In an independent survey conducted by Peerless Media Research Group in the United States, forklift brand Hyster® ranked No. 1 in the category of total cost of ownership. Based on current U.S. customer ratings, Hyster led all full-line lift truck manufacturers.
"Being recognized by the marketplace as the lift truck provider with the lowest total cost of operations is positive proof that Hyster delivers true value to its customers", said Jonathan Dawley, President, Hyster Company Distribution. "It is our constant interaction and involvement with our dealer network that allows us to blend smart products and services with a full line of tough, reliable, purpose-built lift trucks with the lowest operating costs."
Peerless Media Research Group conducted the study in July 2011. The study was conducted from amongst its Modern Materials Handling magazine subscriber base who are involved in the purchase process of lift trucks for their company.
