Crown is the right choice for fuel-cell technology

Crown also initiated the industry’s first fuel-cell qualification programme and has now qualified more than 20 lift truck models to operate with fuel-cells in the American market. Many of these lift trucks are already in use at customer locations throughout Canada and the United States. Now a new fleet of 35 Crown FC 4500 Series counterbalance lift trucks, fitted with fuel cells has been delivered to Coca-Cola Bottling Co.
