Jungheinrich® Product Named “International Forklift Truck Of The Year

July 02, 2013

HOUSTON (July 2, 2013) – Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), the provider of Jungheinrich lift trucks and narrow aisle products in the United States, Canada and Mexico, announced today that the Jungheinrich® ETV/ETM 216 moving mast reach truck was awarded as an “International Forklift Truck of the Year” (IFOY) in the Warehouse Trucks category. The IFOY Award ceremony, sponsored by the German Engineering Federation, recognizes the year’s best materials handling equipment and solutions in four categories.

IFOY Award winners, selected by a panel of international trade journalists, are recognized as the year's best new material handling equipment products.

“We’re proud to see the ETV/ETM 216 moving mast reach truck receive this recognition,” said Kent Eudy, executive vice president of sales and marketing at MCFA. “The ETV/ETM 216 reach truck is a global leader in its product category, and we are honored to represent this product line in North America.”

Jungheinrich’s ETV/ETM 216 reach truck was recognized for its superior performance, combining energy efficiency with excellent handling, driving performance and a range of ergonomic features. One of the few sit-down moving mast reach trucks offered in North America, a key benefit of the reach truck design is that the operator remains seated while driving the truck. This allows for enhanced comfort especially in applications where the operator remains on the truck for extended periods of time.

The IFOY Award’s Warehouse Trucks category focuses on pedestrian-controlled warehouse trucks, tugger trains, tow tractors, seated/standup material handling devices, very narrow aisle (VNA) trucks and reach trucks.
