Crown Equipment expands sales, service and training operations in Los Angeles

Crown Equipment Corporation announced the opening of 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 also providing customers with a variety of training opportunities.

“We’ve been a committed member of this region since our first location opened in 1980,” said Keith Heinke, general manager, western region, Crown Equipment. “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 and the Integrity Parts and Service System™. Crown’s InfoLink® fleet management system, which enables fleet managers to wirelessly stay connected to their fleet and operators, will also be available. The location also provides Crown’s award-winning Demonstrated Performance® (DP) Trainingprograms for forklift operators, supervisors, trainers and pedestrians.
