good profits both in Europe and the United States.
Those positive reports come as stock markets around the world took a battering in the wake of the escalating trade tensions between the United States and China which saw Beijing devalue its currency.
It's clear that a lot of manufacturers are nervous and some have revised their full-year results downward.
The next few weeks and months will, indeed, be testing times for all in the industry.
