This year Crane Cams celebrates 60 years as the premier manufacturer
of camshafts, valve train products, and electronic ignition systems for
automotive and Harley-Davidson® motorcycle applications. Crane Cams
was founded in 1953 and has grown to be an internationally respected
leader in the industry. With a cadre of experienced engineers and
technicians, plus newly enhanced manufacturing and R&D capabilities,
Crane Cams stands ready to provide customers with technically superior,
precision-made products, and excellent service.
Even though we’ve been “doin’ it” for 60 years, we aren’t sitting back and resting on our laurels. This year
Crane Cams is moving ahead with several exciting products for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The HI-4N
ignition module offers up to date features and technology for older bikes. The new Chris Rivas “Rocket”
signature cams, for late-model big twins, bring some new grinds, but also introduce the S&S® Easy Start
compression release technology to the Crane Cams line-up. Going fast for 60 years. We’ve been there, and
we’ve done that. Just watch where we go from here!
Crane Cams has been recognized as a recipient of the 2012 Florida Companies to Watch award, an honor
presented by the Florida Economic Gardening Institute (GrowFL) at the University of Central Florida. In its 2nd year,
Florida Companies to Watch is presented by SunTrust Banks and the University of Central Florida in association with the
Edward Lowe Foundation and with special support from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.
Florida Companies to Watch is unique because of its focus on second-stage companies and the wide-ranging industries they
represent. Those second-stage companies employed nearly 2.5 million workers.
With the industry’s largest camshaft database, which exceeds 80,000 grinds, an impressive manufacturing capability, and
an experienced tech staff (most of whom have 15+ years service with Crane Cams), the company stands ready to provide
customers with industry-leading quality products and superior service.
