“I like to relate forklifts to cars – it makes it easier for people unfamiliar with the industry to understand the difference between the different brands. My view is, if you class all the forklift brands like a Holden or Ford, the Lindes are your BMW or Mercedes. Productivity and safety are more important to us than saving a few dollars upfront,” says Eric Danton.

Eric is the Warehouse and Distribution Centre Manager for chemical
giant, Ciba Specialty Chemicals.
