Despite the economic difficulties facing businesses today, Crown Worldwide Group is expanding in response to its continued growth. Crown’s Ruislip office has undergone a large-scale development and recently opened its doors to a brand new warehouse for its Records Management and Relocations divisions.
The new warehouse sits adjacent to the Ruislip office and was built as a direct result of high demand for further storage facilities. Measuring 23,000 square feet and reaching a height of 59 feet, the considerable building substantially increases Crown Worldwide’s storage capacity. The extension will be a secure facility with the ability to hold over 1.1 million Records Management cartons and 700 household goods storage containers.
Barry Koolen, Regional Managing Director - UK, Ireland & Scandinavia, Crown Worldwide Group, said at the opening of the new warehouse: "This expansion is a huge achievement for Crown Worldwide Group and demonstrates the strong growth that we have been experiencing over the last few years. People are relocating to escape the economic situation in the UK and make a fresh start so we’ve noticed an increasing requirement for long-term storage from our customers.
"Companies are also recognising the need for stringent, secure and responsible records management, which is why at Crown we’ve been seeing a growing demand for our records storage services. With the new warehouse’s flexibility and sizeable capacity, it’s usage can be adapted to the needs of our clients, so we are expecting to see it brimming with cartons and containers in no time."
The Ruislip expansion is also a beacon of good practice amongst Crown’s many environmentally friendly initiatives, with ‘green’ facilities including an electric car charger for the company’s transportation vehicles and solar panels that generate a portion of the energy required to power the warehouse.
