Toyota Industries Corporation Australia’s (TICA’s) New South Wales and Western Australian dealers are joint winners of the company’s coveted Toyota Industrial Equipment Dealer of the Year award.

Toyota Material Handling (NSW) and Western Australia’s Liftrite Toyota were joint winners of the award for outstanding performance in all areas of their businesses in 2004.

Toyota’s NSW dealership changed its name from Toyota Industrial Equipment (NSW) to Toyota Material Handling (NSW) on April 1.

Toyota Material Handling (NSW)’s General Manager David Fletcher and Liftrite’s Sales Director Jack Przytula received their awards from TICA’s president Mr Hank Ogata.

It is the first time Toyota Industrial Equipment’s Dealer of the Year award has produced joint winners.

TICA’s Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer Steve Harper said the Toyota Industrial Equipment Dealer of the Year award reflected the success of the NSW and WA dealerships in calendar year 2004.

“The retail operations are our eyes and ears on the industry” he said.

“These awards are a tribute to the work of the management and staff within the two dealerships.”

Accepting the award for the NSW dealership, Mr David Fletcher said he was delighted that the dedication of all at the dealership had been recognised.

“It’s been a case of focusing on getting everything just right and having the managers and staff to make it happen,” he said.

Jack Przytula said the Dealer of the Year award to Liftrite was the culmination of years of hard work coupled with a renewed focus and a serious push to expand the company’s forklift rental business.

“Liftrite had grown its rental business by 25 per cent a year and the overall business grew by 30 per cent last year,” he said.
