Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, added a second facility to its manufacturing operation in Greencastle, Ind., to support growing demand for the company’s electric and internal combustion counterbalance forklifts.
The new facility includes a combination of manufacturing processes and finished goods and component storage to support the growth of the entire Greencastle operation. Crown’s first Greencastle facility opened in 1996 and expanded in 2012.
“We are excited to be strengthening our investment in the Greencastle area,” says Randy Niekamp, vice president of human resources. “The dedication and productivity of the local workforce is key to helping expand our production capacity. This new facility is an important element in our desire to exceed customer expectations and fuel global growth.”
