COLUMBUS, Ind. (Nov. 2, 2015) – Toyota Forklift once again achieved the number one position as the world’s largest forklift brand in Modern Materials Handling’s Annual Top 20 Lift Truck Suppliers list. Toyota’s worldwide sales totaled $7.7 billion, more than $2 billion higher than the second worldwide brand of forklifts on the list.
To be eligible for Modern’s annual Top 20 lift truck suppliers ranking, companies must manufacture and sell lift trucks in at least one of the Industrial Truck Association’s seven truck classes. Rankings are based on worldwide revenue from powered industrial trucks during each company’s most recent fiscal year.
“We are committed to expanding our product line to provide customers with material handling products and services to fit their needs,” said President Jeff Rufener. “Our product innovation and dedication to customers, dealers and associates is why we remain the top forklift brand year after year.”
Toyota introduced several new products to its customers and dealers this year, including a new Reach Truck, a new 80-Volt Electric and a High-Capacity IC forklift. The recent product launch culminates months of product development, with eight new Toyota models and services introduced in the last two years.
