Congratulations to two manufacturers on big milestones this week.
Ireland's Combilift recently delivered its 60,000th unit to a customer in Australia. At the same time, German crane maker Liebherr has shipped its 1,300th maritime crane from Rostock, Germany to Ghana.
While the machines are run-of-production units, the numbers are impressive. In Combilift's case, the milestone was racked up in less than 25 years of production as the company was established in 1998. For Liebherr, the milestone crane is just one of many product lines - albeit one that has made its way to over 100 countries on all continents.
Of course, as the materials handling market matures, we are seeing many more significant achievements - but it's hard not to be impressed!

Our sharpest memories are from early adulthood. This psychological concept called "the reminiscence bump" claims that as adults remember more events from their twenties than from any other time in their lives. According to psychologist Dan McAdams, this phenomenon grows out of the fact that this period of one's life is important in shaping one's identity or "life story."
