New CAT and Jungheinrich Forklifts will be "Made in America"

At the end of February, I attended an MCFA dealer meeting in Houston, Texas. The meeting was a whirlwind. Got back in touch with some old friends, got some new business going. Great time.

But the highlight was watching the groundbreaking of a new 200,000sq. ft. Houston manufacturing facility for CAT and Jungheinrich forklifts, some of our favorite brands. This new facility will bring 300 manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. from overseas. By the end of 2013, CAT will bring all of its forklift manufacturing to U.S. facilities like this one.

Cromer Material Handling proudly supports all efforts to promote a strong manufacturing base in the U.S. We have dozens of customers who rely on their CAT and Jungheinrich forklifts day in, day out, all across Northern California (and beyond).

The more we support our neighbors, the better our businesses ALL become.
