Crown recently acquired one of the earliest electric counterbalance forklifts the company produced, originally manufactured in 1968.
Founded in 1933, Herbert Voigt GmbH & Co. KG is one of Northern Germany’s leading transport and logistics services providers. Via a network of precisely scheduled routes, some 50 vehicles leave the company’s premises each day, transporting general freight of all kinds throughout Europe according to strict delivery timetables. Voigt also manages storage facilities for various industrial, chemical and trade customers.
Crown has included the D4 Armrest as standard for its C-5 Series, FC Series and SC Series sit-down counterbalance forklifts. It is ergonomically designed to help improve operator experience and comfort, ultimately helping boost productivity throughout the entire operation. The armrest recently captured a GOOD DESIGN® Award, further strengthening Crown’s international recognition for excellence in industrial design.
