We are Forklift manufacturer established by the joint investment of Sumitomo Heavy lndustries, Ltd.and Hyster-Yale Materials Handling Inc. in USA as the world's top-ranked forklift manufacturer.



Seeking to be a trusted and valued partner company
at your materials handling sites.

Ever since it was founded in 1970, Sumitomo NACCO Forklift Co., Ltd. has been providing forklift trucks and other materials handling equipment to customers in Japan, Asia, and the rest of the world. Over the course of all those years, we have continued to grow based upon "SUMITOMO SPIRIT," which holds trust in high esteem. Along the way, we have continued to work in cooperation with long-standing American company Hyster-Yale Group, one of the world's top-ranking forklift manufacturers.

Our mission is to contribute to our customers as a reliable partner that always delivers satisfaction, by staying close to their materials handling sites and providing high-value products, services, and information through the concerted efforts of our manufacturing, sales, and service divisions. To that end, we will listen to our customers' voices more than ever before, and unite our forces so we can continue to deliver value.

We have also worked on developing and launching highly energy-efficient battery-powered forklifts and IoT-based services. Products such as these will help our customers use our forklifts safely and efficiently, and contribute to creating a sustainable circular economy. Against a background of serious labor shortages and demands to adapt to new lifestyles, the ways materials are handled are going to change drastically in the coming years. This will in turn require new approaches to things like labor-saving and automation. We will think about our customers' issues by stepping into their shoes, and take action with quality and speed in mind. By doing so, we will aim to always be a partner they can rely on.

We will be deeply grateful for your continued guidance and support.
