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, 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 ChemPharma Flow Solutions brings together the Xomox, Resistoflex, Saunders, Revo, Depa and Elro brands.

Crane Energy Flow Solutions includes Crane Gate, Globe & Check, Flowseal, Center Line, Pacific, Stockham, Duo-chek and Noz-chek brand names, along with Crane’s Australia manufacturing and distribution business. Key products include: high-performance butterfly valves, resilient seated butterfly valves, wedgeplug valves, pressure seal valves, HF acid valves and engineered check valves.

The two groups will continue to support targeted marketing and distribution channels to supply these focus markets in addition to the other key markets in which they do business today, including building services, biofuels, mining, marine and others.

Crane Valve Services and Crane Fluid Systems (Crane Ltd.), also part of the Crane Valve Group, will not be impacted by the realignment. Crane Valve Services will continue to focus on nuclear power, valve testing technology, products, and monitoring solutions and services, and will continue to have responsibility for all Crane brands in the nuclear power market.

In addition, Terry Ross has been named president of Crane Energy Flow Solutions. He succeeds Len Fruci, who is now global vice president sales - oil, gas and power. Bill Hayes, Xomox, will become vice president sales, chemical/pharmaceutical.
