Project Summary:
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

Jeff just left and I thank you for sending him over. He is very friendly and helpful. He even went the extra mile and looked at two other vents and put a bead of caulk on them (going the extra mile). Again, I really do appreciate the friendly and helpful employees at Crawford. I thank you (Brian Bausch) again for getting back to me whenever I had a question on something. No matter if it was during your work day or in the evening after cutting your lawn, you made yourself available. Please let each of your employees that have done work at our home know that we appreciate them and keep doing what they are doing.
