Toyota Design

At the Toyota Design Centre we develop raw ideas into Toyota forklifts and warehouse design while focusing on innovation, quality, efficiency, user-friendliness and sustainability. Inspired by the Toyota values on one hand and industry trends on the other, we design material handling solutions with our customers in mind.

Toyota Design Centre

Innovative product design is a full-time discipline and means our pallet trucks and forklifts constantly evolve.

Our design centre is a creative and dynamic environment with dedicated professionals who are eager to move the world of material handling into the future. Our designs are not just about aesthetics, they also provide the perfect balance between  safety, durability, productivity, driveability and simplicity; Toyota's core value. These values are paramount to the design process and are ultimately expressed in the form and function of the final product.
