    500,000 electric lift trucks designed and built…and counting

    Raymond manufactured our 500,000th electric lift truck in 2016. But we not only manufacture forklifts, we’re continually evolving to ensure we deliver efficient, effective and innovative forklifts, as well as end-to-end warehouse solutions tailored to meet our customers’ changing needs. Raymond’s core principles of innovation, quality and service keep our customers operations productive and efficient.

    “Everything you touch, eat, and wear has been moved with a forklift multiple times throughout the course of a day. It is a completely invisible industry to most people that has a great impact on our daily lives.”

    50,000 kaizens reached…with the help of over 1,600 employees

    Raymond follows Toyota Production System (TPS) principles in all areas of our operations. A major component of TPS is looking for efficiency and enhancing quality, and focusing on continuous improvement. That’s where 50,000 kaizens of incremental improvements over 10 years really adds up—thanks to all the efforts and participation from over 1,600 employees.

    "Part of our core DNA is around continuous improvement, and having our employees contribute good ideas for that improvement. Every year we get thousands of suggestions from our people. Some are small, some are big, but all are important. And we have a whole team that works on those.”

    Rick Harrington, Senior Vice President of Operations,
    The Raymond Corporation
