SCMH E-News Q4 2018

SCMH Marks 80th Year in Business

The year 2019 marks our 80th year in business. Established in 1939 in the City of Commerce, we’ve gone through many changes, lived at three addresses, donned a few names, witnessed 13 U.S. Presidents, survived recessions— and through it all we remained steadfast believing that as long as we serve Southern California with our absolute best, we’ll live through many milestones. What a journey! We’ve come a long way and we wouldn’t  have made it this far without your partnership.

To our customers, thank you for allowing us to contribute to your success. 80 years of getting to know what helps your business grow, inspired us to push boundaries when providing you with service.
Our technicians train hard because they know how important zero downtime is to your business.

Our factory, Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America (MCFA), invests in research, technology, and local manufacturing so that the products we deliver at your doorstep specifically responds to your needs efficiently and cost effectively.

We continue to expand our parts operations in support of your day-to-day forklift needs, delivering you parts fast or they’re free.

To our business partners, vendors, and suppliers, we appreciate your dedication and support as we bring together components that make our products and services representative of quality, reliability, and efficiency.

To our SCMH family, we are very grateful for your hard work, loyalty, and commitment to performance. Behind every forklift we send, every service we lend, every part we deliver are your stamps of passion in putting our customers’ needs above all else. Big thank you! Let us continue to lift each other higher. Cheers!

Take a peek at our journey.

SCMH Rental Solutions Up for Your Task

Our rental expansion based on your material handling needs is now ready to benefit your business in a number of ways:

1. Lift as high as you need. We now offer order pickers and reach trucks with all lift heights. If you need to reach high, the superior performance and longest runtime on one charge of our Jungheinrich products is a must-try!

2. Load as much as you can. Our brand new, heavy duty, large capacity Konecranes just came in. Give it a spin and experience the difference first hand.

3. Run as long as two shifts without charging. Our fleet of electric forklifts are guaranteed to run on two shifts with just one charge. Plus, they now come with battery watering service, covering ALL NORMAL wear and tear. Your operators need not worry about battery acid or back strains struggling with battery maintenance.

So this new year and all year ’round, remember SCMH is up for your task, anytime, any size, any capacity, and any type.

Equipment Spotlight

Genie S-40/TraX

These models have wide, rubber tracks for increased flotation and traction, so soft, wet or rough terrain won’t slow you down. They even travel well over sensitive outdoor surfaces. And because all four tracks are independent, they steer like a wheeled machine — great for sites where you need to maneuver close to walls and foundations. Learn More
