Crown Equipment Opens Production Facility in Germany | Industry News

Crown Equipment has opened a new production facility in Roding (Bavaria), Germany. The opening ceremony in July was attended by employees and guests, including local politicians and business partners. With a new production hall and office premises covering a total area of nearly 12,000 square meters (approximately 129,000 square feet), Roding is one of the key production facilities in Crown’s global manufacturing network.http://news.crown.com/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif Among the products manufactured in Roding are the ESR 5200 Series reach trucks and GPC 3000 Series order pickers.

 

While the company will continue to operate the existing plant located nearby, the new facility will enable Crown to expand its European production capacity. Last year, Crown opened its new European headquarters in Feldkirchen and a new parts center in Pliening. The parts center handles the distribution of spare parts across the entire EMEA region. The new Roding plant represents Crown’s third major investment in Germany to support the company’s ongoing growth in Europe.

 

The Roding plant is also a training venue. Devised in collaboration with local vocational colleges, the company’s work-study training programs help trainees build a foundation of practical and theoretical skills.
