Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, announced plans to further expand in the Asian market with a new company-owned branch location in South Korea.

The South Korea facility is strategically located in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do, and is situated at the junction of three major expressways and home to the port of Tanjung Pelepas. Crown’s new operation features extensive rental and new equipment inventory, expanded storage capacity and enhanced inventory management for quick parts turnaround.

“This branch is another example of Crown’s commitment to the region and our growing roster of South Korean customers in the manufacturing, industrial, warehousing and logistics industries,” says Steven Hill, managing director for Asia Pacific. “It also demonstrates our ability to improve the customer experience through ongoing infrastructure development, which is bringing global material handling technology and software to local business in Asia while expanding the support network for those companies.”

Along with having access to a complete selection of Crown’s forklifts and Integrity Parts and Service System, customers can take advantage of Crown’s Demonstrated Performance Training programs that offer a comprehensive range of forklift training formats for operators, supervisors, trainers, technicians and pedestrians.
