Design and Testing Continuous development and testing… From product concept to introduction, every new Yale® materials handling model follows a carefully structured nine-stage development process. Confirmation that the product will deliver all the intended benefits to its future users must be confirmed at each stage before the project can be progressed to the next stage in the process. Research, design and test centers on three continents employ over 400 of the most talented and experienced design and test engineers using state-of-the-art design tools and processes. New technologies are incorporated into every material handling series and then proven through functional and durability testing, reliability development, and controlled field tests. The result is a level of dependability and reliability you can count on. Operator care Yale® trucks are designed and engineered with the operator in mind. Productivity and safety are both enhanced when ergonomic designs are employed to help the operator avoid fatigue as well as frequent repetitive motions. Yale in conjunction with its dealer network also focuses on the operator with training programmes designed to increase safety, motivation and productivity. Programmes are designed to help protect personnel, loads and equipment and are adaptable for companies with large or small fleets and are available in multiple languages.
