Crown Equipment, one of the world’s largest material handling companies, announced its relocation to larger and more strategically placed premises in Malaysia’s busiest and most advantageously located seaport area. The relocation positions Crown to enhance and expand its services to its growing customer base in terms of capacity and service response times. The new facility comprises new internal combustion and electric forklift sales, a large fleet of trucks for short and long-term rentals, and fully-serviced refurbished vehicles. Crown’s InfoLink® fleet management system, which enables fleet managers to wirelessly stay connected to their fleet and operators, will also be available.
Located in the region’s commercial Indonesia–Malaysia–Singapore Growth Triangle, Johor is home to the Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia’s largest container port, as well as Port Johor, which supports the majority of the country’s resource refineries. The area is also home to Senai International Airport, serving both domestic and freight airlines.
Crown has had a strong presence in Johor since 1992, servicing the needs of local and global companies trading in the region. However, as both government and commercial investment increased in the area, Crown saw the opportunity to take the lead in supporting the material handling requirements of new and existing customers, according to David Sultana, Southeast Asia marketing manager at Crown Equipment.
