Tampa, FL – Clarence “Bill” Underwood retired from Yale Lift Trucks of Florida and Georgia after 41 years of service. Underwood had been with the company since 1969, when he was hired as a service technician. He has since been the shop foreman and service manager for the dealership. The company held a congratulatory gathering with food and gifts to celebrate. “Bill has been the one constant at the dealership since I took over in 1980. Whenever a lift truck went boom in the night, Bill was able to get customers up and running with little or any fan fare,” says Founder and CEO Sandy MacKinnon.
