Progressive Australian recreational vehicle manufacturer, Jayco has extended its decade-long partnership with Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) by taking delivery of new BT reach truck forklifts.
A manufacturer of Australian-made recreational vehicles, Jayco’s relationship with TMHA for materials handling solutions goes back to 1999.
Jayco recently purchased three additional reach trucks for everyday operations at its Dandenong distribution centre. Warehouse manager Owen Donohue said that Toyota's comprehensive after-sales service has made it easy for Jayco to carry out its work.
The BT reach trucks play an integral part in Jayco’s day-to-day line replenishment process with warehouse and stores operation involving over 300 pallets of stock each day.
Jayco's operations require the reach truck forklifts to run at full capacity for eight hours a day in order to get all stock received, stacked and prepared for delivery. Mr Donohue explains that equipment downtime is not an option for Jayco. The BTs start first time, run all day in all weather conditions and require very little maintenance to keep them running smoothly.
Recently, when it was necessary to purchase additional equipment, the warehouse staff voted for BT reach truck forklifts. Some of the benefits of BT reach trucks include ease of operation, functionality and reliability.
Cameron Paxton, TMHA's Southern Region general manager says that Toyota works hard to maintain its levels of customer service. Having pioneered specialist TAFE training for Australia's forklift technicians, Toyota has always been at the forefront of forklift technician training in the country.
