Cronin Movers Case Study
Fujifilm Ireland needed to update the processing laboratory in the Camera Shop at 56 upper Grafton street. The scope of works required the extraction of the existing machine and installation of the replacement machine. Access was only possible by craning both machines over a 3-storey building and landing the machine on a small balcony after extracting the existing machine requiring a 20-tonne crane to be parked at the top of Grafton Street Dublin one of Ireland busiest streets for a 3-hour operational window without causing hindrance to the public or traffic.

Customer Comment: As outlined above, FUJIFILM had a complex installation of new equipment and removal of old equipment for one of our key customers in Dublin City Centre. Due to customer’s location at the top of Grafton Street, the equipment move could only take place between the hours of 3.00am and 6.30am. Cronin Mover’s expertise and experience were invaluable throughout this project and they took total ownership of each task, from arranging necessary permits, method statement and ensuring health and safety procedures were adhered to. On the morning of the equipment move, the pre-planning paid off and a very competent crew ensured everything went to schedule. Both FUJIFILM and more importantly our end customer were more than impressed with Cronins and would have no hesitation in recommending them.
