Yanmar mini excavators – A History of Efficient Machines

Filed under Press

The Yanmar Corporation was founded in 1912 and is based in Osaka, Japan. The Yanmar America Corporation is based in Adairsville, Georgia. Yanmar was the first company to market a true zero-tail swing excavator. This means that there is no need for a counterbalance “tail” on the back of a compact excavator. This technology made it possible to use mini excavators in very confined spaces. Yanmar mini excavators are built on their tradition of fuel-efficient engines. There are three main compact excavators manufactured by Yanmar: the ViO series, the SV series, and the B-Sigma.

Yanmar Mini Excavators

Crown Forklifts – About Crown Equipment Corporation

Filed under Press

There is a fairly limited range of material handling products manufacturers that are currently making strides forward in a saturated market. Crown forklifts are one of those brands that are prized for ingenuity and a dedication to a high level of customer service and care. They were founded in 1956, with a different business approach that is based on vertical integration, rather than sourcing from outsiders. That means that every aspect of the Crown brand is designed to stand alone as its own product, from the outside in. The company manages to design and manufacture over 85% of the components that go into its forklifts.

Crown Electric Forklifts

This means that when you order Crown forklifts, you will find the highest quality that is possible. Crown oversees the manufacture of the motors, drive units, electronics modules, and most of the other key parts that go into each forklift, without sourcing these from outside mass manufacturers like other rival companies do.

Crown Forklifts

The thinking behind this is that if you are sourcing from an outsider, you will not be able to have the same assurance of quality that you would if you are manufacturing each part yourself. Micromanaging leads to perfection in this case, with some of the most beautifully crafted forklifts on the market today.
