Crown Equipment boosts Guan Chong’s capacity by 50 per cent

One of the world’s largest cocoa processors is using Crown material handling equipment to help it keep up with the world’s growing appetite for chocolate. Guan Chong Bhd, which produces cocoa-derived food ingredients including cocoa mass, cocoa butter, cocoa cake and cocoa powder, runs a busy material handling operation exporting its products to Europe, the Middle East, China, Japan and other Asian countries from its facility in Pasir Gudang, Johor, Malaysia, using a full material handling solution from Crown.

The company has been using Crown RMD and RD Series reach trucks, PE Series rider pallet trucks and CG Series LPG counterbalance forklifts for over 10 years and plans to continue expanding its operations with the brand because of the equipment’s reliability, efficiency and safety.

The management of Guan Chong’s 10,000 pallet spaces – which are in use 12 hours per day with 200 daily dispatches seven days a week – is carried out by a large number of contracted staff.
