TVH in the Americas announced with the deepest regret the death of Royce Albright, Regional Sales Manager.
“It’s with the greatest sadness we share that Royce Albright, our esteemed colleague, and trusted friend, passed away on Sunday, February 28th,” said Cathy Diaz, United States Sales Director. “Royce’s knowledge and passion for the industry was evident in everything he did. His kindness and generosity were limitless, it extended to his customers, his family at work and at home.”
Royce started his career in automotive parts, prior to joining the material handling industry. Royce got his start in the industry when he was hired by Hank Ogden, the Dealer Principal of Ogden Forklifts located in Atlanta. While there, he held multiple positions, which provided him knowledge in various areas of a dealership. Royce’s knowledge and personality helped him move forward as he continued his career with the Komatsu factory located in Covington, Georgia. Later, an opportunity came up at Lift Systems of Georgia where he was able to continue to develop his professional skills and increase his networking base. Royce also served as a Regional Manager for Nissan Forklift Corporation in Marengo, Illinois.
Royce began his career with TVH in 2005 and quickly became an invaluable asset to the Business Development Team. He loved being a part of the TVH family and especially enjoyed getting to know each and every one of his customers. His sense of humor, dedication, and all-around amazing attitude will be greatly missed by all those who knew him. Royce spent over 30 years in the material handling industry.
Outside of work Royce was a collector of hobbies including hunting, fishing, motorcycles, golf, and guitars. However, his love of nature couldn’t compare to the love he had for his family. Royce’s passion for life and ability to empower those around him will be greatly missed.
