SCMH Techs Retain Expertise with Relentless Training

pm-trainingNo SCMH tech rests on his laurels as each pursue higher standards of rendering optimum lift truck service. In a series of Planned Maintenance (PM) update courses held in the fourth quarter of 2016, SCMH technicians immerse in intense training on PM tackling both refresher items and new technologies applied in inspecting, maintaining, and recommending long-term solutions to extend the life of material handling equipment. While SCMH techs are among the top-trained in the industry, with over 2,000 hours of combined training yearly, SCMH intends to ensure that it is always a step ahead to better serve its customers’ needs.

In an article published by The SCMH Tech Volume 1, Technical Training Manager Ron Lester reiterated that the industry is moving fast and SCMH pioneers the human expertise in maintaining and repairing highly-advanced lift trucks. “Any company can obtain machines. But without knowledgeable and skilled technicians, who will maintain and repair forklifts?” Ron shares.

While SCMH strongly focuses on technical programs all year long, safety training has always been a top priority. On November 15, a Fall Protection Program was conducted to ensure technicians are able to perform diagnostics, repairs, and maintenance at elevated heights.


On the same note, SCMH’s operator safety training programs are ongoing throughout the year, ensuring that all its employees are current with their permits—no exceptions. These programs are made available to its customers either on pre-scheduled class dates or by requested dates. Visit for details.
