Toyota Material Handling USA Inc (TMHU) has announced that, for the third consecutive year, it has been ranked the largest forklift supplier in the US by an independent researcher.

Crist Information & Research named Toyota the country's number one selling full-line forklift supplier in 2002, 2003, and 2004.
TMHU president and CEO Dr Shankar Basu said 2004 was a strong year for the company.

"We attribute our ongoing success to Toyota's overall value, leadership in technology and, mostly, our strong dealer support," Basu said.

"We are entering our 38th year in the US and are ready to further expand our leadership position in servicing customers," he said.
There are currently 70 authorised Toyota Industrial Equipment dealers with a total of 186 dealership locations throughout the US. TMHU is headquartered in Irvine, California, and most of its forklifts sold in the US are manufactured in Columbus, Indiana.

Crist Information & Research is an information and research service provider for the forklift industry, based in California.
