Gold award for Fleet Management Centre

08 April 2021

Toyota Material Handling UK's Fleet Management Centre has been awarded the Toyota Lean Academy Gold Award.

The TLA Awards are an annual Toyota Material Handing Europe initiative driven by the Toyota Lean Academy to drive standards in the way of quality assurance, on-time delivery, environmental factors and health and safety. 

The Fleet Management Centre is based in Old Dalby, Leicestershire and is responsible for all UK Short term rental (STR), Long term rental (LTR), and Demonstration (DEMO) trucks. The facility also supplies the outstanding "Approved Used" (AU) machines for the UK.

After achieving Silver status in 2019, Sean Reckless, FMC Workshop Manager was the project manager behind the successful bid to achieve Gold.

“The TLA Awards is a European-wide assessment and while as a collective we have been working hard over many years on driving efficiencies and standards throughout the FMC. To have achieved the Gold status in the year of a global Pandemic is testament to the hard work and dedication of my colleagues.

“The work doesn't stop here however. True to our key Toyota value ‘Kaizen', which means continuous improvement, we are constantly striving to increase our standards. Already underway are projects designed to reduce lead times, ultimately, with a view to providing our customers an even greater service and experience.”
