Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2014 -- Seegrid was profiled in MHEDA Journal (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association) According to the author of the article; most suppliers plan to do more hiring in 2014, with engineering staff in particular demand. Only a few companies mentioned plans to expand facilities; most, like their customers, are finding ways to make more efficient use of their existing space. Greater efficiency could help them deliver products faster, which is one of the biggest demands made by customers in recent years.
In 2014 Seegrid plans to introduce a new short straddle forklift and anticipates significant growth, according to John Hayes, vice president of sales and marketing, North America. The sales increase will come from greater demand from the manufacturing and distribution markets and the company’s new marketing messaging. Seegrid uses social media channels to share information. “We are not focusing on trying to sell products, but on joining in the industry thought leadership,” Hayes said. Seegrid has found that customers are weighing safety and efficiency as well as ROI when they make purchases.
