Manitou on TV?

I don't think I've ever posted about my "day job". I am the marketing specialist for Manitou North America, we manufacture rough terrain forklifts. These are the big forklifts and boom trucks that are used in construction.

One of our largest models was used to build a home for this week's family on Extreme Makeover. The show will be aired on ABC this Sunday, Nov 11 at 7 PM.

The J.S. Hovnanian & Sons construction company used a MANITOU MRT from T.E.S., our dealer in New Jersey. The Marrero family's new 2,800 square foot home was to be built in 106 hours. Due to the level of support and teamwork, (and the MRT, of course!) the home was actually finished 10 hours early!

It is possible that you might get a glimpse of the MRT in action (or not) on the 1-hour show. It's a big red boom truck that rotates. I sure hope it appears, that's good, free advertisement!
