The story of Crown Equipment Corporation began with a modest firm in the small city of New Bremen, located in Ohio, USA.
Today, the company is one of the leaders in the field of loading and unloading operations, producing a wide range of high-quality warehouse equipment.
Crown was founded in 1945 by two brothers, Carl and Allen Dick. At the moment, the president of the company is James Dick III - the great-grandson of the founders.
Initially, the company specialized in the manufacture of temperature regulators for coal stoves. Despite the fact that the product gradually fell out of use, she managed to establish a full-fledged profitable operation of the enterprise, located in the old warehouse.
In the early 1950s, the company changes the vector of its development.
In response to the booming television industry, Crown begins to produce turning mechanisms for television antennas and becomes a well-known manufacturer of these devices up to the 21st century with the decline in popularity of analog antennas and the transition to digital broadcasting.
In 1957, the company created a department specializing in the production and maintenance of warehouse equipment. Success came pretty quickly: soon Crown lifting devices gained popularity and began to be used in warehouses for various purposes.
The first exit "in the light" occurred in 1966. It was then that the company declared itself to the whole world, opening the first enterprises outside of America - in Australia. To this day, it remains the leader in sales and service levels in the Asia-Pacific region.
In Europe, Crown models began to be produced for the first time in 1968, when the group acquired a plant in Ireland from Steinbock.
The main focus was on the production of hand pallet trucks. In the same year, the first equipment service center was opened in London for enterprises located near the airport. In the 70s, Crown supplies storage equipment to Europe, selling through independent dealers.
Today, Crown manufactures a variety of warehouse equipment: loaders, stackers, trucks, reach trucks, order pickers.
Sales and equipment maintenance services are handled by a distribution network consisting of Crown-owned companies and independent distributors operating in major markets around the world.
Dealers and sales managers are trained in production in all disciplines, and then consolidate knowledge by doing practical work in corporate offices located in New Bremen, USA and Munich, Germany.
Opened in the 1980s, the office in Munich provides marketing research, procurement, design and new engineering for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India.
