    History of Crane Engineering

    Crane Engineering was founded in Appleton, Wisconsin, in 1939 by Herbert Crane as a pump supplier to the paper industry. Three generations of the Crane family have grown the business well beyond pumps and fluid process equipment.

    Crane Engineering Today

    Today, led by the founder's grandson, Lance Crane, Crane Engineering focuses on helping customers improve fluid process performance and reduce their total cost of ownership. Crane Engineering is one of the midwest's leading providers of fluid process solutions, and Wisconsin's largest pump and valve distributors with more than 90 employees.

    The company's offerings have expanded beyond the distribution business unit to include the Service and Repair Center and OptiFlow™ Integrated Skid Systems.


    Crane Engineering was honored with the Company Innovation Award by the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce in 2016. Crane has also been the recipient of numerous sales awards from represented manufacturers.
