About CRS Group.

Since inception (1977), the divisions of CRS operated as one business entity. The year 2011 saw the need for each business entity to carry out its operations individually but incorporating them under the banner of the newly-formed CRS Group of Companies. Hence, we have the many divisions making up the CRS Group of Companies.
