Aug 4, 2011 7:00 AM
Forklift manufacturer Crown Equipment Corporation has been ranked again by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) as one of the world’s best industrial designers. Presented by Co Design and Fast Company, Crown was honored with a 2011 Gold International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) for the Crown WT 3000 Series of pallet trucks.
Crown has won more IDEAs in the Commercial and Industrial Equipment category in the past 11 years than any other company. This is the sixth consecutive and 19th overall IDEA award for Crown.
The Crown WT 3000 Series of pallet trucks is designed to accommodate intense pallet truck conditions and high throughput demands. This series combines robust engineering, durability, performance, and operator comfort, and is loaded with features such as the Crown Access 1 2 3, AC technology, and e-GEN braking system to lower operating costs and improve energy efficiency. The FlexRide suspension system provides riding comfort during trailer loading and transport, and the optional weight-adjustable FlexRide platform reduces impact shock to the driver.
The IDSA IDEA program receives thousands of product submissions each year but only a few are honored with an IDEA award. With entrants from nations as far-reaching as Japan, Croatia, Brazil, and New Zealand and a continuing upward trend in international participation, the IDEA program highlights the best in design worldwide.
Since the 1960s, Crown has earned more than 50 design awards. For more information, visit www.crown.com.
