Crawford Company assisted with the KONE Christmas Tree project. The company was brought in to design and fabricate the support structure for the 43-foot Christmas Tree. Crawford's dedicated team worked, around the clock, to assist with last-minute adjustments during the installation process. The support stand weighed a total of 2500 pounds (20' x 20' square). The holiday tradition began at the former KONE Tower and has now continued at KONE's new building at Bass Street Landing.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING
Our new system that Crawford put in is significantly better than what we had in the past. We have a zone system in; it controls the entire house and the energy savings have been dramatic for us. We recommend a zone system to anyone.
