Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, opened a Crown Lift Trucks sales and service location in East Providence, R.I., which was previously occupied by Crellin Handling Equipment Inc. for more than 40 years. An additional facility in Webster, Mass., will serve as a satellite location supporting the southern New England market.
