How did CRWS help?

This project presented a significant challenge due to the firm deadline for returning the cars to service. To meet this deadline, we adopted logistics strategies inspired by the Canadian Army, enabling us to mobilize resources with utmost efficiency. Upon detecting critical defects, we swiftly deployed a specialized team to conduct the necessary structural repairs externally. The team committed to intensive 10-hour shifts, seven days a week, over four weeks, guaranteeing the project’s successful completion within the tight timeframe.

Advanced Inspection Techniques

We employed a proprietary problem-solving methodology, partially inspired by techniques from the Canadian Armed Forces, ensuring swift and effective resolution of challenges. Additionally, our use of specialized equipment, combined with advanced inspection techniques, allowed for a thorough and precise assessment of the project needs.

“Their passion for service and commitment to delivering a high caliber product for their clients is palpable. I see a bright future and partnership with their growing team.”
