Crane Electronics celebrates its 50th anniversary

Crane Electronics is celebrating its 50th anniversary of delivering torque measurement, control and quality auditing solutions.

Crane Electronics was established on November 4th, 1971, by its founder David Crane, and has since gone on to grow into a global company with head offices based in Hinckley in the UK and in Illinois in the USA.

Today, Crane Electronics works alongside some of the world’s biggest manufacturing brands in a wide range of industries including Automotive, Aerospace, Construction, Marine, Rail and General Industry.

Crane’s current product range includes torque wrenches, transducers, data collectors, torque testers, analysers and complete system software packages.

Adrian Duffin, Managing Director said: “Everybody at Crane is extremely proud of our 50th Anniversary. Over the years, we have helped many customers in several industries with innovative solutions. These have enabled customers to improve their products and quality and importantly given them reassurance that their processes are safe.

The way we deal with others is important to us. We pride ourselves on respecting and appreciating our employees, customers, suppliers and partners, working together to find the best way forward. Sometimes we just provide a friendly face for advice! What we offer and the way that we do it has proved to be a good recipe for the first 50 years, so why change it? There are many more products in development and we’re always here to help. I couldn’t be more excited about the next 50 years!”
