Crown’s product portfolio includes a versatile range of tough, long-lasting lift trucks suitable for almost any application and any industry. They all share one thing in common – a commitment to top quality and productivity, combined with exceptional ergonomics and ease of operation, supported by leading-edge technology.
Crown’s robust, efficient lift trucks reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in the warehouse and have earned the company a reputation for advanced product design, smart engineering, proven reliability and high productivity.
But in addition to a comprehensive range of lift trucks, Crown also develops market-leading automation and fleet management technologies. This combination generates above-average added value for customers, who benefit from innovative, future-proof products and solutions designed to enhance real-world logistics performance while simultaneously reducing operating costs. Crown has always prioritised long-term customer relationships over short-term profits.
