Crown has now gained more than 100 international industrial design awards for its forklifts since 1962. The latest recognitions are the GOOD DESIGNTM Awards for the SC 6000 Series forklift and the PTH Work Assist® System, as well as the iF International Forum Design Award for the WAV 60 Work Assist Vehicle.
Crown has launched the WP 3010 electric pallet truck, extending the forklift manufacturer’s well-established WP 3000 Series of pallet trucks. Weighing from 279kg (without battery), the new truck boasts a load capacity of up to 1.6 tonnes, is exceptionally light, yet powerful and robust. Fitted with durable steel covers, the pallet truck is tough enough to withstand extremely arduous working environments while its compact dimensions mean the WP 3010 is easy to manoeuvre in extremely confined spaces, making it especially suitable for use in narrow supermarket aisles or back-of-lorry applications.
Crown recently released the latest generation of the company’s popular Wave® Work Assist Vehicle. The order picker has now been nominated for the International Forklift Truck of the Year (IFOY) Award 2017 in the “Special Vehicle” category. This is the fourth year in which Crown has appeared as a finalist in this prestigious international competition.
