In addition, the two companies will now share an international network of more than 400 movers in 175 countries, servicing close to 25,000 relocations annually. ‘We are excited to become part of the Armstrong organisation,’ said Tori Ferrante, president of Crown Worldwide Moving & Storage’s international division. ‘Crown is proud of what it has achieved in the last 40 years and we look forward to continuing that success within the Armstrong family of companies. The business model Armstrong offers is such a great fit for us.

'The only change is that we will have more global opportunities because of our combined sales activities, complemented by coast-to-coast locations.’ Speaking about the similarities between Armstrong and Crown, Crown Worldwide chief executive officer Robert Bowen told FIDI Focus: ‘We are very similar in our management styles, in our mission statements, and our DNA is like a mirror image – it’s an exact match. There are so many synergies.’
