Toyota named #1 forklift brand for 15th straight year

Thursday, September 21, 2017

For 15 consecutive years, Toyota Forklifts has earned the title of the world’s top forklift supplier. Peerless Media Network recently released its Annual Top 20 Lift Truck Suppliers list, which ranks forklift brands based on worldwide sales, and once again named Toyota as the #1 supplier.

In 2017, Toyota acquired two systems integrators and released new products in several industry categories. The innovations and acquisitions helped keep the company in the top spot with $8.6 billion dollars in worldwide revenue, $2.7 billion more than the next brand on the list. Toyota has more than 60 dealers with over 220 locations in North America.

“Toyota Forklifts is customer-driven, which contributes to Toyota's position as a top brand in the world,” said Jeff Rufener, president of Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. “We are committed to safety, reliability and low cost of ownership. Those things keep Toyota Forklifts in the industry-leading position in a highly competitive global forklift marketplace. Our extensive dealer network and exceptional associates are another part of the formula that keeps Toyota at the top of the list,” said Rufener.

In order to receive consideration for the Top 20 Lift Truck Suppliers ranking released by Modern Materials Handling each year, companies must manufacture and sell forklifts in at least one of the seven Industrial Truck Associations’ (ITA) truck classes. The forklifts manufactured and sold by Toyota are in six of those classes.
