With the melting snow in the area and from up north, along with heavy rains, Illinois experienced flooding in the Rockford area that elevated to a natural disaster level. On March 21st, the American Red Cross of Northern Illinois called Illinois Material Handling’s Rockford location and asked if they had a forklift to assist in the unloading of a semi-trailer of disaster relief supplies. Without hesitation, IMH supplied them with the Doosan forklift they needed the next morning so they could respond to the flood victims with supplies they needed.
Ron Leffler, Disaster Action Team Manager, wanted to pass along his sincere appreciation from the American Red Cross to Illinois Material Handling and the Wolter Group for their generosity with helping the local community when a natural disaster hits.
