One of the world’s largest material handling companies has extended its legacy of design excellence by winning its 14th GOOD DESIGN™ Award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

Ohio’s Crown Equipment Corporation is recognized for its dedication to design that challenges traditional thinking for the Crown GPC order picker with QuickPick® Remote technology. Crown’s approach to design focuses on ideas for improving lift truck operator productivity and safety, based on a thorough understanding of the operator-forklift relationship.

“We’re honored to be recognized with a GOOD DESIGN award for 2014,” says Jim Kraimer, IDSA, Crown’s director of design. “We constantly strive to develop customer-centric equipment and material handling technologies that improve safety and comfort for operators, as well as heighten productivity and efficiency within the entire operation.”

Crown’s forklifts and material handling technologies have earned more than 80 awards from design associations and institutions since 1965. Its employees number more than 10,000 worldwide.
