Crown Marks Manufacturing Milestone

New Bremen, OH — Crown Equipment Corporation built its 500th forklift to be operated with fuel cells. This is in addition to the Crown forklifts that have been retrofitted to accommodate fuel cells. A Crown SR 5000 Series moving-mast reach truck was the 500th truck to be built with a fuel cell. “An increasing number of our customers are considering fuel cell-powered forklifts as a viable option,” says Ernst Baumgartner, Crown’s fuel cell project manager. “They are coming to us with questions and asking for help determining if and how the technology can be integrated into their fleets and facilities.”
