MBO live and kicking

Crown Sports Lockers has just completed a successful management buyout of assets and goodwill from founder Richard Downing, who ran the company since launch in 1993.

Under directors Spencer Grimwood and Sam Palmer – Crown’s former project managers, it’s very much business as usual for the Made in Britain, FSC-certified manufacturer.

“This is the right move at the right time,” says Spencer. “Crown’s experience and expertise in locker and storage provide the perfect platform for growth following the MBO.

“New markets are already opening up for our products, as we continue to fully serve our core customer base in sport, leisure, hotels, spas and hospitality.”


The Hygienic solution for infection control

We’re excited about the launch of our brand new Hygienic range of waterproof, pathogen-resistant products.

Lockers, cupboards and tops fabricated in recycled PVC board chime with operators’ green strategies, while Biomaster technology provides a resilient, longlasting coating that is proven to kill bacterial pathogens such as E-coli and MRSA.

We’ll be rolling out the range across our existing key sectors – education, leisure, hotels and hospitality and sport – plus secondary healthcare and private care facilities as primary targets.
