Partnering - Crown's Way
15/06/10 09:36 Filed in: Company
Crown Aluminium’s position in the commercial fenestration market is balanced perfectly between the major systems companies in the UK and the major building envelope contractor/installers. The company is founded on sound engineering principles and is recommended by some of the major systems companies.
Schüco, Kawneer, Reynaers, Seniors, Technal and many other systems companies products are available through Crown’s fabrication service. In addition to systems fabrication, engineering solutions for complex or large assemblies can also be accommodated using some of the latest CNC machines from Elumatec.
Technical excellence is only half the story, a close working relationship between Crown and their customers ensures that the ‘partnering’ solution works effectively and efficiently, and above all, ensures customers long term relationship with the company.
Roger Phillips, Crown’s founder and head of the engineering facility, has almost 40 years experience in the industry and explains the ethos behind Crown’s success. “If a jobs worth doing, it’s worth doing right first time! That includes a clear brief of what is required, where it’s wanted and when. We work closely with our customers and can negotiate and agree what is required. Where it’s required is usually not a problem for us. The when is not a problem either - as long as we are in early and regular communication with the customer.”
Roger is well known for being straight talking and will do as much as he, and his company, can in order to meet customers realistic requirements. This flexibility to meet customers needs is reflected in Crown gaining a licence for ‘Secured by Design’ fabrication. Working in conjunction with the major systems companies, customers can now gain SBD licensed fabricated product in their specified system.
“Partnering can be put down to simply doing the job right first time, every time! I have been proud to work with some of the largest external envelope companies in the UK, many of whom Crown still work with today, it’s about reaching an understanding and having satisfaction in what you can achieve. It’s something that everyone at Crown takes home with them at the end of the day.”
