Landmark Manager transitions into Neenah Foundry role
TWSI's (Tactile Walking Surface Indicators) or DWP's (Detectable Warning Plates "USA" ) are by no stretch of the imagination something new on the market, as they have been used around the world in various other countries for over 60 years. Here in Canada, these products have been included in certain installations for the past 10 years.
Stronger focus on growing Landmark division in place for 2016
Effective December 1, 2015, Crozier Enterprises closed its Play! by Crozier division and all its product lines, with the exception of RockCraft, the leading manufacturer of concrete climbing rocks for bouldering (manufactured in BC, Canada's rock climbing capital).

Very Warm Wishes from all of us at Crozier Enterprises. We hope this greeting finds you, your business, and your family well.

Cast iron Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSI's) durable for Canadian winters
Winter is coming. And there’s no avoiding it. It might still be sunny and fairly warm outside but as the last leaves fall, a chill will creep across the ground and soon there will be snow.
Number one priority when winter hits - keeping the roads safe. This means winter tires and snowplows. As far as pedestrians with vision loss, they rely on the durability of Tactile Walking Surface Indicators(TWSI's) to withstand harsh weather conditions and safely alert them of upcoming street crossings.
While plastic plates have been shown to crack over time from the impact of snowplows, Neenah Foundry’s TWSI’s are made from cast iron materials that don’t wear, peel or crack.
Skip storage with Eternit's outdoor furniture that withstands Canadian winters
As sad as it is to begin thinking about moving indoors after enjoying your outdoor furniture all summer. One positive is being able to skip out on the winterizing process and allowing your furniture to be left outside, uncovered, 365 days a year.
This hassle-free option is possible with Eternit, a line of hand-crafted outdoor furnishings that score big on both durability and style. Their products are built (and tested) for the harshest conditions, so you can rest easy leaving them outdoors year round. A bonus: your garden and patio look nicer when your outdoor furniture is left outside – much better than looking at an empty patio during the winter.

Thomas Steele benches line the streets as part of revitalization project
Hailed as Hamilton’s “destination for inspiration” for its tasty dining options, unique fashion and fabulous finds, Ottawa Street has become a staple in the city; drawing both locals and tourists alike to its eclectic charm.
