We were able to increase awareness
of fork lift safety by again generating a
considerable amount of media coverage
related to this event, which included circulation numbers from all of the media
outlets that (similar to numbers in 2016)
exceeded 58 million. I hope that you
will be able to join us on June 12, 2018
as we celebrate the 5th Anniversary of
National Forklift Safety Day.
Our industry plays a significant role
in all of our respective economies
through our support of moving goods,
our manufacturing and employment.
We partnered with Oxford Economics
to conduct the study to provide a synopsis of the US powered industrial truck
industry based on a statistical analysis
and an industry survey. This information was used to evaluate the contribution of the US industrial truck industry
by quantifying the direct, indirect and
associated impact of our businesses
have on the US economy. I wanted to
share with you some highlights from
the report:
* Globally, more than 1 million
industrial truck or forklift units are
sold annually.
* In the U.S., Canada and Mexico,
more than 230,000 units were sold
in 2016.

o With over 200,000 units in the
U.S. alone, more than 60 percent
are electric.
* The industry's economic
contribution to the U.S. gross
domestic product (GDP) was $25.7
billion in 2015.
* The industry's activity supports a
total of 209,000 U.S. jobs.
* Each job within the industry
supports 2.5 additional jobs
elsewhere in the U.S. economy.
* The industrial truck manufacturing
industry workforce has a greater
share of veterans compared to all
other manufacturing as well as
other industries.
* In 2015, the industry paid $5.3
billion to local, state and federal
governments in taxes.
Our industry has been fortunate over
the past few years to be operating in a
robust market. As described in the
Oxford Economics report, our industry
has a strong presence in many of the
communities we serve, are fortunate to
substantially contribute to the growth
of our economy and provide good job
opportunities for many families. It is
through the dedication and commitment
of the people in the industry that affords
us success. Thank you.
