Crown Mantra

Integration Engineering

Crown employs proven engineering methodology to ensure we understand your equipment, its usage and your operational needs. We then design the complete installation around your needs keeping in mind the vehicle’s capabilities. Simply put, we bridge the gap between the aftermarket equipment manufacturers and Ford – we call it INTEGRATION ENGINEERING.

You don’t have to purchase the equipment from us, although we’d be happy to sell it to you if you want. You don’t have to have a fleet of hundreds of vehicles to use our services. You don’t even have to be in the market for a new vehicle. You only need to want better up-fitting. Whether that means improving the turnaround time to get the vehicle into service faster, or making sure you don’t do anything unsafe when integrating the aftermarket equipment, Crown North America can help.
