This week's news contains more new models than any edition outside of a major trade show. And this is surprising, given that we have just seen a significant online event in the form of ProMatDX.
You can read about new lithium models from Hangcha in the United States; Clark's new diesel forklift series for non-EU markets; Manitou's major product revamp with new compact fixed and ultra-compact telehandlers and articulated loaders; and the entry of China's MiMA into the UK market, where manufacturer Wilmat will sell its articulated forklifts.
All this activity, coupled with Jungheinrich's updated financial forecast, should put a bounce in the step of anyone in the materials handling sector.
Things are certainly looking up!
