Crane Co.’s Fluid Handling Group, comprised of the Crane Valve Group, Crane Supply and Crane Pumps & Systems, with sales of more than $1 billion globally, is well recognized as a leader in providing industrial fluid control solutions for critical performance applications, where engineered solutions matter. To better serve customers and more closely align to key target industries, Crane Co. has announced a realignment of many of its existing Valve Group brands into market focused businesses concentrating on the Chemical & Pharmaceutical and Oil, Gas & Power industries. Crane will use the new customer-focused structure to leverage its global position and drive growth of its key brands into these focused industry segments.

Under these brand names, Crane designs, manufactures and sells highly engineered fluid handling products including: Sleeved Plug Valves, Lined Valves, High Performance Butterfly Valves, Aseptic and Industrial Diaphragm Valves, Actuation, Lined Pipe, Fittings and Hoses, and Diaphragm and Peristaltic Pumps. Aligning thesestrong brands allows Crane to offer its customers fluid handling solutions for the most demanding, corrosive, erosive and high purity applications within the chemical and pharmaceutical industries and in applications where chemical processes are used.

Crane Energy Flow Solutions brings together Crane Gate, Globe & Check, Flowseal, Center Line, Pacific, Stockham, Duo-chek and Noz-chek brand names along with Crane’s Australia manufacturing & distribution business. These brands are globally recognized for providing solutions to difficult applications and driving lifelong low cost of ownership. Key products include: High Performance Butterfly Valves, Resilient Seated Butterfly Valves, Wedgeplug Valves, Pressure Seal Valves, HF Acid Valves and Engineered Check Valves. The combination of these products aligns some of the most widely used and specified products for the oil, gas & power industries.
