The Raymond Corporation is part of Toyota Industries Corporation and has developed to become a global provider of material handling equipment and intelligent intralogistics. The Raymond Corporation range of trucks are designed to optimise operations and engineered to improve ecological and economical performance.
The company started out as Lyon Iron Works, based in New York, where George G. Raymond patented the first hand pallet truck. The company’s equipment became a key component of logistics strategies for the US during WWII as well as aiding the transportation of machinery and food.
By 1951 George Raymond Senior and Christian D Gibson patented the power driven, narrow aisle material handling truck which forms this basis of modern narrow aisle trucks. The Lyon-Raymond Model 700 SpaceMaker truck was the first electric narrow aisle lift truck, establishing Lyon-Raymond as pioneers in the material handling industry. This lead to the introduction of the Swing-Reach ® truck in North America in the 1970’s.
The Raymond Corporation was eventually bought by Toyota Industries Corporation in 2000. On the 50th anniversary of the original patent for the hand pallet truck, Raymond launched the first AC-powered Reach-Fork® truck to be built in America. In the 2000’s Raymond continues to innovate, developing the first fuel cell-compatible order picker truck, introducing Lithium-ion battery powered lift trucks and developing a Virtual Reality Simulator for operator training.
As leading innovators in the industry Raymond have invested in the research and development of sustainability within the corporation. In 2021 Raymond were recognised for their commitment to energy- and water-saving solutions and use of sustainably sourced materials, resulting in achieving the Supply Demand Chain Executive 2021 Green Supply Chain Award.
