California Community News provides a range of printing, inserting, packaging and distribution services for several newspaper and media companies including the Los Angeles Times Media Group. At its busy 325,000-square-foot production facility in Irwindale, Calif., millions of inserts and papers are printed and packaged each year. The success of the entire operation is dependent on an efficient material-handling system that includes transporting products, warehouse storage, and keeping processes running smoothly on the production floor.
With a busy schedule of nearly constant production and activity, California Community News needs a powerful and reliable forklift to meet production demands as well as one that is agile enough to move through a busy facility quickly and safely while being used for a multitude of tasks. On the production floor alone, operators need forklifts that are used 24 hours a day for five to six days per week. That's why they turned to Crown and found a solution in Crown's SC Series lift trucks.
