The History of TCM Forklifts
Founded in 1949, TCM, otherwise known as Toyo Carrier Manufacturing Co. Ltd, began as a crafty inventor that supplied Japan with their first forklift in 1949. This success was soon followed up by the first export of these devices to Taiwan in 1950 and subsequently the completion of the FE-T-275, Toyo’s first electronic forklift. TCM is known as a figurehead in the material handling and manufacturing industry, collaborating with fellow industry chieftain, Clark. 1960 would serve to be another landmark campaign for Toyo, constructing the first torque-converted forklift in the world.
Globally Expanding and Networking
TCM would only continue to expand its global prevalence throughout the latter half of the twentieth century, and would soon establish depots and headquarters in Belgium, South Africa and West Germany. By the end of the twentieth century, TCM would fully evolve into a world-wide conglomerate, affiliating with organizations across the world to develop the best material handling technology. Additionally, TCM would also establish strongholds in France and Thailand. In 2006, Toyo Carrier Manufacturing hosted an inaugural world conference in Bangkok. Today, TCM has subsidized Hitachi and Nissan construction machinery into their overall network of operations.
