|You're in good company this week, with our membership tally recently passing 72,000!
Our subscriptions are growing fast - as we approach our 20th year. Few in the industry realise that this newsletter began in 1999 with just 50 readers.
Since then, as we hear when we attend industry gatherings, Forkliftaction News has become compulsory reading for anyone who makes, sells, buys or operates materials handling equipment.
We're confident that there will shortly be even more reason to visit our website when we unveil a fresher, more interactive format designed to make it easier to find what you want and see more of the content behind Forkliftaction Media.
The update will make Forkliftaction more user-friendly and our content more accessible, no matter what device you're using.
Please stay tuned - the best is yet to come.
