Memorial Day Tribute

Memorial Day Tribute

We pause today not just for picnics or a 3-day weekend, but to acknowledge the great debt we owe to the men and women of our military who gave their lives so that we could enjoy these blessings. Today we are sharing quotes from some of our Commanders-in-Chief on what Memorial Day is really about. “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” --Presid ..

May the Forks Be With You!

Most people are Star Wars geeks. Some people are forklift geeks. We here at JIT consider ourselves to be both, so that’s why we’re celebrating the power of the FORKS all month long. May 4th has unofficially been named National Star Wars Day and celebrated by the series fandom given the play on words, “May the Fourth be with you.” Join us this Wednesday and for the entire month of May by sharing, commenting, or posting about #MayTheForks with all of your geeky forklift prowess.  ..

The True Measure of Thanksgiving

Joyce Schwob - Monday, November 24, 2014

Thanksgiving is one of those rare holidays that still feel special, unspoiled by the need to celebrate a whole month in advance. Sure we make plans, shop, bake and travel. But it's all in anticipation of that one day when you sit down with family and friends and enjoy the warmth of home, a good meal and reflect on what you have to be grateful for. We are all blessed and our lists are long. So what should we do with them all our blessings? Shall we put them in a big pile and admire them ..

There is Always Something to Be Thankful For

“Gratitude, like faith, is a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it grows, and the more power you have to use it on your behalf. If you do not practice gratefulness, its benefaction will go unnoticed, and your capacity to draw on its gifts will be diminished. To be grateful is to find blessings in everything. This is the most powerful attitude to adopt, for there are blessings in everything.” —Alan Cohen, Businessman 2013 Has been a year of incredible highs and some per ..

The Lift You Need - Practically FREE*

The Lift You Need - Practically FREE*

What do forklifts and coffee have in common? Well, they both give you a needed 'lift' and both can be strong and powerful. Most of the folks here at JIT Toyota-Lift are big fans of coffee and we thought it would be pretty cool to have our own brand. So we found a local roaster, a cool design and JIT Java was born. Our JIT Java House Blend is not your average lightweight roast. We like our coffee like we like our forklifts, bold and powerful. If this stuff was an electric forklift, it w ..

Remembering Where We Started - A Celebration of 30 Years

Joyce Schwob - Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Way back in May of 1983, Bud & Mary Short embarked the adventure of creating a business. Jamestown Industrial Trucks was born in a 2 bay garage in Frewsburg with the idea that they could do things a better way. Through risk taking balanced with sound financial decisions, Bud & Mary grew the business from 2 employees in 1983 to over a dozen just 5 years later. As the business grew, so did the building. We chuckle sometimes about the way our building is designed --  ..
