Toyota Forklift Parts - Since 1992, Toyota Material Handling inc., U.S.A., also referred to as TMHU, have been the top selling lift truck supplier in the U.S. Proudly celebrating more than 40 years of operations, the Irvine, California established company presents a comprehensive line of quality lift vehicles. Due to their history of excellence, reliability, and resilience, Toyota remains prevalent in this aggressive 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, located in Columbus, Indiana. The bulk of the Toyota lift trucks sold in the U.S. are built here.
All Toyota machines and parts built within North America adhere to the International Organization for Standardization or ISO 14001 standard. The Columbus TIEM plant has been honored on many occasions for its dedication to continuous development 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 policies.
Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A. - The Industry Leader
The head of Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Brett Wood believes that TMHU's achievement comes from its dedication to construct high quality lift trucks while offering superb client assistance 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 called TICO, is listed in Fortune Magazine as the world's biggest lift truck provider and is among the magazines celebrated World's Most Admired Companies.
New Meaning to Environmental Accountability
Toyota Industries Corporation, as the parent company, has instilled a rich company doctrine of environmental stewardship in Toyota. Not many other companies and no other lift truck maker can equal Toyota's record of caring for the environment while simultaneously advancing the economy. Environmental responsibility is an important feature of corporate decision making at Toyota and they are proud to be the first and only maker 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.
Toyota originally released the 8-Series line of lift trucks in 2006, 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 creation is a lift vehicle that creates 70% less smog forming emissions than the existing Federal standards allow.
Also in 2006, Toyota developed a relationship with the Arbor Day Foundation, furthering their dedication to the environment. In excess of 57,000 trees have been planted in local parks and national forests damaged by ecological causes such as fires, as a result of this relationship. 10,500 seedlings have also been spread through Toyota Industrial Equipment's system of dealers to non-profit organizations and neighborhood customers to help sustain communities all over the United States
Toyota's lift trucks offer enhanced efficiency, visibility, ergonomics and resilience, and most importantly, the industry's leading safety technology. The company's System of Active Stability, also referred to as "SAS", helps decrease the possibility of mishaps and accidental injuries, in addition to increasing productivity levels while minimizing the likelihood of merchandise and equipment damage.
System Active Stability senses many factors that could lead to lateral insecurity and likely lateral overturn. When any of those factors are detected, SAS instantaneously engages the Swing Lock Cylinder to stabilize the rear axle. This changes the lift truck's stability trajectory from triangular in shape to rectangular, providing a major increase in stability which substantially reduces the likelihood of a mishap 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.
SAS was first released to the market on the 7-Series internal combustion products in 1999 and subsequently catapulted Toyota into the industry leader for safety. Since then, SAS continues to be integrated into the majority of Toyota's internal combustion products. It is standard gear on the new 8-Series. There are more than 100,000 SAS-equipped lift vehicles in action, exceeding 450 million hours combined. The increased population of SAS-equipped vehicles in the field, along with required operator instruction, overturn fatalities across all models have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Also, there have been an overall 35.5% fall in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and tip overs from a lift truck for the same period.
Toyota's rigid standards continue far beyond the machinery itself. The company believes in providing extensive Operator Safety Training courses to help users satisfy and exceed OSHA standard 1910.178. Education programs, videos and a variety of materials, covering a wide scope of matters-from personal safety, to OSHA regulations, to surface and cargo conditions, are offered through the dealer network.
Toyota has sustained a relentless existence in the United States ever since its first sale. In 2009, Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing, produced its 350,000th lift truck. This reality is demonstrated by the statistic that 99% of Toyota lift trucks sold in America now are built in the United States.
Based in Columbus, Ind., the Toyota Industrial Equipment Mfg. campus equals 998,000 square feet of facilities spanning 126 acres. Facilities include a National Customer Center, as well as manufacturing operations and supply centers for equipment and service components, with the total commitment exceeding $113 million dollars.
The new National Customer Center was conceived to serve both dealers and consumers of TMHU. The facility includes a 360-degree display room, a presentation theater complete with stadium seating for 32, an area for live product demonstrations with seating capability for 120; a presentation theater; Toyota's Hall of Fame showcasing Toyota's history since the birth of its originator, Sakichi Toyoda, in 1867, and finally a training center.
The NCC embodies Toyota's commitment to providing top-notch client service. TMHU's 68 certified Toyota Industrial Equipment, or TIE dealers, along with 189 dealership locations all over the U.S, present the most complete and inclusive consumer service and support in the industry.
