Toyota Forklifts have been named the world’s top forklift supplier for the 15th year in a row. Peerless Media Network released its Annual Top 20 Lift Truck Suppliers list this month and named Toyota as the No. 1 supplier. In 2017, Toyota acquired two systems integrators and released new products in several industry categories, according to a company news release. The innovations and acquisitions kept the company in the top spot with $8.6 billion in worldwide revenue, $2.7 billion more than the next brand on the list. Toyota has 60 dealers with more than 220 locations in North America.
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 seven Industrial Truck Associations’ truck classes. Toyota’s forklifts are in six of those classes.
