Member Connect at John Crane Uk Limited in Partnership with Lombard

Customer collaboration. Building relationships and revenue.

Markets don’t stand still. And neither do manufacturers. As manufacturers look to serve their customers better, their business models are changing – away from price focus to long-term value - through the delivery of enhanced service offerings. And by collaborating with customers they are building relationships and revenue in the process.

Join us at John Crane’s state of the art operational and technical centre in Slough. A world leading provider of products and services for major process industries, the business has delivered substantial growth through its collaborative approach to customer support.

Hear from Neil Hodge, VP for EMEA Operations about how they have achieved outstanding flexibility, created a global network of support engineers and built unrivalled technical capabilities, helping their customers to benefit from reduced inventory costs.

Take a tour of their modern operational facilities which includes product testing, machine shop, assembly and lapping centre and the continuous parts warehouse.

Find out about how you can benefit from alternative sources of finance designed to help you grow your business.
