The Raymond Corp., Greene, N.Y., unveiled the new RayBuilt Center of Excellence located in East Syracuse, N.Y.

The 40,000-square-foot RayBuilt Center of Excellence will remanufacture Raymond forklifts, including the truck body, as well as the truck’s components, including motors, drive units, handles and hoses, with plans to grow the product line to include units and steer gear motors, Reach-Fork truck carriage assemblies and hydraulic pump and motors. New lift chain assemblies will also be cut in the new RayBuilt Center of Excellence.

“The RayBuilt Center of Excellence products are exclusively supported by The Raymond Corp., utilizing the exact same engineering specifications and Toyota Production System (TPS) principles as all Raymond manufacturing facilities follow,” says Michael Field, chief executive officer. “The creation of the new RayBuilt Center of Excellence will further support our continued growth, as well as support all our customers’ evolving needs with end-to-end solutions — from forklifts to parts to leasing.” 

RayBuilt has been a division of Raymond since 1991, and has been remanufacturing more than 18,000 components every year. To date, the RayBuilt facility has recycled more than 8 million pounds of core material.

Raymond also announced the expansion of its Raymond parts division with more than 40,000 square feet being added to its East Syracuse distribution center.
