Toyota Material Handling North America Announces Research Facility

Toyota Material Handling North America (TMHNA) will establish an advanced energy storage solutions development, prototyping and test center in Henrietta, New York. The forward-thinking research and development center, located at 1565 Jefferson Road, will see TMHNA collaborate with Rochester area energy storage resources to further support its own and Toyota Industries’ advanced energy solutions technology efforts, including lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. As a result, TMHNA has committed to creating up to 40 new jobs. The company expects to begin preparational activities at the site immediately and be operational at the testing center in the spring. Currently, TMHNA employs 2,560 workers statewide.

TMHNA is a trusted source of quality and reliable products and is committed to being a total material handling solutions provider from forklifts to energy solutions to automation technology. Toyota Material Handling and The Raymond Corporation have a combined 150 years in the industry, providing total solutions, including the latest research and advancements in alternative energy and forklift battery technology, being the first U.S. manufacturer to establish UL certification for an integrated lithium-ion battery and forklift solution.

Empire State Development, New York’s chief economic development agency, is assisting the company with the project by providing up to $1.5 million through the performance-based Excelsior Jobs Tax Credit program. County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency and Greater Rochester Enterprise also provided support for the venture. The total project cost has been placed at a little more than $2 million. The company had considered locating its new, state-of-the-art R & D facility elsewhere, but selected the Finger Lakes region due to its world-renowned reputation for available top-notch talent and its innovative technology base.
