• Pushing Boundaries through Innovation

    InnovationHyster has 3 development centres across 3 continents delivering new material handling products to our customers.To ensure that Hyster pushes boundaries in the material handling market we have recognised the need to have a dedicated team focussed on delivering innovative new designs and solutions to our customers. The Engineering Concept Centre (ECC) is based at the European HQ in Frimley, UK focussing in 3 areas:

    1. Supporting development centres with projects
    2. Investigating and delivering new solutions to the market
    3. Looking 3, 5 or 10 years ahead in terms of material handling


    Within the ECC we have 15 engineers, mechanical, electrical and validation who use a variety of techniques to ensure they choose the right innovations to take to proof of concept to handover to the development centres. Techniques applied to reach the right decisions include:

    • Model based Simulation
    • CAD
    • 3D Printing
    • Rapid prototyping
    • University Collaborations
    • Customer visits
