Tour the Facility

Join us on September 26th for a tour of the Crown Equipment Facility, details to be announced.

Crown Equipment

 A privately held, family-owned U.S. company, Crown Equipment Corporation is one of the largest manufacturers of powered industrial forklift trucks in the world. Crown has appeared at least ten times on Forbes’ list of the largest private companies in the United States.


The company traces its evolution to the 1920s, when it manufactured and sold temperature controls as the Pioneer Heat Regulator Company. In 1945, the company changed focus and became Crown Controls Corp. In 1949, as a market for television emerged, Crown began producing television antenna rotators. Crown entered the material handling industry around 1956. Crown developed several specialty lift trucks, including stockpickers and order pickers for the U.S. government, and a hamper-dumper truck for the U.S. Postal Service.
