Bigger and Better. Another year of Growth

After yet another year of growth across all of Crown’s UK offices plus the positive impact both Crown Facilities and Crown Finishes are having on group business, we have once again added to personnel, warehouse space and in house accreditations.

Our London office now has an additional 1500 sq ft of warehousing space, Cheshire an additional 2000 sq ft and we are in discussions to double the storage capacity of our Scottish HQ in Hamilton.

Crown Facilities and Crown Finishes are now fully integrated into all of our offices and joint ventures between all three Crown Group members are now increasing in number, particularly with some of our National Clients.

Recruitment is ongoing with Gareth Hatton joining our Cheshire Consultant Surveying Team and both London and Facilities looking to add to their Contract Management teams.

We pride ourselves on offering unparalleled customer service on a national scale. These latest additions will provide the platform to move this to an even higher level, as more and more national organisations look to the Crown Brand as a key supply chain partner.

Crown Flooring Shorlisted for FeRFA Award

Crown Flooring are proud to have been short-listed in the FeRFA Awards for Small Commercial Project of the Year for the Rainbow House project. 

Partnering with the manufacturer Sika, Crown Flooring worked closely with the Rainbow House project to deliver a high quality flooring project that needed to meet very specific needs. 

Rainbow House is a national charity working with children with acquired brain injury, multiple disabilities and complex health needs. They are based at a 12 acre site in Mawdesley, Lancashire but offer our services to children from across the UK. The flooring in this new facility had to meet the challenge of providing a comfortable surface for floor therapy exercises, yet offer some slip resistance with an attractive seamless floor.

The Resin Flooring Association, FeRFA, represents the major product manufacturers, specialist contractors and surface preparation companies, raw material suppliers and specialist service providers within the UK Resin Flooring Industry.

Congratulations to Kelly and Danny

Our very own Kelly Tierney from the Cheshire office is now officially Mrs Bacon.

Kelly and Danny married on Saturday 10th October and are now enjoying the sunshine of Mexico with young Kai. It was a wonderful day and quite a drunken night with plenty of Crown colleagues in attendance. 

We  all wish them every happiness.

A marvellous achievement for all involved, onward and upward.’
