Speaking about the company’s digital developments, Richard Czepukojc, Yale Europe’s marketing communications executive, said: “We know that more and more people are using the web for research before making purchasing decisions and increasingly see it as a valuable resource.
“Our new web site is much easier to navigate and features much more information than the previous site.
“We are also very excited about our first blog. We will be featuring many different articles on forkliftsRus and are looking to use it as a two way communication channel. We are inviting people to comment on the articles we post, tell us their views and contribute if they have suitable articles they want us to publish.”
