World Class Manufacturing:A Rigorous Standard of Excellence
Hyster-Yale lift trucks are crafted at 12 world-class, ISO-certified manufacturing facilities located in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Our global manufacturing network enables Hyster-Yale to remain responsive to regional and even local needs in the materials handling markets.
Each Hyster-Yale manufacturing site uses state-of-the-art fabrication and testing to ensure all lift trucks exceed application requirements. Processes we use to ensure world class manufacturing include:
- Certified ISO 9001 – Global Registration
- Certified ISO 14001 – Environmental
- Demand Flow Technology (DFT)
- 100% Product Audits
- Corrective and Preventative Action Process (CAPA)
Using computer-based and physical testing, each finished lift truck must conform to a rigorous standard of excellence that checks for stability, noise and vibration, ergonomic functioning, service access, performance and much more. In addition, each lift truck is subjected to an exhaustive battery of physical and field tests designed to ensure that every component is built to last.
