In a highly competitive market, this is essential to the company’s business development. “In the international Toyota Family, each employee’s personal advancement is supported, respected and constantly encouraged. Our employees can express their ideas and evolve to their full potential. I strongly believe that creating the right environment and possibilities for our people is the best way to a growing business and a healthy working environment,” says Matthias Fischer, President of Toyota Material Handling Europe.
TMHE’s culture is built on the Toyota Way, a set of five guiding principles: Challenge, Kaizen (Continuous improvement), Genchi Genbutsu (Going to the source), Respect and Teamwork. These are the pillars on which the company has built its reputation along the years and which all employees, existing and future are invited to integrate and sustain.
