Last week’s positive sales news was not a flash in the pan. It has been followed by very encouraging sales figures from the world’s third-largest supplier, Jungheinrich, which produced 25% more forklifts last year. The German company’s results come amid reports of rising exports from Europe by the peak continental body FEM. While FEM says it’s too early to predict what lies ahead for this year, the indications are good after two years of market growth.
