Company History: It was in 1949 when Toyo Carriers Manufacturing Co., Ltd., the predecessor of Mitsubishi Logisnext, manufactured the first “Made in Japan” internal combustion engine forklift truck. The first four trucks were delivered to the maritime bureau of Kobe city. This first truck had features equivalently used in the today’s forklift. For examples, the hydraulic system for lifting / lowering forks, rear steering and lifting lever on the right side of driver’s seat. This is the origin of TCM, the abbreviation of Toyo Carriers Manufacturing.

Since then, the company expanded the sales in the overseas markets as well as creating a high market presence in the Japan. Today, with the product line-up including internal combustion engine forklifts, electric counterbalanced forklifts, reach trucks and skid steer loaders, TCM has been a brand highly recognized in the material handling industry all over the world.

Brief History: Japan is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean with dense cities, imperial palaces, mountainous national parks and thousands of shrines and temples. Shinkansen bullet trains connect the main islands of Kyushu (with Okinawa's subtropical beaches), Honshu (home to Tokyo and Hiroshima’s atomic-bomb memorial) and Hokkaido (famous for skiing). Tokyo, the capital, is known for skyscrapers, shopping and pop culture.

Although legend has it that Japan was founded in 660BC, archaeologists agree that settlement in the Japanese archpelago dates back as far as 100,000 years. The Jomon Period (8000-c.300BC) is the earliest that has been studied. It is named after the 'jomon' or cord-marked pattern style of pottery of the period.
