CRU and COVID-19

CRU is complying with state and local orders at all of our facilities to protect our employees, communities, and customers. As many people as possible are working from home, so you will receive the same high levels of service from our sales, technical support, and engineering teams as you would expect. Our manufacturing, warehouse, and shipping operations personnel are following best practices to prevent the spread of the coronavirus by maintaining safe distances between people, as well as exercising high levels of cleaning throughout our premises. While we’re open for business, some customers may experience slight product shipment delays. Thank you.

CRU and our communities

The brutal, horrifying murder of George Floyd, coming on the heels of the equally unjust killings of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, has shocked us all. We hope that justice will be swiftly dispensed to the inhumane few whose vicious actions can never be excused or tolerated.

These deaths have ushered in a heightened awareness of the unfair and inequitable treatment of people based on the color of their skin. As you’ve seen, our streets have filled with those who wish to peacefully voice their opposition to such behaviors and attitudes, advocating for a fair and equitable society. Unfortunately, wanton violence has sprung up at some of these protests, a violence that is counterproductive and simply cannot be condoned.

These events remind us at CDSG that our lives are all intertwined to an extent we may not always appreciate or recognize. In the pursuit of undoing the wrong, we support the right of every person to speak out and we will join you to do our part to heal and create a better world for all.

About CRU

CRU removable storage helps people protect their data. Period. 

The CRU brand has long been associated with high-quality, rugged, and durable TAA-compliant removable storage devices crucial to securing sensitive data for military and government agencies all over the world.

CRU removables are designed, developed, and fully tested in Vancouver, Washington (across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon) headquarters. Often created in partnership with name-brand computer manufacturers, CRU removable storage drives are factory-integrated by our OEM partners into computer desktops, workstations, and laptops—as well as purpose-built systems for vehicles, aircraft and spacecraft, marine vessels, kiosks, and other types of installations.

In addition to wide adoption by government agencies, the digital cinema industry, including Hollywood studios, filmmakers, theaters, and film festivals rely on our integrated removable drive technology for post-production work, as well as making sure their creative work makes it to the theater on time. 

We are based in the United States, yet our business is global, and you’ll find our products in the hands of well-known (and not so well-known) companies, as well as government agencies, of all sizes.

The CRU removable storage brand is part of the CRU Data Security Group (CDSG), which also includes ioSafe fireproof and waterproof data storage and WiebeTech digital investigation devices.
