Crown Equipment Wins Crystal Award for Excellence | Industry News
The directors of the Ohio Edison Technology Centers recently awarded its Crystal Award for Excellence to Crown Equipment. The annual award recognizes Ohio companies that have created significant economic impact in their communities and the state. EWI, which is one of the original Edison Centers created by the State of Ohio in the mid-1980s, nominated Crown for the honor.
Crown worked with EWI to develop innovative welding and fabrication processes that helped the company realize reduced design costs, increased manufacturing efficiencies and accelerated time to market.
Ohio’s six Edison Technology Centers provide a variety of product and process innovation and commercialization services to both established and early-stage technology-based businesses. The centers work to stimulate commercial development and manufacturing throughout Ohio via the creation and deployment of new technology. Companies qualify for the Crystal Award recognition by having collaborated with at least one of the Edison Technology Centers to help improve productivity, support innovation, or develop and apply new technologies.
