Crown Equipment Corporation this year marks 75 years since its establishment by brothers Carl and Allen Dicke in New Bremen, Ohio, in 1945.

The fourth generation of the Dicke family continues to lead Crown from its global headquarters in New Bremen, as well as operate regional headquarters in Australia, China, Germany and Singapore.

"I'm honoured to be a part of this company and the reputation we have earned for working closely with our customers to enhance efficiency, productivity and safety," says Jim Dicke III, president, Crown Equipment. "We could not have reached this point without the support of the communities where we reside and our employees, who are an incredible group of people dedicated to our customers' success."

"We are eager to continue to develop the innovative technology and equipment that will further evolve the materials handling industry and our customers' supply chains around the world. It's exciting to think about what the company will accomplish in the next 75 years."

Crown has a long history of exploring and developing advanced technology that has helped determine and define the future of materials handling. Most recently, the company expanded its internal combustion (IC) line of counterbalance forklifts, enhanced the operator experience with the introduction of the InfoLink 7 in. Touch Display Module and announced a line of lithium-ion powered forklifts. In late 2019, Crown began the global rollout of the ESR 1000 reach truck, its first lift truck utilising the new Gena operating system. The ESR 1000 is currently available throughout Europe, the Middle East and Australia, with other regions to follow.

As the company enters the new decade and celebrates its diamond anniversary, it is working closely with customers to anticipate and incorporate a number of trends creating change in the warehouse and broader supply chain.

Crown plans to mark its 75th anniversary with a number of events throughout the year at company locations worldwide.
