Tri-Lift NC, Inc’s motto has been “One Source” for many years, and for good reason. We are a truly multi-line supplier than can assist in all facts of materials handling planning, warehouse design, installation and management of all your materials handling needs.
Few companies can assist in facility design, layout, installation and management as well as supply the right forklifts and other lift equipment to complete the job. Working with a single source means one company planning the entire project, creating specifications for all that equipment, ensuring all the pieces fit properly and function as intended.
Having one source means there is no question who is responsible for productivity. Multiple sources have the tendency to avoid responsibility by pointing to other areas not under their control. But when you work with one reliable partner, there’s one call to make, and we’re on the scene! We service and carry parts for what we sell, and even products we didn’t sell. You can count on our service team for everything from rack repair to forklift planned maintenance.
Whether you need a single forklift or a warehouse full of materials handling equipment and a hundred forklifts, Tri-Lift NC, Inc. has the resources to be the partner to help you get the job done right and maximize productivity.

Four Decades of OSHA; See the ResultsPosted: October 24, 2013 Filed under: Forklift Safety, Warehouse Safety | Tags: forklifts, improvement, lift trucks, north carolina, osha, safety, workplace Leave a comment
|History has taught us that quality, safety and productivity result from the setting of and adherence to high standards. Although OSHA has at times, been a much-maligned agency, the results on workplace safety speak for themselves. Their setting of high standards for workplace safety has resulted in a dramatic drop in worker injury and death. Their agency has also made a tremendous effort to not only create and enforce high standards of safety, but also to provide education and information to actually help companies in their efforts to create a safe and productive workplace. Below are the results.
Much of the ground that has been made in workplace safety is a result of creation and enforcement of strict workplace safety. These standards are enforced through a consistent measure of inspections. Many standards called for requirements of employers to provide a wide variety of PPE’s (Personal Protective Equipment) not previously required by employers.
While there have been times that OSHA and it’s many regulations have seemed like a burden, and indeed they can be. No one can discredit the results. One of the most important tasks we take on as employers is the duty to bring all of our employees back safely to work, tomorrow.
