Forklift manufacturer highlights sustainability accomplishments

Forklift manufacturer Crown Equipment Corporation has released the Crown ecologic Report highlighting the company’s sustainability initiatives and accomplishments.

The report highlights Crown’s tradition, exploration and implementation of conservation-minded practices throughout the design, engineering and manufacturing of the company’s forklifts.

Crown claims its commitment to sustainability is evident throughout numerous aspects of its operations. Throughout the past 10 years, Crown has rehabilitated more than one million square feet of brownfield facility space into new buildings for manufacturing and business operations. And, Crown’s New Bremen, Ohio, manufacturing facilities operate computer-controlled heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems to reduce facility-wide energy use.

“Sustainability and environmental stewardship are engrained into the Crown culture,” said Crown Equipment president, Jim Dicke III.

“Shaped by decades of thoughtful leadership, this approach has enabled Crown to improve the environment while benefiting our customers. On average, 85 percent of the components on Crown forklifts are engineered and manufactured by Crown. As a result, we have a unique level of control over what goes into our product during the manufacturing process and throughout supply chain. This enables us to take meaningful and significant steps to keep sustainability top of mind while reducing waste streams.”
