Business Focus section in the Distributor's Link Magazine, fall 2015 issue

In 2007 Crescent made the decision to expand our footprint in the international marketplace. We wanted to grow our presence in the “global economy”. We began by attending some trade shows in Europe and added international pages to our website. What we found surprised us a little. Many of Crescent’s domestic customers had distribution offices in other countries. This has served to strengthen our relationships with them. By quoting the satellite offices directly we are able to be more responsive to their inquiries and have a better understanding of the needs of their customers.

To that end we have become very well versed in the environmental regulations of the countries they serve, and strive to work within the regulations. We attended several classes on REACH and regularly review the changes that are made to the regulation to be sure we remain compliant.

It is our commitment to our customer’s needs that gives us the drive to be the best that we can be, and to provide a quality product to the industry both here in the US, and abroad. With faster and more direct contact with our global partners around the world, we are able to provide faster and better service, while still providing the high quality that has made Crescent a trusted partner in the fastener industry.

In an effort to be a more efficient partner we can ship directly to the satellite offices, consolidate shipments, or drop ship to your customers, depending on your needs. Our goal is to continue to grow our business without changing our commitment to trust, quality, and customer service. We believe these values are the foundation of all that we do. Our commitment to our customers will not change and our relationships will only grow and get even stronger as our business continues to grow worldwide.

If you have not already contacted us about your international business, please do, let’s grow together. If you have, THANK YOU.

The Igel team was always very proactive to be our “face” to our customers. We want to thank them for their years of partnership.

Crescent Manufacturing Warehouse Expansion Complete

Expansion Complete

After what seemed a never ending process, the approximately 6000 sq. ft. warehouse addition is finally complete. Crescent received our formal certificate of occupancy this past May. The space now houses our raw material inventory and maintenance department, both of which had outgrown their former locations. The height of the addition was designed to accommodate a second floor for a possible expansion of office space down the road. A storage room was put in over maintenance to get things started. With all our raw material inventory now under one roof we have the ability to more quickly access whatever is required to meet our customer’s needs. The expansion of our maintenance department gives us more elbow room for the routine maintenance, or more extensive refurbishing or rebuilding of any of our machinery. Less down time of our equipment means less delays in meeting delivery requirements. Have a look at the photos of our end results.

June 2015

Burlington, CT -- Crescent would like to announce the promotion of some of our personnel.

With the November retirement of Rick Green our CFO for the past 24 yrs., Aron Stevenson, who has been with Crescent since 2006, was promoted to Controller. Although Aron’s position with Crescent was previously in Sales and Customer Service/Production Control, he hold a Degree in Finance. Aron continued with Customer Service but as his responsibilities grew it became clear he needed a replacement.

This past May, Jerry Sheehan, who has been with Crescent since 2013, was promoted from Raw Material Handler into the Customer Service position. Jerry will be working with Aron and Sales as he learns the craft of servicing our customers.

In March, Ginger Doherty, our International Sales Manager and Sales Associate, was promoted to expand her area of responsibility to Domestic Sales Manager as well. Ginger has been with Crescent since 1998 and has assisted Kim Guerrette, VP Sales/Quality Coordinator for several years now as Kim’s involvement with our AS9100 Quality Program grows. We are happy to recognize Ginger’s expertise and the outstanding job she has done to build better relationships with our customer. She has been an invaluable source to Kim, Crescent, and our customers.

Please offer your congratulations to all.
