Our Culture

Our brand roots go back as far as 1875, with the forklift factory in Craigavon opening in 1981. The plant has been a true success story in Northern Ireland, now employing hundreds of people, many of whom have been working at the factory for decades. In fact, 33 of the current staff have been working there since the first year that the plant opened. Over the years, the factory has won multiple awards for its commitment to quality and staff, including achieving the Investors in People Gold Award and being crowned “Best Place to Work” from Workplace & Employment Awards. We have also led the way for sustainability in manufacturing, investing several million pounds in strategies and technologies to protect the environment, saving energy and water, and reducing carbon emissions.
Hyster-Yale have built our culture on the idea that we’re all here to serve a common purpose, and each one of us has the ability to make a contribution. That’s why so many of our best ideas start out at the grassroots level and gain momentum through cross-functional teams. Our basic philosophy is to recruit, attract, and retain skilled, talented, and trustworthy people promoting from within whenever possible. We enable each other so that, together, we perform in the most efficient and effective manner. We encourage employees to become involved in teams that solve problems and improve our business. By fostering learning where people can build on their background and work experience, we continuously refine our process and products – and we all continue to grow.
