Crown First Lift Truck Manufacturer to Offer Online Purchasing
NEW BREMEN, Ohio, April 25, 2008 - Crown Equipment Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of lift trucks, has launched an online purchasing feature. Customers interested in buying a hand pallet truck (hand pallet jack), Crown's PTH 50 Series, may now complete the transaction online at crown.com. Crown is the first major lift truck company to sell hand pallet trucks via the web.
"More and more customers are seeking the convenience, speed and ease of online shopping for business transactions," said Director of Marketing and Product Management Matt Logan. "We understand there are ways our customers utilize the web in their personal lives that also make sense in making business purchases. This new feature offers companies looking for a high-quality hand pallet truck a quick solution."
Crown's hand pallet truck is available in a variety of configurations. The PTH 50 Series section of crown.com includes a Buyers' Reference Guide and additional information on features, benefits, options and accessories for Crown's hand pallet truck to assist customers.
"Our goal was to make sure the transaction could be completed with ease, not only for the most informed purchaser, but also for those a little less familiar with material handling equipment. The Buyers' Reference Guide and specification section provides the detail and descriptions necessary for a smooth selection and purchase," said Logan.
While the transaction takes place online, delivery is coordinated through Crown's extensive dealer and branch network to enhance customer support.
