Paddles and Oars

A Hobby business on the side!

Being a sailor, Geoff is interested in all aspects of marine boating, and after making a new tiller for his yacht and some oars some years back, was asked to make a tiller for a friend. And then another asked for oars, and so this sideline hobby business started. See the section on Oars and Paddles

The technical advisor for coating companies and those buying coatings.

Having your own technical director is not always sensible, depending on the size of your organisation. But when you need to improve performance, or plan some new installation of plant and equipment, having someone who has done it before, and successfully is a huge benefit. Crithwood work for you on your terms, as much or as little as you need, advising about equipment, practices, standards, legislation and more. Then training your people in the things they need to know in order to continue to improve, we offer technical training in many aspects of coatings, especially galvanizing and powder-coating. Call us for a no obligation discussion on how we could help your business beat the competition, improve profitability and enjoy work more!

If you're buying / specifying coatings we can help here too. Your asset can only be protected if you specify an appropriate coating to a suitable standard.
