The Raymond Corporation, Raymond Dealer Network Commit Funds to Tsunami Relief Effort

GREENE, N.Y. — The Raymond Corporation and its Dealer Network today announced that they will make cash contributions to the U.S. effort to provide relief to victims of the devastating Asian tsunami.

Malvaso, president and CEO of The Raymond Corporation. “This is an example of multiple, independent organizations coming together to benefit a common cause.”
