Forklift manufacturer Jungheinrich reports a surge in demand
UK sales of Jungheinrich’s used equipment has more than doubled in the last two years and the company expects this trend to continue.
The increase contrasts sharply with figures recently published by the British Industrial Truck Association (BITA). According to BITA, UK sales fell by 14.5% during 2008 to 2001 levels.
