Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) has inducted a record 14 apprentice forklift technicians in its annual intake, ensuring a solid skills support base for the future.

The company this year received 826 applications for apprenticeships from around the country.

The 14 new apprentices, accompanied by mentors from their respective TMHA branches, were recently inducted and received their tools of trade at TMHA's Sydney headquarters.

TMHA president and CEO Steve Takacs - who began his career as a forklift technician - was on hand to welcome the inductees.

TMHA national technical advisor and trainer Gerry Larney says 14 apprentices is a record annual intake and continues Toyota's commitment to industry-leading skills training.

"We currently have 35 apprentices completing their four-year courses across our 18 branches and a total of 450 staff in product support roles," he says.  "TMHA views the apprentice program as a cornerstone in providing the highest levels of product support. It is a real investment in our future, as today's apprentices are tomorrow's technicians."
