Ring Power Lift Truck's Sylvia Reyes Becomes First Female Certified in Forklift Technical Training

July 31, 2019 at 10:56 AMRing Power

We are all feeling a shortage of trained technicians in today's workforce. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of 2018 there are about 442,000 (.1 percent of US population) industrial machine technicians in the U.S workforce, less than 3 percent of those techs are women. Sylvia Reyes is making moves to change that, and increase the number of total technicians we have available. 

For the past two years, Reyes has worked as the Branch Administrator at Ring Power Lift Truck's Miami facility. Recently, Reyes developed a curiosity for a deeper understanding of forklifts and decided to register for our online Technical Lift Truck course. This course helped her meet the prerequisites to get hands-on training in our instructor-led technical training class.

In May, Reyes completed multiple hours of training, and earned IC Engine Control and Fuel Systems I certification—which she passed with flying colors. Gaining this certification, Reyes became the first woman to complete the Ring Power Live Lift Truck Technical Training. However, Reyes isn't finished. She has a student mentality and plans to continue learning and developing skills beyond her current role. 

Reyes is currently enrolled in model-specific courses and intends to get enough training under her belt to assist with other classes. Eventually, she may decide to take her acquired knowledge and pursue a position in the service department or as a Florida forklift field service technician. Kudos, Sylvia!

Gentlemen, there's a new player in town.

Citrus County Food Bank Takes Delivery of New Forklifts

April 4, 2013 at 10:24 AMRing Power

 Community Food Bank of Citrus County gets a lift from Ring Power Lift Trucks

The fight to end hunger is a momentous task but the Community Food Bank of Citrus County is up to the challenge. Formed last year, the Community Food Bank of Citrus County works tirelessly to acquire and distribute quality, nutritious food to pantries, soup kitchens and shelters within Citrus County. 

Sharon Jones of the Community Food Bank of Citrus County sits in the Clark TMX15S, one of two forklifts the Food Bank recently purchased from Ring Power Lift Trucks.

With food donations coming into the main warehouse in Homosassa, Fla., the Community Food Bank requires, not just the work of countless volunteers; but the proper material handling equipment to ensure that the food is stored properly and efficiently, and when ready, distributed to various agencies across the county.

The Community Food Bank recently turned to Ring Power Lift Trucks for their expertise in choosing the proper material handling equipment for their job. With the help of Ring Power Lift Trucks Salesman Joe DeJohn and PSSR Rob Brown, the staff recently decided on and purchased two new forklifts for their operations.

After assessing their needs, DeJohn felt that a Big Joe E30, an electric pallet jack with a 3,000 lbs. capacity, was the best product for the application.

The food bank was also immediately sold on a Clark TMX15S electric lift truck, to work in the tight aisles in a way that no one lift truck can.

We commend the Community Food Bank of Citrus County for their selfless efforts to end hunger within the county and look forward to a continued relationship with them.
