Dear Team Toyota,
The recent events and growing media coverage surrounding Toyota Motor Corporation’s motor vehicle accelerator pedal issue have led to questions about whether this issue faced by Toyota’s automotive division affects the industrial equipment division of Toyota.

I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you, our highly respected dealers, and our valued customers that this design issue in no way affects any industrial products distributed by Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. (TMHU). All Toyota industrial lift trucks, tow tractors and aerial work platforms (branded as Aichi) fall under the responsibility of Toyota Industries Corporation (TICO), which utilizes completely different engineers, manufacturing facilities and suppliers.

Should your industrial equipment customers have additional concerns after reviewing this information, please feel free to contact TMHU’s Product Support department at
(949) 223-7755 or ProductSupport@tmhu.com.

Brett Wood
