Thang Long Industrial Park
Work has started on a new plant in Vietnam that will produce forklift transmissions and axle components for export.

Sumitomo Nacco Materials Handling Vietnam Co Ltd, a joint-venture project between Sumitomo Heavy Industries and Nacco Materials Handling Group, anticipates the plant will generate USD2 million in revenue per year.

The 2.7-hectare plant in Thang Long Industrial Park, Dong Anh District will be operational in seven months. The project will be divided into three phases with a total capital investment of USD60 million.

The second phase will involve making forklift parts and the third phase will concentrate on making the machines.

Takashi Yoneda, director of Sumitomo, says the company decided to invest in Vietnam because of its labour quality, political stability, tax incentives and geographical advantages.

Economy rocks NMHG sales, shipments

Mayfield Heights, OH, United States

Nacco Industries Inc’s materials handling group (NMHG) is feeling the wrath of the economic cycle.

The company anticipates significant declines in global forklift markets with little expectation for recovery until 2010. NMHG manufactures and markets forklifts under the Yale and Hyster brands.

The company says NMHG is operating with capital expenditure constraints, planned plant downtime, reductions in workforce, restrictions on spending and travel, suspension of the incentive compensation programs and profit-sharing wage freezes, and salary and benefit reductions.

For the 2008 fourth quarter ended December 31, the wholesale side of NMHG reports profit of USD1.6 million – down from USD23.8 million for the comparable 2007 quarter.

Quarterly sales decreased to USD647 million from USD760 million, and shipments dropped to 20,830 units from 25,046.

The year-end backlog was 14,900 units in comparison to 30,500 units at the end of 2007.

The company recorded a USD6 million pre-tax charge for reductions in force at all NMHG locations because of the downturn in forklift markets.

The key drivers for the change in results at NMHG wholesale were a decrease in market volume for units and parts, unfavourable foreign currency movements and the reduction-in-force costs, says Alfred M Rankin Jr, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Mayfield Heights-based holding company Nacco Industries.

The retail portion of NMHG reported an adjusted quarterly loss of USD1.6 million in 2008 versus USD1.1 million in 2007. Reduced spending and lower interest expense were noted for the retail side.

In addition to NMHG operations, publicly traded Nacco Industries has housewares and mining businesses.

Well Mr Gray says it will not affect americas it is for asian market. I don't belive for a second it won't hurt american plants. 60 million dollars to jump start a market "BS" they cant even sell enough to keep us busy much less others also. Sounds like the end to all american Nacco plants to me. I mean transmission and axles first then forklift parts and to finish it putting them together. It sure sounds like parts of all our jobs in Greenville,Berea and Sulligent. I hope this is not the case but it wont shock me.

35 years ago the Vietnamese were torturing and starving our soldiers, airmen and sailors. Now this dumbass bunch wants to ship our jobs over there. Maybe they'll take a few of these suck supervisors with them,and maybe move a few of the top managemant over there, too. I'd like to see them eatin' a big dawg sandwich. This place is history.

Ho Chi Minh should be seriously spinning in his mausoleum about now. I suspect LBJ and Nixon should be going a few spins themselves. I don't think this is why five million Vietnamese or 52,000 Americans gave up their lives.
