- Who Are We? PDF Print E-mail

Crownhill Associates is a privately held company founded in 1994 by Lester Wilson and his wife Beryl. Originally working from a home office, the company sustained year on year growth to break through $1M turnover in 1999. Since then growth has continued, the company has spawned wholly owned businesses Silcom Technologies, supplying Smart cards and SIM cards to Industry and 3gforensics Limited, providing technical and forensic services to law enforcement and Government and Builder Limited, property management and investment company.

Building on the deep and broad experience of the founder and its loyal & committed employees, Crownhill pioneered in focusing its attention on embedded microcontroller development tools and smart card design in the small and medium enterprise sector.

Having spawned Silcom Technologies and 3gforensics, Crownhill continues to show year on year growth returning healthy profits, allowing it to invest heavily in R&D exploiting advances in technology to develop new products services and intellectual property.


Based in Ely Cambridgshire, with its major shareholding still in the hands of the founders, -we value our independance - Crownhill is now a successful SME that delivers - both on IT products and services and on empowerment of its employees.

Our thoroughness and depth in focusing on real customer needs, combined with strong technical abilities and constant people orientation has resulted in steady growth and success in providing solutions to a diverse range of clients from private individuals to multinational Corporates and Governments not forgetting the small and medium sized enterpises that encompass the bulk of our client base.

We have had the privilege of building strong relationships with our clients in several areas, allowing us to develop comprehensive solutions for, amongst others:

  • Universites and colleges in the UK and overseas.
  • UK government bodies and international government departments.
  • UK, USA and European law enforcement agencies.
  • Volvo, Ford Research, GPT, Philips, Group4, Orange, Vodaphone, 1-2-1 (now T-Mobile), Ericsson, Kenwood, Marconi and Motorola.

Customer Satisfaction is our ultimate goal. We realise that without our customers, our company will not exist. Unlike companies with layers of bureaucracy, we take a refreshing customer oriented approach. You ask for it, and we deliver. It's that simple...The way business should be.

We invite you to take the opportunity to contact us, so we may be able to demonstrate our approach to business. We have strong skills in a wide range of areas, including consulting, software development, hardware design, networking, electronic communications and the internet, training and user support.
