New Meaning to Environmental Accountability
Toyota's parent company, Toyota Industries Corporation, has imparted an excellent company philosophy towards environmental management within Toyota. Toyota's loaded history of environmental protection whilst retaining economic viability cannot be matched by other companies and certainly no other materials handling maker can yet rival Toyota. Environmental accountability is an important characteristic of corporate decision making at Toyota and they are proud to be the first and only producer to offer UL-listed, EPA - and CARB -certified Compressed Natural Gas powered lift vehicles. 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 principles, and also meets California's more intricate 2010 emission standards. The end invention is a lift truck that creates 70 percent fewer smog forming emissions than the present Federal standards tolerate.
What's more in 2006, Toyota developed an affiliation with the Arbor Day Foundation, furthering their obligation to the environment. In excess of 57,000 trees have been planted in community parks and national forests damaged by ecological reasons such as fires, as a result of this partnership. 10,500 seedlings have also been scattered through Toyota Industrial Equipment's network of dealers to non-profit organizations and neighborhood customers to help sustain communities all over the United States
Toyota's lift trucks provide superior productivity, visibility, ergonomics and durability, and most significantly, the industry's leading safety technology. The company's System of Active Stability, also referred to as "SAS", helps reduce the risk of mishaps and accidental injuries, in addition to increasing productivity levels while minimizing the likelihood of merchandise and equipment breakage.
System Active Stability senses numerous elements that may lead to lateral volatility and possible lateral overturn. When one of those conditions are detected, SAS instantly engages the Swing Lock Cylinder to steady the rear axle. This adjusts the lift truck's stability trajectory 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 helps to avoid injuries or accidents while adding strength.
The SAS systems were initially adopted on the 7-Series internal combustion lift vehicles which were put on the market in 1999. These systems helped drive Toyota into the lead for industry safety standards. Now, SAS is adopted on virtually every new internal combustion products and is standard equipment for 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 education, overturn fatalities across all designs have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Furthermore, there have been an overall 35.5% drop in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and tip overs from a lift vehicle for the same period.
Toyota's hardnosed values reach far beyond the technology itself. The company believes in providing extensive Operator Safety Training services to help clients satisfy and exceed OSHA standard 1910.178. Education courses, video tutorials and a variety of materials, covering a broad scope of matters-from personal safety, to OSHA policies, to surface and cargo conditions, are offered through the seller network.
Since the sale of its first lift vehicle in the U.S. to the manufacture of its 350,000th lift vehicle produced in 2009 at Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing, TMHU has sustained a solid presence in the U.S. This fact is demonstrated by the statistic that 99% of Toyota lift trucks bought in America now are manufactured in the United States.
