"Raymond focuses on developing and incorporating new technologies that will help its users improve material handling operations in terms of truck reliability, performance and cost of ownership," says Jim Malvaso, president of The Raymond Corporation. "We are working with developers of emerging technologies to ensure that our trucks will be compatible with or incorporate these innovations as they become practical and commercially available."
Over the last two years, Raymond has worked with several fuel cell technology companies to explore the viability of hydrogen fuel cell power for lift trucks. Fuel cells would replace batteries and generate significant savings by eliminating battery change-out, enabling longer run times and eliminating battery-charging infrastructure. Fuel cell companies have had functional demonstrations in North America that provided hands-on testing and assessment.
For over 82 years, The Raymond Corporation has produced superior lift trucks that offer reliability, low cost of operation, and optimum operator comfort and productivity. Current investments in emerging technologies will ensure that Raymond continues to be a leader in these areas.
