40 years of forklift imports
The Machines department reached the milestone of 40 years of operations in 2016. The first Mitsubishi forklifts were imported in 1976, and Berner Ltd’s Forklift department (now known as the Machines department) was established that same year. The 40th anniversary of operations in this area was highly visible not only in our marketing and communications, but also in our strong presence at the year’s main event, the Alihankinta 2016 trade fair in September. Our special anniversary stand at the fair featured a range of Mitsubishi and Combilift forklifts. We also celebrated the milestone at a 40th anniversary party, with guests including partners and customers we’ve worked with over the years, as well as clients’ executives.
During the year, we also participated in the Konepaja 2016 trade fair, the Mansen Mörinät event and the Lepaa 2016 exhibition.
The year was quite challenging due to the low level of investment activity among businesses. Nevertheless, our customers updated their equipment primarily as planned and, towards the end of the year, our customers’ machine purchases showed signs of economic recovery.
