• About Hyster

  • Company Profile

    Bold. This one word sums up Hyster®. When a materials handling application demands dependability...when nothing but the grittiest makes the grade...the answer is Hyster - among the toughest lift trucks on earth.


    Hyster Company started as a manufacturer of lifting machines used in the rigorous logging industry of the United States’ Pacific Northwest. The name originated from the call of the loggers who would shout “Hoist’er!” when a log was ready to be raised.

    Global Reach

    Behind the Hyster® brand is the strength of a large world-wide organisation that takes a global approach to product design, manufacturing and supply-chain management. At the same time, Hyster can match products and services to specific customers and flex production capacity to respond to regional market demands.

    Product Design

    Thorough testing and life-cycle simulation verify the dependability of the design, while close cooperation between manufacturing and the marketing and service functions ensures new products meet uncompromising quality standards at every stage.


    Hyster® benefits from the expertise and resources of a global manufacturing organization. Operations in 11 manufacturing locations across the globe produce quality components and assemble complete trucks for the different world markets.


    Hyster® forklift truck products are distributed and supported through an extensive network of exclusive dealers.


    Through NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG), Hyster has global certification for ISO9001:2008 and ISO14001:2001/2004.


    Dedication to quality runs through every aspect of designing, manufacturing, and delivering Hyster® products but is equally important in the management of supply chain relationships and the provision of training and expert support to distributors.
