Crowcon, the gas detection specialist, has announced a move to a larger and better premises in order to meet growing customer demand, reaffirming Crowcon as the industry’s safety partner. This new facility, which became fully operational on 18 August was officially inaugurated on 5 September and improves customer access to Crowcon’s knowledge and expertise in gas detection.
The move from Abingdon to brand new premises in Milton Park was largely driven by the need for enhanced customer training facilities. Crowcon has a long history of providing expert face to face training for its customers. With 40% more capacity at the new site, it can now serve a greater number of training delegates in a flexible, modern and comfortable environment. The training centre is complemented by a comprehensive demonstration area clearly displaying Crowcon’s full range of gas detection and safety products. A new larger production area allows for increased manufacturing output to meet growing demand for Crowcon products. This is coupled with a modernised full service and calibration laboratory to improve their service to existing customers.
Mike Ophield, Managing Director, Crowcon said, ‘whichever way we look at it, the move to bigger and more modern premises could not have come at a better time for us. Our customer focus drive, increased manufacturing capability with improvements in all aspects of supplying and supporting our safety products ha been delivered in one move.
‘After over two years of planning, I am really delighted to see this facility come to life. As we are an international company, we are fortunate that Milton Park is both a hub for science and innovation and an excellent location with great transport links. Other key considerations for us were retention of our highly skilled workforce and continued commitment to local employment. As Milton Park is only 5 miles from our old location, we are pleased to have achieved this.’
