Toyota Forklift Parts - Since 1992, Toyota Material Handling inc., U.S.A., often known as TMHU, continues to be the best selling lift truck dealer in the U.S. Proudly celebrating more than 40 years of operations, the Irvine, California situated company provides a comprehensive line of quality lift vehicles. Thanks to their status of superiority, reliability, and sturdiness, Toyota remains prevalent in this competitive market. Quality is the cornerstone of Toyota's legendary Toyota Production System practiced at all manufacturing facilities, including TIEM, which is stands for Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing, situated in Columbus, Indiana. The bulk of the Toyota lift trucks sold in the U.S. are manufactured here.
Every one of Toyota's manufacturing facilities within Canada and the U.S. comply with the International Organization for Standardization or ISO 14001 standard. The Columbus TIEM plant has been honored on many occasions for its devotion to relentless progress and its environmentally friendly systems. It is the first and only producer to offer EPA and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas powered lift trucks on the market. For instance, the Toyota 8-Series IC lift trucks emit 70% less smog forming emissions than the current federal EPA standards and have complied with California's strict emission standards and regulations.
TMHU, U.S.A.- Leading the Industry
The president of Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Brett Wood feels that TMHU's success comes from its commitment to create high quality lift vehicles at the same time as providing excellent client support and service. "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 known as TICO, is listed in Fortune Magazine as the world's largest lift truck provider and is amongst the magazines celebrated World's Most Admired Companies.
New Meaning to 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 maker can equal Toyota's history of caring for the natural environment while simultaneously encouraging the economy. Environmental accountability is a key aspect of corporate decision making at Toyota and they are proud to be the first and only manufacturer to provide UL-listed, EPA- and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas powered lift trucks. Yet one more reason they remain a leader within the industry.
In 2006, Toyota introduced the 8-Series line. The 8-Series signifies both Toyota's innovation and leadership in the industry. It features an exclusive emission system that surpasses Federal EPA emission values, and also meets California's more involved 2010 emission standards. The end creation is a lift vehicle that produces 70 percent fewer smog forming emissions than the existing Federal standards allow.
Also in 2006, Toyota developed a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, furthering their commitment to the environment. Upwards of 57,000 trees have been planted in district parks and national forests damaged by ecological reasons such as fires, as a product of this relationship. 10,500 seedlings have also been spread through Toyota Industrial Equipment's network of dealers to non-profit organizations and neighborhood customers to help sustain communities all over the U.S.
Toyota's lift trucks offer improved stability, visibility, output, ergonomics, and all the leading safety equipment that has made Toyota an industry leader. The company's System of Active Stability, also known as "SAS", helps decrease the chance of accidents and accidental injuries, and increasing productivity levels while minimizing the potential for product and equipment breakage.
System Active Stability can discern circumstances that might 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 alters the lift truck's stability footprint 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 helps to prevent injuries or accidents while adding durability.
The SAS systems were originally utilized on the 7-Series internal combustion lift trucks which were put on the market in 1999. These systems helped push Toyota into the lead for industry safety standards. Now, SAS is adopted on almost every modern 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 mandatory worker education, overturn fatalities across all designs have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Additionally, there have been an overall 35.5% decrease in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and overturn from a lift truck for the same period.
Toyota's hardnosed values reach far beyond the technology itself. The company believes in offering widespread Operator Safety Training courses to help users satisfy and exceed OSHA standard 1910.178. Education packages, videos and assorted materials, covering a wide scope of subjects-from personal safety, to OSHA rules, to surface and cargo situations, are accessible through the dealer network.
Since the sale of its first lift truck in the U.S. to the manufacture of its 350,000th lift vehicle produced in 2009 at Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing, TMHU has continued 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.
Based in Columbus, Ind., the Toyota Industrial Equipment Mfg. campus equals 998,000 square feet of facilities across 126 acres. Facilities include a National Customer Center, as well as manufacturing operations and supply centers for equipment and service parts, with the whole commitment exceeding $113 million dollars.
