We wish all American readers a happy Thanksgiving.
For those not familiar with Thanksgiving Day, it’s a national holiday celebrated in the United States (and a bit earlier in Canada) as a day of giving thanks for the the harvest and blessings of the preceding year.
Many in the materials handling sector will have plenty for which to give thanks, but some are still finding it tough out there.
Nonetheless, we think that the community has much to thank the forklift industry for. It’s not just day-to-day efficiencies that forklifts deliver, but the industry as a whole continues to show it has a big heart, helping out in times of need and providing assistance to everyone from disaster victims to cancer researchers.
So, this Thanksgiving, let’s also be grateful to those who continue to make the industry relevant and to those who inspire and lead us with great example.

In The Discussion Forums
"In my opinion you really need to look at the complete process from start to finish before you say that it is "Green". The products that it takes to produce nuclear power are very harmful as well as the waste from that production. Not to mention the affects to the environment if there was a disaster such as we saw in Japan a few years ago. The production of lead acid batteries is about as bad and as far as the recycling just Google lead acid battery reclamation and read the articles.".
Partsguy5, United States
"That's a record even for Briggs the guy quit before he started, whoever the Americans bring in needs to start looking at middle management, you know the kind 50k a year company cars, phones, computers etc and never seen a fork truck. Or the salesman 30k a year plus commission, car, phone, computers etc and yet to sell a truck. They have a higher turnover in salesmen then they do in equipment".
FakeEngineer, United Kingdom
"as an RTITB instructor i know we have certain standards to meet so when it comes to the theory test is it produced in different languages or must the trainee be able to read and write in english?".
