NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG) donated a lift truck to First Born Community Development Center of Pitt County last week to assist the charity’s warehousing needs. FBCDC is a member agency of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina that provides food boxes to individuals and families in need.
“The truck will help us work more efficiently and accomplish our mission to serve the community,” said Carolyn Spencer, executive director for FBCDC. It’s always great to see a local company that cares as much about the community as we do.”
FBCDC owns a 2,600-square-foot building to house the food operation, which contains freezers for perishable goods and storage space for non-perishable items. NMHG previously supplied the charity with an electric lift truck, but after reviewing the facility’s needs, NMHG decided a different model would better suit the terrain surrounding the warehouse. The electric lift truck was replaced with a 2005 Yale GLP040 lift truck. Dougherty Equipment Co., the local Yale lift truck dealer, assisted with the delivery and installation of the new lift truck.
Headquartered in Cleveland, NACCO Materials Handling Group designs, engineers, manufactures, sells and services a comprehensive line of lift trucks and aftermarket parts marketed globally primarily under the Hyster and Yale brand names.
