Modern Co-Sponsers 1st Annual Forklift Rodeo at Anvil International

(Columbia, PA) On June 19th 2014 Modern Group sponsored a Forklift Rodeo at the Anvil International plant in Columbia, PA. Coordinated by Anvil's Greg Wise and entire safety team, this all day event was designed to reinforce fundamental safety rules while fostering friendly competition and company bonding. Challenges included first a written exam and unit inspection, then moving on to a test track with maneuverability, stacking, wall proximity placement and load tipping drills.

At the end of the event the top three participants received customer Hyster Championship Trophies. All team members signed the banner for permanent display at the facility. Modern's partner EnerSys provided lunch for the entire plant.

Modern congratulates Russell Culp, Rafael Hernandez, and champion Joe Thode along with everyone at Anvil for working so hard to promote worker safety!

Modern Supports The Special Olympics

(Newark, DE) We are proud of our nearly two decades of support for Special Olympics. This year our shop in Bristol prepped and shipped a brand new Hyster H50 and Modern T-Shirts for Special Olympics Delaware's Summer Games in Newark this past weekend. The forklift was put to use unloading, moving and setting up equipment for the participants.
At the event was Modern Representative Richard Ulmar. Rich's connection with The Special Olympics is a very personal one, dating back to 1977 when his sister Sarah was chosen to participate at the International Special Olympic Games in Brockport, NY.
