Toyota Industries Corporation was founded in 1926 by Sakichi Toyoda to manufacture and sell the automatic looms which he had invented and perfected. Since that time Toyota Industries has promoted diversification and expanded the scope of its business domains to include textile machinery, automobiles (vehicles, engines, car air-conditioning compressors, etc.), materials handling equipment, electronics, and logistics solutions.
With production bases in North America, Europe, and Asia (China and India), as well as a worldwide sales network, centered around our Materials Handling Equipment and Textile Machinery Segments, the operations of the Toyota Industries Group span the globe.
In November 2006, Toyota Industries celebrated its 80th anniversary. We remain committed to the further development of our businesses and the unwavering pursuit of sustained innovation and creativity.
