Portland Company Gives Cycle Oregon a Lift

tom-and-davidCycle Oregon puts on the best bike rides in America thanks to the people and organizations that believe in our mission. From riders and volunteers to financial backers and in-kind sponsors, support for Cycle Oregon comes in all shapes and sizes.

One of our Champion Sponsors, Norlift of Oregon, Inc., a Portland-based material handling company has supported Cycle Oregon for 10 years. Since 2007, Norlift has provided complimentary forklifts and other material-handling equipment for Cycle Oregon events.

“Norlift approaches Cycle Oregon by first asking, ‘How can we help?’” says Brad Kendrick, Operations Manager for Cycle Oregon. “At our core, Cycle Oregon is in the logistics business, and Norlift’s help has made us more efficient. Their support has allowed us to cut days off staging, loading, and unloading for each of our events.”

“We are fortunate to be able to give back to the Oregon community that has supported Norlift for the last 31 years,” says Tom Leslie, president of Norlift. “Cycle Oregon provides a window into many lesser known, but beautiful, parts of the state. The mission of Cycle Oregon is critical to Oregon’s regional economies.”

Norlift views Cycle Oregon as an opportunity to explore the great Oregon outdoors and contribute to their sustainability.
