Toyota remains global forklift leader

Toyota remains global forklift leader

Toyota has once again been confirmed as the world's largest supplier of fork lift trucks, according to the latest rankings published by influential German magazine dhf-intralogistik.

Combined global sales of its brands - Toyota, Raymond, CESAB and BT - accounted for 22.06% in 2014/15 (up from 20.72%) of the world market in turnover, according to the calculations of dhf-intralogistik. The Kion Group - with brands including Linde, Still, OM, Fenwick and Baoli - remained in a solid second place with 15.66%, slipping back again slightly from the previous year (16.39%).

These two were once again well clear of Jungheinrich in third with 8.36% of the market, almost exactly the same as the previous year's 8.35%.

Completing the top five global manufacturers were Nacco - its Yale and Hyster brands are distributed in the UK by Briggs Equipment - and another US-owned manufacturer Crown Equipment, each of them holding the same positions as in 2013/14 with 6.97% and 6.30% market share respectively.

Once again, the only change to the top 10 from a year ago is by Mitsubishi, which leap-frogged over Cargotec to move into sixth place.

The top 10 was completed by Manitou and Anhui Heli.
