All Toyota Material Handling’s European factories and local entities undergo this yearly survey, which results in the individual scoring of each entity. This responds to customers’ requests at local level – which have continued to increase since 2020.
Over 50% of TMHE local entities are now achieving Gold or Platinum scores, meaning they are individually at the same level as the top 10% best rated companies. As of today, Toyota Material Handling UK, Toyota Material Handling Italia, and Toyota Material Handling Manufacturing France have achieved the Platinum label, while 11 other local operations have achieved the Gold standard.
In 2018, Toyota Material Handling Europe also received the first ever Supplier Excellence Award from EcoVadis for ‘Best Group Engagement’. The award represented Toyota’s commitment to transparency on the performance of all local entities, Gold rating for 30% of subsidiaries, and a top 3% ranking in the industry.
