The CRK Adelaide office and Service Centre has turned 6 months new. After internal renovations to create an expanded showroom and the commissioning of a Leica Certificated Service Centre, doors opened at 77 Fullarton Road, Kent Town in July of 2018.
Staff and clients have been able to make the most of the new location (and coffee shops), with events such as new product evenings, full day product training, staff farewells and birthdays easily catered for.
State manager John Gerhardy reflected on the first 6 months as being the most exciting time at C.R.Kennedy. In a very short timeframe we have progressed from a small service facility only catering for basic instruments to a state of the art setup handling everything from the most basic laser level to the most sophisticated TPS/GPS equipment. Our location is so easily accessible with ample carparking making it easy for rapid drop off and collect. We attempt to have very quick turnaround on service so the minimum of inconvenience is experienced.
A welcome addition to the Adelaide office has been our Service Technician, Michael Glass.
Michael brings a wealth of industry and service knowledge, in addition to a wide range of contacts that can now benifit from the sales and service that CR Kennedy Survey can provide.
