11 New Safety Violations Found at Previously Cited Louisiana Facility

I come across these types of articles everyday. The cost of training a forklift operator is very minimal when comparing the amount of fines that will be levied against a company when found not doing the right thing.

2014 New Year, New Ideas, New Hope

With the coming of the New Year I always like to reflect on what went right the previous year, what went wrong and where can I improve as a person and an employee. I believe the New Year can bring change and a chance to succeed beyond our wildest imaginations.

In looking back at 2013 I realized how blessed of a year I had and FSI as a company. This would not have been possible without all of our loyal customers and all of our new customers we welcomed to the family this year. One of FSI’s guiding principles is “We succeed when our customers succeed”. We witnessed this year a lot of our customers succeeding!

I hope that 2014 will be a very successful year for you! What is it about the New Year that you love? What do you hope for the coming 2014 calendar? Where would you like to be come December 31, 2014?

Quality Pre-Owned Industrial Floor Cleaning Equipment

When people look at or hear about Forklift Systems Inc. the first  and sometimes only thing that pops into their minds is forklift. This can be one drawback of having the word “forklift” in your company name. But did you know Forklift Systems actually offers so much more than just forklifts. Yes it is true we have one of the Top 9 dealerships according to Unicarriers Corporation (formerly Nissan Forkifts North America). We also carry the JLG aerial products, Cushman industrial vehicles and Advance industrial floor cleaning lines. The last one Advance is the one I want to talk about today.

The Advance mission statement is “”We enable sustainable cleaning worldwide to improve quality of life”. The products they manufactur are some of the best in this field. Whether your facility has strict hard floor sanitation and disinfection requirements, or carpeted areas that suffer from increased wear and tear from foot traffic, there is an Advance equipment solution for each unique application. The great thing about dealing with Forklift Systems is we can provide a complete all of these products to you at a very competitive price.

Forklift Systems stand behinds the Advance product lines so much that we offer factory reconditioned units. We also offer in house reconditioned and “as/is” Advance floor cleaning products as well. http://www.forkliftsystems.com/used-forklifts-swepper-scrubbers-c-44_56.html

So next time when you hear about Forklift Systems just remember we can do anything and everything to solve a problem in your business. We take care of your material handling problems so that you can focus your time and energy on whatever it is that makes your company money!
