Crown can!

Crown History

1938

Founded as a metal finishing subcontractor, Crown grew to include commercial van installations and eventually the police segment with Ford.
.
.

 2001

Crown became the Tier 1 supplier for Ford police vehicles and continued as the Tier 1 supplier of the Crown Victoria until the end of production in 2011, building over 110,000 vehicles during this time.
.

 2015

Acquired by Kerr Industries, Crown renewed its focus on providing leading customer service, integrated solutions that are backed by an engineering and a technical support team with extensive knowledge of OEM systems and processes.

Today

With the Kerr Industries team, Crown has made significant positive changes in how we do business.

 

We are committed to the law enforcement up-fitting market and have focused our business on this as the primary thing we do. Our focus is no longer divided in varied directions with different products and services, ensuring our team are experts in law enforcement up-fitting.

 

 

Since integrating with Kerr, Crown has:

Tripled the size of the engineering department

Implemented a new management software system that tracks every step in the up-fitting of a vehicle.

Perfected our wiring harness process & product offering

Expanded our sales force dedicated to police up-fitting, offering customers the best service and customer support possible

Trained & renewed our work force of installers, quality control inspectors, engineers and customer service members

Moved and expanded our plant to new and better facilities

Added a dedicated phone line staffed with knowledgeable and trained people

Enhanced our warranty to 3-year/36,000 miles, in addition to the factory warranty

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.

To complement our quality workmanship, we source the best materials from top manufacturers and suppliers.

The Crown Difference

At Crown, we put our customers’ needs first—it’s that simple. We’ve built our organization on creativity and common sense and we never back away from these principles; they form the core of everything we do.

 

As a Ford QVM partner, our production quality and quality systems are the same as theirs – they have to be.

 

We bring these systems to all the up-fits we do, whether you have one vehicle or a few hundred, we maintain FMVSS/CMVSS compliance. Our wiring is labeled and consistent vehicle to vehicle, year to year, we do not void the OE factory warranty, and we provide live technical support when you need it.

 

We are experts in ensuring that all of your specified equipment works properly in your new or existing vehicle. We regularly consult with our customers to design and develop unique parts to create Ready-for-Patrol™ packages. That is the Crown difference!
