Every once in awhile, some of our clients and service providers would show some curiosities of the forklift that we were using when they visited our warehouse. We have a forklift, and yes, it’s PINK.
In December 2010, we wanted to buy a new forklift. Our company’s president and project cost planner visited Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks of Houston to pick one. To raise awareness about male breast cancer, which approximately 2,000 U.S. men were diagnosed within that year, the forklift manufacturer and dealer launched the “Real Men Drive Pink” campaign, and they made one pink electric forklift to raise the fund for donation.
To show our support to the society that is fighting this form of cancer and our respect to Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks of Houston, James Geng, our company’s president, immediately decided to place the order for this specially made forklift at its full price without further negotiations of the cost.
We have been using this unique pink truck ever since it was delivered to our warehouse. We are proud of having a pink forklift truck!
