Hyster Donation

Hyster Company donated a W50Z walkie pallet truck to assist the American Red Cross in disaster relief efforts. The truck is being used in the organization’s Atlanta, Ga., warehouse to move critical supplies that support relief efforts of natural and man-made disasters.

“Hyster is pleased to support the outstanding humanitarian efforts of the American Red Cross,” said Joe Bugica, vice president of Marketing for Hyster. “Given the organization’s geographic footprint, and the volume of goods moved through their relief facilities, the American Red Cross will benefit substantially from having a dependable Hyster® truck to help them not only operate efficiently on a day-to-day basis, but more importantly, in greater times of need.”
