Toyota Material Handling wins Gold award

Toyota Material Handling UK’s Fleet Management Centre (F.M.C.) has been awarded the prestigious Toyota Lean Academy (T.L.A.) ‘Gold Award’.

The T.L.A. Awards are an annual Toyota Material Handing Europe initiative driven by the Toyota Lean Academy to drive standards in the way of quality assurance, on-time delivery, environmental factors and health and safety. The grading of the Awards is Bronze, Silver and Gold.

The Fleet Management Centre is based in Old Dalby, Leicestershire and is responsible for all UK Short term rental (STR), Long term rental (LTR), and Demonstration (DEMO) trucks. The facility also supplies the outstanding “Approved Used” (AU) machines for the UK.

After achieving Silver status in 2019, Sean Reckless, FMC Workshop Manager was the project manager behind the successful bid to achieve Gold. Of the achievement, Sean said:

“The TLA Awards is a European-wide assessment and while as a collective we have been working hard over many years on driving efficiencies and standards throughout the F.M.C., the Awards provide an opportunity to focus on specific areas and recognise the progress within our facility, this gives us a great foundation to build from at the F.M.C.
