Crown a Leader In Employee Retention

Crown Equipment Corporation, one of the world’s leading forklift manufacturers, recently honored 131 employees for their 25 years of service.  Honorees from around Ohio, California, Massachusetts and Texas traveled to New Bremen to attend the event.

Crown President Jim Dicke III and Crown Vice President-Human Resources Randy Niekamp presented the awards to the employees during an awards ceremony. During the opening ceremony, Jim Dicke III thanked the honorees for their continued efforts in establishing Crown as a leader in the lift truck industry.

“Crown believes it is the combination of our offerings, service and our employees that allow us to deliver the highest value in the industry,” Niekamp said. “Our dedicated and experienced workforce gives Crown an advantage over other forklift manufacturers.”

While employee turnover remains a critical and costly issue for most corporate leaders, Crown continues its long history of retaining employees. Today, Crown’s 25-year group includes more than 950 members. In addition, Crown’s workforce is uncommon in today’s business community since many Crown employees are second and third generation workers.

A notable achievement in 1985 – when the 25-year inductees began their employment – includes the Crown’s Walkie Truck control handle winning a design award from the Magazine of International Design.
