Toyota to acquire VNA forklift business from DAMBACH Lagersysteme

Toyota Material Handling Europe, a leading material handling equipment supplier, and DAMBACH Lagersysteme GmbH & Co. KG (Dambach), a leading supplier of automatic storage and retrieval machines, announce today that they have agreed on the sale of the DAMBACH Very Narrow Aisle forklifts (VNA) interest to Toyota Material Handling Europe.

DAMBACH has been a supplier of a number of VNA truck models to Toyota for over 10 years. Under the new agreement production of BT brand VNA trucks will be moved from Bischweier in Germany to the Toyota factory in Mjölby in Sweden.

“VNA trucks made by DAMBACH have been included in our product portfolio for many years. Dambach have now made the strategic decision to focus on their core stacker crane business and Toyota Material Handling will integrate the Dambach range into the existing VNA range produced in our factory in Mjölby under TPS (Toyota Production System) standard.” says Mike Mathias, Managing Director for Toyota Material Handling UK.

Mathias adds “We are confident that this exciting development will further strengthen our customer offer for the highest quality VNA products and service designed to match any operator’s individual requirements”.
