WICHITA — Ohio-based Crown Equipment Corp., which sells, leases and services forklifts, is planning to open a Wichita office and warehouse facility this summer.

No one with the company is talking yet, but it has provided some information to the city.

The company will open in temporary space in June and then move to a 22,500-square-foot building at 2113 Southwest Blvd.

The permanent space will open in August. The company expects to employ about 20 people.

According to the company's website, Crown "designs, manufactures, distributes, services and supports material handling products," which it has been doing since 1956. The company "designs and manufactures 85 percent of its lift truck components, including key parts like motors, drive units, and electronic modules."
