Crown International 2010 Year in Review

2010 Review of the Year – A story of Outstanding Success

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

The year just gone has proven to be an eventful one in the history of Crown International. It began with us working on delivering the VMC Pole to the Welsh Government M4 VSL Scheme and one the heaviest snowfalls for some years and it ended with even worse conditions for most of December and having extended our contacts into new markets and with new partners.

Our design led approach to problem solving created the VMC Pole and the Slip Road Pole which were successfully delivered during the summer and which gathered 3 Industry Awards for Innovation. We showcased the prototype VMC Pole at Intertraffic in Amsterdam and created global interest in this product and our overall design and manufacture capabilities which we expect to generate significant growth opportunities over 2011 and beyond.

We strengthened ties with existing customers and were able to broaden our offering to them by demonstrating our new products and concepts for innovative designs for road and railside infrastructure.

Potential new customers in our core business sought us out to discuss ways Crown could design and supply motorway poles to their markets.

The change of Government created some uncertainties amongst Speed Camera Partnerships and we have yet to see the full result of the austerity measures but towards the end of 2010 we began to hear some positive news from the market place.

Following up on our plans to branch out into new sectors where we can apply our design and manufacturing competencies has led to establishing new relationships in exciting areas in the renewable sector.

Crown was invited to present to the CIHT in November and we became a member of Balfour Beatty Zero Harm.  Both of these are recognition of an increased presence and awareness of Crown in the roadside infrastructure supply chain.

All in all it has been an outstanding 2010. With the current interest and activities this will lead to an exciting 2011.
