Crane Supply Celebrates 100 Years In Canada
Toronto, Ontario, Canada-based Crane Supply, part of Crane Co., has launched its 100th anniversary celebration. The company was founded in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1906.
During its initial 70 years, the Crane name in Canada grew to include numerous plants and potteries, manufacturing everything mechanical, from boilers and radiators, to valves and pumps.
By the mid-1960s, the distribution arm had grown to 16 Canadian branches, and led to a reorganization of subsidiary companies. In 1964 Crane Supply emerged as its own operating division, focusing on the needs of mechanical contractors and industrial customers in the mining, oil and gas, and power generation segments.
Today Crane Supply encompasses 33 branches across Canada and more than 400 employees. The company is a leading national wholesale distributor of pipe, valves, fittings and accessories to professionals who design, install and maintain fluid handling systems. Key market segments include Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) and industrial and commercial mechanical contractors. For more information, visit www.cranesupply.com.
