Columbia High School Gets a Lift from Ring Power

October 8, 2012 at 9:59 AMRing Power

 

Ring Power donates the use of Cat forklift to high school’s Global Logistics Academy

 

 

 In a small Lake City warehouse, big things are happening.

The warehouse is part of Columbia High School’s Global Logistics Academy, and inside students get hands-on instruction, gaining the skills and experience necessary for a successful career in the logistics field.

But until recently the warehouse lacked a key ingredient — a forklift

So academy instructor Rebecca Golden made a call to Ring Power in Lake City and Regional Sales Manager Todd Sandlin set the wheels in motion to make a forklift in the warehouse become a reality.

Oct. 2 Ring Power Lift Trucks, with administrators and students watching, handed over the keys to a Cat Lift Trucks C5000 to Golden. With the support of Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift of America (MCFA), Ring Power Lift Trucks donated the use of the Cat Lift Trucks forklift for the academic year.

“The forklift will allow students to train and become forklift certified, making them more employable,” said Golden.

Having a forklift in the warehouse will also allow outside groups to come in and become forklift certified, providing additional income to sustain the program, Golden said.

At the warehouse on campus students receive books from First Book, an organization out of Washington D.C. that collects and donates books. When a shipment arrives, students receive the order, package the books and then distribute them throughout the country.

Three years ago the Global Logistics Academy started with just 53 students. Currently 124 students are enrolled in the program and many of them enter careers in the logistics field upon completion of the program.

Anthony and Andrew Pickolo started in the logistics program in their sophomore year. Now seniors, they are spending time in the warehouse on-campus and interning with several companies off-campus.

Andrew said once he completes the program this year he is “pretty much guaranteed employment at the Target distribution center.”

Target has also partnered with the logistics academy and recently donated racking for the warehouse.

The Columbia High School Logistics Academy makes a lot of sense.

Lake City, with its access to major highways and rail lines, is quickly positioning itself as an inland port. Several major corporations have distribution centers already located in Lake City, and many more are expected.

Forklift Manufacturer Celebrates 350,000th Forklift — August 2011

Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. celebrates milestone with production of 350,000th forklift.

Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. celebrates milestone with production of 350,000th forklift.The MCFA forklift, number 350,000, will be used in fabrication and assembly tasks around MCFA facilities.

Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), a leading provider of forklifts in the United States, Mexico, Canada and Latin America, recently celebrated the manufacturing of its milestone 350,000th forklift, a feat equivalent to producing enough forklifts to stretch across the state of Texas. MCFA reached the landmark number through the manufacturing and distribution of three distinct brands of material handling equipment – Cat® lift trucks, Mitsubishi forklift trucks and Jungheinrich® warehouse products.

On August 18, more than 700 MCFA employees, including recently appointed MCFA President Hiroshi Nagai, gathered for an ice cream social to celebrate the manufacturing milestone. The 350,000th forklift, a member of the 3,000–7,000 lb. Internal Combustion (IC) Pneumatic Tire forklift family, painted blue and branded MCFA, was on display and later will be used in fabrication and assembly tasks around MCFA facilities.

MCFA formed in 1992 when Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) entered into a business relationship with Caterpillar Industrial Inc. (CII). The company produced its 100,000th forklift in 1998 and four years later, in 2002, moved into its current headquarters in West Houston. In 2005, MCFA celebrated the shipment of its 250,000th forklift and now in 2011 celebrates its latest milestone with the production of the 350,000th forklift from its Houston manufacturing facility.

“MCFA prides itself on manufacturing quality and reliable products,” said Jay Gusler, director of operations, MCFA. “We’re excited to reach this milestone of 350,000 forklifts produced from our Houston manufacturing facility and appreciate the support of our employees, dealer network and customers in helping us realize this major company achievement.”

Ring Power Lift Trucks leases and finances a wide variety forklifts, from pneumatic tire IC forklifts to efficient electric cushion and pneumatic tire forklifts, from container hanlders by Kalmar and Linde to narrow aisle warehouse forklifts by Jungheinrich, Mitsubishi Forklifts and Cat Lift Trucks. Even very narrow aisle trucks by Bendi and Drexel.

Quality Forklifts. Even Better People.

Forklift Renting Can Be Smart Budgeting—March 2011

March 11, 2011 at 4:18 PMRing Power
material handling equipment rental can be smart budgeting

No matter what size company, you’re bound to encounter items in your warehouse or jobsite that won’t be used on a regular basis. And these items could represent a sizable financial investment. One example is your forklift. Renting a forklift, either short or forklift rentallong-term, may make better economic sense, offer more financial flexibility, and protect your credit in these uncertain times.

Economic Savings
The cost for renting a forklift is typically far less than the cost of buying a forklift outright, particularly when you will just use it for a job here and there. Even if the forklift is for long-term usage, the benefits of a long-term rental may outweigh the costs of a forklift, maintenance and parts. A forklift rental is a fixed cost and is an easily budgetary item.

In addition, even if the actual cost ends up being about the same as buying the item, you will be able to preserve your cash flow. You won’t need to come up with thousands of dollars to purchase the item, but rather just a few hundred for the first day, month, or week of renting it. You can then put your working capital to work for your business, market your product, and grow your income.

In addition, you may be able to deduct the cost of renting items from your business's tax return. This adds even more savings into the equation, as you will lower your tax liability when April 15th comes around. See your tax advisor for details.

Flexibility
Forklift rental provides flexibility for your business as well. As your business grows and changes, its needs will change as well. By leasing these large-ticket items, you can upgrade or downgrade as your business needs change without a huge financial loss.

Whether you need an extra forklift to do inventory, perform a special project or many forklifts to handle extra shipments during a busy season, we offer a comprehensive selection of rental forklifts in a variety of power, capacity and tire arrangements.

Protecting Credit
If you choose to purchase large items for your business, due to your cash flow limits you will likely turn to credit. By renting items instead of buying them, you leave your available credit lines open for other needs. This gives you more confidence that you can get through a slow spell or make smaller purchases when facing a cash flow shortage.

Because of all of these benefits, equipment rental simply makes sense for many businesses. The next time you find your business to be in need of a forklift, consider renting or long-term lease instead of purchasing one. It just might save you some money and increasing your company’s bottom-line.

Ring Power Lift Trucks has over 350 forklifts in its short-term rental fleet to choose from with capacities ranging from 3,000 to 52,000 lbs. Rent a forklift with a configuration that makes you most productive. Rent electric, gasoline, LP-gas or diesel forklifts or rent a specialized material handling forklift, such as quad-mast, truck mounted forklifts, piggyback trucks, flatbed trailers, narrow aisle trucks or order-pickers.

We supply a variety of productive attachments including carpet poles, box clamps, bail clamps, push pulls, single doubles, rotators, fork positioners, and paper roll clamps. We also rent sit-down, stand-on and walk-behind forklifts. Rental forklift rates includes maintenance and transportation of lift trucks to and from your premises.

Ring Power Lift Trucks is the forklift division of Ring Power Corporation, headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. Additional offices service Pompano Beach, Miami, Daytona Beach, Orlando, Tampa, Ocala, Sarasota and Tallahassee.
