It’s a busy newsletter this week, with reports of expansions, acquisitions and investments around the globe. We read, for example, about Toyota Industries’ expansion into Vietnam with a manufacturing plant and Bolzoni’s second joint venture in China. On the dealer side, Doosan Infracore UK has bought a major stake in one of its top dealers while in the US, there’s been a big change at the Hilo group. After a period of disaster, crisis and turmoil, it’s great to have a week of “business as usual”.
