Redefining Environmental Accountability
Toyota's parent company, Toyota Industries Corporation, has imparted an exceptional corporate principles towards environmental conservancy within Toyota. Toyota's rich history of environmental protection whilst retaining economic viability cannot be matched by other companies and unquestionably no other resource handling manufacturer can yet rival Toyota. Environmental accountability is an important aspect of company decision making at Toyota and they are proud to be the first and only producer to offer UL-listed, EPA- and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas powered lift vehicles. Yet one more reason they remain a leader within the industry.
In 2006, Toyota introduced the 8-Series line. The 8-Series signifies both Toyota's innovation and leadership in the industry. It features an exclusive emission system that surpasses Federal EPA emission principles, and also meets California's more involved 2010 emission standards.

Toyota's lift trucks offer enhanced output, visibility, ergonomics and durability, and most significantly, the industry's leading safety technology. The company's System of Active Stability, also referred to as "SAS", helps lessen the chance of accidents and injuries, in addition to increasing productivity levels while minimizing the likelihood of product and equipment breakage.
System Active Stability is able to perceive conditions that might lead to lateral volatility and possible lateral overturn. When any of these factors have been detected, the SAS will instantly engage the Swing Lock Cylinder to re-stabilize the rear axle. This alters the lift truck's stability trajectory from triangular in shape to rectangular, offering a major increase in stability which substantially reduces the likelihood of an accident from a lateral overturn. The Active Mast Function Controller or the Active Control Rear Stabilizer also aids to avoid injuries or accidents while adding durability.
SAS was first launched to the market on the 7-Series internal combustion products in 1999 and subsequently catapulted Toyota into the industry leader for safety. Ever since then, SAS has been integrated into nearly all of Toyota's internal combustion products. It is standard equipment on the latest 8-Series. There are more than 100,000 SAS-equipped lift trucks in action, exceeding 450 million hours combined. The increased population of SAS-equipped vehicles in the field, along with required worker instruction, overturn fatalities across all brands have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Furthermore, there has been an overall 35.5% drop in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and overturn from a lift vehicle for the same period.
Toyota's uncompromising principles extend far beyond the technology itself. The company believes in providing general Operator Safety Training services to help users meet and exceed OSHA standard 1910.178. Training programs, videos and various materials, covering a wide scope of subjects-from personal safety, to OSHA policies, to surface and load conditions, are offered through the seller network.
Toyota has maintained a relentless existence in the United States ever since its first sale. In 2009, Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing, produced its 350,000th lift vehicle. This fact is demonstrated by the statistic that 99% of Toyota lift trucks bought in America today are manufactured in the United States.
