Throughout its history, Crane Co. has had an unwavering commitment to the words and ideals of our founder, Richard Teller Crane. That commitment — which set the standards for a small company whose landmark innovations helped to drive the American Industrial Revolution — has guided our actions and investments for over 150 years. It continues to guide us as a global, strategically linked, integrated operating company of core businesses that are working together with shared values and shared discipline to achieve profitable growth.
“I am resolved to conduct my business in the strictest honesty and fairness; to avoid all deception and trickery; to deal fairly with both customers and competitors; to be liberal and just toward employees and to put my whole mind upon the business.”
R.T. Crane, July 4, 1855
