Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A. - The Industry Leader
Brett Wood, President of TMHU, associates Toyota's success to its robust commitment to manufacture the finest quality lift vehicles at the same time as delivering the utmost client service and support. "We must be able to learn and predict the needs of our customers," said Brett Wood. "As a leader, our success also depends on our ability to address our customers' operational, safety and environmental cost issues." TMHU's parent company, Toyota Industries Corporation, also called TICO, is listed in Fortune Magazine as the world's largest lift truck dealer and is among the magazines celebrated World's Most Admired Companies.
Redefining Environmental Responsibility
Toyota Industries Corporation, as the parent company, has instilled a rich company doctrine of environmental stewardship in Toyota. Not a lot of other companies and no other lift truck manufacturer can equal Toyota's history of caring for the environment while concurrently stimulating the economy. Environmental accountability is an important aspect of company decision making at Toyota and they are proud to be the first and only maker to offer UL-listed, EPA- and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas powered lift vehicles. Yet one more reason they remain a leader within the industry.
Toyota first introduced the 8-Series line of lift trucks in 2006, yet again exhibiting its leadership and innovation in the industry. Featuring an exclusive emission system that eclipsed both Federal EPA emission values, and California's more environmentally friendly emission standards. The end invention is a lift vehicle that produces 70% less smog forming emissions than the existing Federal standards allow.
Also starting in 2006, jointly with the Arbor Day Foundation, Toyota added to its commitment to the natural environment. To this day more than 58,000 trees have been embedded in the ground throughout state forests and community parks that were damaged by fires and other environmental causes. 10,500 seedlings have also been scattered through Toyota Industrial Equipment's network of dealers to non-profit organizations and neighborhood consumers to help sustain communities all over the U.S.
Toyota's lift trucks provide superior output, visibility, ergonomics and resilience, and most notably, the industry's leading safety technology. The company's System of Active Stability, often known as "SAS", helps decrease the chance of accidents and injuries, and increasing productivity levels while minimizing the potential for merchandise and equipment breakage.
System Active Stability is able to sense factors that may lead to lateral unsteadiness and possible lateral overturn. When one of these conditions have been detected, the SAS will instantly engage the Swing Lock Cylinder to re-stabilize the rear axle. This adjusts the lift truck's stability trajectory from triangular in shape to rectangular, providing a major increase in stability which substantially reduces the likelihood of an accident from a lateral overturn. The Active Mast Function Controller or the Active Control Rear Stabilizer also aids to prevent injuries or accidents while adding stability.
The SAS systems were originally adopted on the 7-Series internal combustion lift vehicles which were put on the market in 1999. These systems helped push Toyota into the lead for industry safety standards. Now, SAS is used on nearly every new internal combustion products and is standard equipment for the new 8-Series. There are more than 100,000 SAS-equipped lift vehicles in operation, exceeding 450 million hours combined. The increased population of SAS-equipped vehicles in the field, along with required operator instruction, overturn fatalities across all designs have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Additionally, there has been an overall 35.5% fall in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and tip overs from a lift vehicle for the same period.
Toyota's pattern of brilliance reaches far beyond its technological achievements. The company maintains a widespread Operator Safety Training curriculum to help users meet OSHA standard 1910.178. Training courses, video tutorials and a variety of resources, covering a wide scope of matters-from personal safety, to OSHA policies, to surface and load situations, are offered through the dealer network.
Ever since the sale of its first lift vehicle in the U.S. to the fabrication of its 350,000th lift truck produced in 2009 at Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing, TMHU has sustained a solid presence in the U.S. This reality is demonstrated by the statistic that 99% of Toyota lift trucks sold in America at the moment are built in the United States.
TMHU is based in Columbus Indiana and houses nearly 1 million square feet of production facilities over 126 acres of land. Facilities include a National Customer Center, as well as production operations and distribution centers for equipment and service parts, with the whole investment exceeding $113 million dollars.
