Welcome Crowcon!

Published on: 16/09/2014

More than 200 people from Abingdon based Crowcon Detection Instruments Ltd, a leading gas detection company, have successfully relocated into its brand new, purpose built HQ at 172 Brook Drive at Milton Park.

Crowcon, part of Halma plc, outgrew its HQ at Abingdon Business Park where it had been based for more than 25 years. Its brand new facility totals 40,000 sq ft, a 30% increase over its old facility, and accommodates all its existing functions plus additional customer training and product demonstration facilities, full service test and calibration laboratories and improved employee facilities.

Mike Ophield, managing director, Crowcon Detection Instruments Ltd, explained: “After more than two years’ planning, I am really delighted to see our brand new facility come to life. As 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.”

Andrew Barlow, commercial director, MEPC’s Milton Park added: “Crowcon is another outstanding company to welcome to Milton Park. Not only is it a leading international business that is expanding at an incredibly fast rate, but it is a pioneer in the field of gas detection. We are very proud to have delivered Crowcon its new impressive HQ in such a concentrated timeframe and are sure that everyone in the company will benefit from being part of what is a dynamic and diverse business and science community.”

Crowcon relocated between 15 and 18 August 2014 and its official launch took place on 5 September 2014.
