<< Prev 1 of 2 Next >>

For the third consecutive year Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. (TMHU) ranked number one as the lift truck buyers and specifiers consider safest in a recent study conducted by Peerless Research Group on Lift Truck Safety.* Toyota also rated highest in an evaluation of what specific brand prospective lift truck purchasers consider to have the fewest safety-related incidents and  be the most affordable to maintain in terms of safety. “Safety is always a top priority for our company and our industry,” said Jeff Rufener, president of TMHU. “It is especially gratifying to have forklift buyers rank us as the safest lift truck brand.”  The study was conducted with qualified readers of Modern Materials Handling magazine to better understand and track which lift truck safety issues are most important and which companies are regarded as manufacturers of the safest lift trucks. Those surveyed were selected from subscribers who are involved in the use, evaluation and purchase of lift trucks and lift truck accessories. Comments received from the respondents included:  “The SAS [System of Active Stability] system is fantastic.” “We have used these trucks for years without any safety issues.” “Because year-after-year their trucks have proven themselves safe in our own warehouses.”
