Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, opened a new facility near Los Angeles to meet growing customer demand in the region. As one of eight North American regional training facilities, the new location will feature a large parts department and extensive equipment inventory, while providing customers with a variety of training opportunities.

“We’ve been a committed member of this region since our first location opened in 1980,” says Keith Heinke, general manager, western region. “After 36 years in our original facility, the time was right to grow and expand our service offering to better serve our customers in the greater Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Our customers operate in a variety of industries – retail, grocery and more. Regardless of what they sell, they all need the quality products and the level of expertise and service Crown provides to keep their businesses running smoothly.”

 The new facility will offer customers a complete selection of Crown forklifts, warehouse design services, the Integrity Parts and Service System and its InfoLink fleet management system. The location also provides Crown’s Demonstrated Performance(DP) Training programs for forklift operators, supervisors, trainers and pedestrians.
