Crown opt for Flexi for Hull factory

Crown Paints has invested in seven Flexi trucks from Narrow Aisle to use at its factory in Hull.

Narrow Aisle also provided Crown with an integrated battery power management system which not only reduces energy consumption, but also maximises truck uptime by eliminating on-truck battery charging.

Crown Paints has been located in Hull for more than 200 years, and manufactures over half of its products at the plant.

The Flexi trucks have been provided on a contract and service level agreement that includes planned maintenance, safety inspections and repairs in one fixed monthly charge.

John Maguire, Narrow Aisle’s commercial director, said: “As a leader in the UK decorative coatings market, Crown seeks to continuously improve its manufacturing and operational efficiencies, and the decision to invest in Flexi articulated truck technology is part of that commitment.”
