The History of Crown Forklifts
A family business launched by brothers Carl and Allen Dicke, Crown started out as a manufacturer of temperature-adjustment controls for coal furnaces. The company would later branch out to produce a line of television antenna rotators in the late 1940s.
Adding to the company’s versatility, Crown would expand into the electrical-component business before recognizing the need and market for quality lift trucks. The popularity of these lines of forklifts would elevate the company onto the global scale, most notably taking root in Australia, Ireland and Germany.
As relevant and important as ever, Crown is known today as one of the top electric-forklift manufacturers—and for good reason; their “human-based design” and dedication to a more eco-friendly form of operations has made the company one of the go-to manufacturers for material-handling businesses around the world.

Crown Order-Picker Trucks
Being able to safely and accurately see has always been a challenge in order-picking. With one of the industry’s largest viewing windows, Crown order-picker trucks provide an unparalleled amount of visibility that promotes a safe productive work environment for the operator and other employees. Some popular models we often have in stock include:
More than just a natural and unobstructed view, Crown order-picker trucks emphasize contact between the operator and the unit. With both feet flat on the platform, one hand on the control handle and the other on the steering, four solid points of contact exist to create a stable and safe working position.
Crown order-pickers also promote safety and efficiency through quality structure. The mast utilizes wide outer C-channels and I-beams on the inside, along with Crown’s vertical mast braces and angular cross members.
Crown Reach Forklift Trucks
Narrow aisles help warehouses store more materials. Stocking and recovering materials in such a configuration, however, requires a forklift designed to reach and retrieve materials from tall heights, as well as navigate tight, narrow areas safely. We usually have the following Crown forklifts in stock:
Crown’s focus on safe, ergonomic design makes for a truck that not only provides the operator with one of the clearest, most natural views of the surroundings but also is capable of reaching materials in high areas. With shock-free platforms, the typical jolts that cause discomfort and accidents are virtually eliminated.
