This recognition marks the 13th GOOD DESIGN Award for Crown Equipment.
The award jury honored the stacker in the industrial category for high-quality design that improves the forklift-operator relationship.
“We’ve been using the stackers for nearly a year, and our operators are very positive about this truck,” said Thomas Berns, head of logistics at Mellerud Chemie GmbH in Brüggen, Germany. “The overall visibility is impressive, and the narrow chassis is perfect for block-stacking in our narrow aisles. It is particularly suitable for our continuously changing tasks without forcing us to make any compromises.”
