Crown Equipment is establishing a company owned and managed sales and service location in the Philippines which offers businesses that use material handling equipment the opportunity of dealing directly with the supplier.
A new Crown Lift Trucks branch, strategically located in the heart of the bustling Clark Freeport Zone, provides a range of benefits including communication speed, easy access to a range of material handling equipment solutions and expert factory-trained staff.
The company’s infrastructure development in Southeast Asia is a product of its focus on providing local businesses with direct access to leading products, services and practices.
The Philippines branch offers Crown’s range of premium electric and internal combustion lift trucks along with 24-hour service support to a growing number of small and large businesses in the country.
The state-of-the-art facility offers a large rental fleet to manage short and long-term requirements and holds large stock reserves of spare parts to help maintain lift truck uptime for customers.
Crown Equipment managing director for Asia Pacific, Steven Hill, said that the new branch offers opportunities for local businesses throughout the Philippines to improve supply chain efficiencies whilst enabling cost reduction through working directly with the forklift company.
“The Clark Freeport Zone facility is the fourth major expansion in Asia for Crown in the last 12 months, following recently completed facilities in South Korea, Malaysia and Thailand.
“Crown has a reputation for delivering tangible solutions that deliver genuine cost savings, increased business efficiency, improved safety and operator comfort and we’re continuing to grow in Southeast Asia.
“We attribute this to our ability to provide complete material handling equipment solutions to help customers manage replenishment, dispatch and everything in between.
“Our point of difference as a ‘total material handling solutions provider’ is resonating in the region and customers appreciate our passionate staff who work beyond their sales and service roles to double as business partners capable of giving useful advice.
It also serves as a base for over 40 factory-trained mobile service technicians.
“We look forward to working closely with our Philippines customers and providing them with an exceptional customer experience and long-term operational value,” he said.
