GREENE, N.Y. - "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian," a new comedy film starring actor Ben Stiller, features Raymond® lift trucks in several scenes. In this second installment of the "Museum" series, Raymond lift trucks play a role in the warehouse at the Smithsonian Institution, where exhibits literally come alive and an adventure unfolds within the corridors.
For filming, G.N. Johnston Equipment Co., Ltd. (Mississauga, Ontario), a Sales and Service Center for The Raymond Corporation, provided the "Night at the Museum" production team with seven Raymond lift trucks, including batteries and chargers, while it was filming in Vancouver, British Columbia, from May through September 2008. The lift trucks used included one Reach-Fork® truck, 4-wheel sit-down counterbalanced trucks, walkie pallet trucks and hand pallet trucks.
"This was an exciting and unique opportunity for Raymond," says James Locker, president and COO for Johnston Equipment. "We were happy to be part of such a popular movie series, and we look forward to spotting the Raymond trucks on the big screen."
