New European HQ for Crown

Forklift truck manufacturer Crown is moving to a larger European headquarters site at Feldkirchen near Munich in Germany.

It expects to complete the move by the end of this year.

It is also expanding its production site at Roding in Bavaria with a new production hall and office building.  Construction is scheduled for completion in mid-2014. The existing premises will also continue operations.

It is also developing a new Parts and Service Centre at Pliening, also near Munich which will triple the available space. The site now handles spare parts supplies for the EMEA region.

Ken Dufford, Vice President Europe, said: ““With these three new investments we are creating the urgently-needed capacities to meet the growing needs of our customers for viable solutions designed to advance productivity and lower costs.”
