Toyota Material Handling U.S.A., Inc.
1 Park Plaza
Irvine, CA, 92623-7419

Press release date: January 9, 2013

The new French branch of TMHE will cover both sales and support for Toyota and BT forklifts across France

1st January 2013 will see the new company, Toyota Material Handling France (TMH France), come into effect.

The network will be developed using the framework of the existing BT France organization and will consist of 34 dealers distributed throughout the country. It will handle the sales and support of both electric and IC-powered Toyota forklifts as well as BT warehouse trucks.

We have always recognized the importance of the French market and have benefitted from a strong operation there since 1974 stated Matthias Fischer, President of Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE). By combining the strength, experience and talent within the BT France operation with that of our new, additional dealer network, we can offer a unique level of coverage, competence and support within the French market.

Customers in France will benefit from a network that includes 80 locations, 150 sales personnel and 450 fully trained service engineers able to work across the entire range of products.

Our aim is to stay close to our customers and to fully understand and support their business needs, explains Patrick Protais, President of TMH France. Despite the size of the country we are able to give our customers the confidence of knowing that there will be an experienced technician within 25km, wherever they are located. We have divided France into 8 regions to manage our operations, with the competence that we have brought forward from our BT France operation which is now further strengthened with 34 dealers.

TMH France plans to open a new centre of expertise dedicated to counterbalance trucks in the western region in June 2013, in addition to the two fleet management centres already established in Bussy in the Paris region and Dagneux near Lyon.
