HOUSTON (June 8, 2015) – Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), a leading manufacturer of forklifts under the Cat® lift trucks, Mitsubishi forklift trucks and Jungheinrich® brands, will host its second annual National Forklift Safety Day on Tuesday, June 9 at their Houston, Texas headquarters.
