ATC Previews Forklift Donation Opportunity from Southern States TOYOTAlift/ Florida Lift Systems, Inc.


March 20, 2013- ALBANY, GA-Albany Technical College will be presented with an opportunity to receive a forklift donation from Southern States TOYOTAlift/Florida Lift Systems, Inc. during a special presentation on Thursday, March 21, 2013, at 10am, in the faculty parking lot behind Prosperity Hall and in front of the Albany Tech Career Development Center. The Career Center will also host an on-site recruitment event afterwards for Albany Tech students who have shown interest in a position with TOYOTAlift.

With TOYOTAlift being a prime employment opportunity for Albany Tech students majoring in Automotive Technology and Diesel Equipment Technology, the possible donation of a forklift would be beneficial for these programs to have in the labs.

During the presentation on tomorrow, representatives with TOYOTAlift will have one of the forklift models on hand as a demonstration of the type of equipment Albany Tech might receive for training purposes. However, officials at Albany Tech and TOYOTAlift are still sorting out details of which forklift model would be the most beneficial to these students to learn the latest skills in troubleshooting, repairing, and servicing and ultimately, make them more employable.

Within the last two years, Albany Tech received a Nissan Titan and Kia Sorento donation to assist automotive students to learn the latest technology on these vehicles and gain skills necessary for employment. In addition, several years ago, the Albany Tech Foundation received an individual donation of a Nissan Maxima in need of repairs. Students in the Automotive Technology program diagnosed and repaired the older vehicle, while

Automotive Collision Repair Technology students finished with bodywork on the vehicle. Albany Tech welcomes these types of opportunities in order to provide students with the latest technology and training possible to further prepare them for the workforce.
