Chronos becomes an Employee Ownership Trust

Chronos becomes an Employee Ownership Trust

The Next Phase in the Chronos Journey

Chronos Technology Ltd, the UK’s leading resilient sync and timing expert, has transitioned to employee ownership through the Chronos Technology Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) Ltd.

Professor Charles Curry who established Chronos Technology Ltd in September 1986 and was co-owner alongside his wife, Angela Curry, had more recently been deliberating succession planning and their exit from the business.  Various options such as a third-party sale or a management buy-out were considered but quickly dismissed. Charles said “I am aware of business owners who had exited through third party sales and had not enjoyed the experience of working under new management for the agreed handover period. New owners generally change the dynamic of the business, often introducing new staff and work practise without giving opportunity to existing staff and process, and we did not want this for Chronos.” He added “Over the years we have established a work ethic that puts the customer first. The EOT protects the loyal Chronos family and ensures the customer facing continuity of the business and most importantly safeguards jobs. Going forward, in the hands of the employees, the company will benefit from increased customer engagement and the commitment to a team approach to steer the business on the next phase of its journey.”
