In addition, plans to locate technicians in the outlying areas of the province, including Mthatha and Queenstown, will bring Toyota Industrial Equipment’s expertise right to the doorstep of its customer base, enhancing service and response time.

Toyota Forklift delegates at the opening will include global and local representation, with Yoichiro Yamazaki from Toyota Industrial Corporation (TICO), Hiroyoshi Yoshika from Toyota Tsusho Corporation (TTC) togetherwith Gary Neubert and Shumani Tshifularo from Toyota Industrial Equipment, as well as Vuyo Bangazi, General Manager of the Eastern Cape region for Toyota Industrial Equipment.
