Greenville, N.C. – Food Logistics magazine recently announced that Hyster Company is one of its 2014 Top Green Providers for the company’s continued efforts in developing sustainable, yet durable lift trucks, capable of withstanding some of the most demanding challenges.

“The award by Food Logistics showcases the promise of the Hyster brand – to provide our customers with the right combination of intelligence and toughness,” said Brett Schemerhorn, vice president of marketing for Hyster. “Through innovative battery technologies or right-sized internal combustion engines (ICE) with reduced emissions, our lift trucks have the brains to match their brawn in whatever application our clients need. This mixture of abilities allows HysterŽ lift trucks to deliver performance and sustainability, which ultimately helps reduce our customers total cost of ownership.”

Hyster prides itself in offering an extensive breadth of environmentally friendly lift trucks—from zero emission electric models to ICE lift trucks with reduced emissions. The company focuses its efforts on engineering lift trucks that improve air quality through lower emissions and reduced energy consumption, as well as utilizing materials that reduce waste and increase recyclability.

Companies recognized as 2014 Top Green Providers in the June issue of Food Logistics (also available online), have shown initiative in incorporating green practices by providing customers with environmentally friendly products and services. Various industries were recognized this year, including food producers and manufacturers, 3PLs and transportation and logistics providers and equipment manufacturers.
