    The economic crisis. The great recession. The lesser depression.

    Irrelevant are the labels, it was a financial free fall in the period between 2007-2009, from which global economies are still fighting to recover. Banks tightened the purse straps and it became increasingly difficult for businesses to access bank loans that they relied upon to maintain day to day operations. Many businesses were left with only one option: to declare bankruptcy and close their doors forever. Crowe Foundry was one of those casualties, and in January of 2009, the iron foundry was shut down and approximately 150 employees lost their jobs.

    Don't just step into the foundry where employees once worked, put on their uniforms and pick up their tools.
