GREENE, New York—The Raymond Corporation received Toyota’s President’s Award, the highest honour, in recognition of exceptional achievements and contribution to Global Quality Improvement Activity for a paint improvement project at its headquarters and manufacturing plant in Greene, New York.

The activity was championed by Toyota Material Handling Group (TMHG) to ensure the four direct influencers of efficient manufacturing are optimized—man, material, machine and methods. After implementation, Raymond showed significant improvement in its paint process quality.

“Raymond team members successfully embraced the new tools, and their collaboration was an integral part of the process,” says Michael Field, president and CEO of The Raymond Corporation. “This is a significant accomplishment for our team. We are honored to receive this prestigious award.”

Raymond was one of five companies honored at the global manufacturing and quality ceremony held Oct. 27, 2015, at Toyota Industry Corporations Global Manufacturing Convention in Japan.

Raymond is a Toyota Industries Corporation (TICO) company.
