The Toyota Material Handling International (TMHI) President’s Award is the highest honour available in the global Toyota forklift awards category, with 72 TMHI distributors competing annually.

TMHA was recognised as the top national Toyota forklift distributor in the world for sales and customer support categories, taking into account equipment sales, services and parts performance, and overall business productivity.

Australia’s forklift distributorship received a second Toyota international award, winning the TMHI Vision 2020 Award.

The newly promoted TMHA president and CEO Steve Takacs accepted the two awards from Toyota Industries Corporation (TICO) president Mr Akira Onishi at a TMHI Distributor conference in Nagoya.

Takacs says achieving a hat trick of TMHI President's Awards confirms the strength of TMHA.

"Winning this award for the third time against increasingly strong competition around the world confirms the continued strength of the TMHA business," he says.

"It is a real feather in our cap and fitting reward for the hard work by our 750 staff in delivering industry best service and support nationally for our customers.

"The TMHI President's Award recognises sustained growth in the business and improved safety for our staff," he says. "The Japanese highly value what is termed business levelling and we would term consistency, and TMHA has achieved that with sustained growth in profit and market share," Takacs adds.

Takacs says the Vision 2020 Award was an added win for TMHA.

"The criteria for Vision 2020 was to create a plan for where the business is heading in terms of structure, growth, human resources, finance and legals - in fact all areas of the business."

"We had to submit a full plan across the nation for all aspects of the business," Takacs says. "It is our goal to be the Australia's trusted total solutions supplier for all our customers' warehousing and material handling needs," he adds.
