Toyota buys Hoist Liftruck Toyota Industries North America, Inc acquired the assets of Indiana-based Hoist Liftruck Mfg, LLC in February. The new company will be known as Hoist Material Handling, Inc. “We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished in building a terrific brand and quality products,” said Hoist founder Marty Flaska. “I am retiring and will no longer be part of the business, but the company is in good hands. It’s an honour to hand it off to the industry leader Toyota.” Hoist Material Handling will be led by vice president and general manager Dan Kossow; vice president of engineering Bob Miller; vice president of sales Stu Jacover; and vice president of operations Ryan Delaney. “This is the perfect next step in the expansion of our Toyota Heavy Duty (THD) line,” said Jeff Rufener, president of Toyota Material Handling USA. “Hoist has been a great manufacturer of heavy-duty equipment for years and brings a group of passionate, talented associates who will help us in our role as a full-line equipment supplier. We are excited about the future of Hoist Material Handling.” Keeping tabs on contractors Managing contractors can be an onerous task for marina operators in terms of management processes, planning and keeping all in line with Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) requirements. A new solution, developed in New Zealand by Instigate NZ, simplifies all. Instigate offers a site-specific online contractor process that can be fully customised to ensure that all contractors visiting a marina are registered and inducted. They simply complete all online and the process is automated. When a registration is completed, the data is sent to a database in the cloud that holds records for every person who has worked at each property. The data is then available via smartphone, tablet or computer The acquisition adds to Toyota’s already robust presence in the state of Indiana. Working from a 550,000ft² (51,000m²) factory, Hoist has nearly 25 years of experience manufacturing heavy-duty cushion tyre and pneumatic forklifts, reach stackers, container handlers and more, ranging in lift capacity from 7 to 57 tons. Toyota has had an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Hoist for the manufacture of large capacity forklifts under the THD brand since 2015. Flaska, although retiring from the Hoist Liftruck business, will still be extremely active in the industry, focusing his efforts on other businesses including Forklift Exchange, Hoistlift of Florida, Specialized Liftruck Services, Flaska JCB and his real estate interests. Working alongside family members, he will divide much of his time between Chicago and Florida. with internet access, where it can easily be reviewed or searched by any field as per a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. A personalised email response is automatically sent to each inducted contractor further to registration. Several New Zealand ports and marinas, such as Westhaven, Onehunga Port, Silo/Viaduct Marina and Orakei Marina have adopted the system. E: PRODUCTS & SERVICES Self-service upgrade for Waterways marinas British Waterways Marinas Ltd (BWML), the UK’s leading residential and leisure mooring provider, has significantly reduced costs at its fuel docks by installing the HydraPod Outdoor Payment Terminal (OPT) from HTEC. HydraPod, when installed and integrated to BWML’s Pumptronics fuel pumps, has transformed each dock into an unmanned station with 24/7 access and a secure payment system. Specifically designed for the purpose, the solution is robust, tamper-proof and weather-proof, and has an intuitive user interface designed to both simplify the fuel sales process and increase checkout speed. In addition to looking for a roundthe-clock system that would save on staffing costs, BWML was also seeking a fuel vending solution that would encompass HMRC (tax) requirements regarding fuel use declaration whilst enabling multi duty rate vending. The result has worked well says Rod Grant, who manages chandlery, brokerage and marketing for BWML. “The launch of the BWML fuel cards in December 2017 has been greatly embraced by in-house and external customers alike,” he confirms. “HTEC’s equipment is currently used at five of our diesel vending sites and we are reviewing extending the HTEC facility to further BWML marinas.” BWML has 18 inland marinas and some coastal berthing, and caters for a wide variety of vessel types at over 2,500 berths.
