Southern States Toyotalift donates Forklift to Albany Tech
ALBANY, GA --
Albany Technical College was presented with a brand new Toyota forklift Thursday morning.
Southern States TOYOTAlift and Florida Lift Systems, Inc. are responsible for the donation to the Automotive Technology and Diesel Equipment Technology programs.
According to some of the teachers in the program, the vehicles students are currently using in class are older models, so having this new model will give them the opportunity to learn about the newest technology.
Clifford Kyle, the chair of the automotive technology program, says having this new technology allows students to have a top-of-the-line, hands-on experience, and this experience is what’s going to get them a job when they graduate.
After the presentation, representatives from TOYOTAlift interviewed some of the students to possibly hire them when they graduate.

- Loading up for the future: Toyota forklift plant set for multimillion-dollar expansion.
Terminator”-like music thundered through the speakers of the small auditorium as a dividing wall rose slowly to reveal shiny orange forklifts neatly encircled by pale spotlights.
Tom Lego, customer center manager at the Columbus Toyota forklift plant, knew the presentation was a little over the top.
“Thanks for indulging us. We get a little excited,” he said, eliciting laughs from the audience, which included Toyota executives and Columbus Mayor Kristen Brown.
