Toyota Material Handling Europe honours Camso as Supplier of the Year 2015.

Magog, Quebec, February 25, 2016 – Camso, formerly Camoplast Solideal, has been honoured as Supplier of the Year 2015 by Toyota Material Handling Europe in the “Counterbalanced Trucks” category after collaborating on a new range of Toyota forklifts.

Camso worked closely with Toyota Material Handling Europe to introduce its Solideal Magnum Resilient forklift tire on Toyota’s new counterbalanced trucks.

“This achievement is the result of tremendous teamwork and our commitment to be the best partner to our clients,” says Gilles Villela, OE Sales Executive Director – Material Handling at Camso.

The Solideal Magnum is the industry standard in reliability. Its wide profile and flat footprint are designed to maximize tire life. With large tread blocks and deep lugs the Solideal Magnum provides the best traction and delivers maximum stability and ride comfort.

The development project began in France more than two years ago. During this time, Camso and Toyota Material Handling Europe worked closely together to find creative solutions to ensure the right tire was placed on the right product for its intended applications.
