Toyota Forklift Part - In the United States, Toyota Materials Handling inc., or TMHU, continues to be the best selling lift truck dealer since 1992. Proudly celebrating more than 40 years of service, the Irvine, California situated company presents a comprehensive line of quality lift trucks. Owing to their status of superiority, reliability, and sturdiness, Toyota remains popular in this competitive market. Quality is the keystone of Toyota's notorious 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.A are built here.
All Toyota's manufacturing plants within Canada and the United States 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 continuous improvement and its environmentally friendly systems.

To illustrate, the Toyota 8-Series IC lift vehicles emit 70 percent less smog forming emissions than the existing federal EPA standards and have complied with California's strict emission standards and regulations.
Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A. - The Industry Leader
Brett Wood, President of TMHU, associates Toyota's accomplishment to its stout commitment to fabricating the finest quality lift trucks while delivering the utmost customer 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, often known as TICO, is listed in Fortune Magazine as the world's biggest lift truck dealer and is amongst the magazines prominent World's Most Admired Companies.
Redefining Environmental Accountability
Toyota Industries Corporation, as the parent company, has instilled a rich company doctrine of environmental stewardship in Toyota. Not many other organizations and no other lift truck maker can equal Toyota's record of protecting the environment while concurrently advancing the economy. Environmental accountability is a fundamental feature of company 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.
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 elaborate 2010 emission standards. The finished invention is a lift vehicle that creates 70% fewer smog forming emissions than the present Federal standards allow.
Also starting in 2006, collectively 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 national forests and neighborhood parks that were damaged by fires and other environmental causes. 10,500 seedlings have also been scattered through Toyota Industrial Equipment's system of sellers to non-profit organizations and neighborhood consumers to help sustain communities all over the United States
Toyota's lift trucks provide improved productivity, visibility, ergonomics and resilience, and most importantly, the industry's leading safety technology. The company's System of Active Stability, also called "SAS", helps lessen the possibility of accidents and accidental injuries, and increasing productivity levels while minimizing the likelihood of product and equipment breakage.
System Active Stability is able to perceive circumstances that might lead to lateral instability and potential lateral overturn. When any of these conditions have been detected, the SAS will instantly engage the Swing Lock Cylinder to re-stabilize the rear axle. This transitions the lift truck's stability footprint from triangular in shape to rectangular, providing a major increase in stability which substantially reduces the probability of an accident from a lateral overturn. The Active Mast Function Controller or the Active Control Rear Stabilizer also assists to prevent injuries or accidents while adding stability.
SAS was originally launched to the market on the 7-Series internal combustion models in 1999 and subsequently catapulted Toyota into the industry leader for safety. Since then, SAS has been built-in to most of Toyota's internal combustion machines. It is standard equipment on 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 trucks in the field, along with compulsory operator training, overturn fatalities across all models have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Also, there has been an overall 35.5% reduction in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and overturn from a lift vehicle for the same period.
Toyota's uncompromising principles continue far beyond the machinery itself. The company believes in providing widespread Operator Safety Training courses to help customers meet and exceed OSHA standard 1910.178. Instruction services, video tutorials and assorted resources, covering a wide scope of subjects-from personal safety, to OSHA rules, to surface and load situations, are available through the seller network.
Since the transaction 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 continued a unbroken existence in the U.S. This fact is demonstrated by the statistic that 99% of Toyota lift trucks bought 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 production operations and supply centers for equipment and service parts, with the entire commitment exceeding $113 million dollars.
The new National Customer Center was conceived to serve both dealers and buyers of TMHU. The facility includes a 360-degree showroom, 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 education center.
