From family-owned beginnings in 1922, to our position as the North American leader in electric lift trucks, Raymond has the proven expertise developing and deploying custom material handling solutions that increase efficiencies and boost productivity. Raymond is widely recognized for its innovation and its consistent ability to improve warehouse operations.
That approach to satisfying customer needs began with our founder, George G. Raymond, Sr., an efficiency engineer, and his development of the first hand hydraulic lift truck. It continued with the invention of the double-faced wooden pallet in the 1930s, and then our introduction of the narrow aisle concept in the 1950s, with the first Reach-Fork® lift truck.
We introduced the Swing-Reach® truck in the 1970s. As technology rapidly improved, we launched the first microprocessor controlled lift truck in North America in 1986.
We proudly offer an entire portfolio of AC electric lift trucks that will satisfy any need you have. Plus, only Raymond can provide you with iWarehouse®, the world's most advanced lift truck fleet optimization system. Looking ahead, we are committed to continue the development of fuel cell technologies.
Built on the foundation of our comprehensive experience in all facets of materials handling, you can count on Raymond... and our pursuit of perfection--to deliver superior materials handling solutions for your business.
