Duncan Gillis 
President and CEO, John Crane

John Crane is more than just one of the world’s leading providers of engineered technology. We supply and service the products used by our customers in energy services and other process industries for their mission-critical operations — many of which involve extremely challenging conditions. In doing so, our 6,900 employees help our customers safely supply energy to communities around the world.

Our outstanding reputation for designing and engineering high-quality, durable, customized solutions is globally recognized. And our solutions — ranging from seals, filtration systems and bearings to couplings and artificial lift equipment — are backed by the largest global service network in the industry. We combine technical expertise and innovation, geographic reach and superior quality standards, and customer service and responsibility to provide the reliability, efficiency and constant uptime on which our customers depend.

The global demand for energy is growing and our customers are tasked with increasing production in a way that is safe, affordable, efficient and environmentally responsible. Helping our customers meet this demand responsibly is extremely important to us. We partner with our customers and help them meet the latest environmental standards and keep their operations safe and controlled.

We’ve been at the forefront of innovation throughout our 95-year history, and we’re committed to maintaining that position, investing in R&D and partnering with our customers to meet their evolving needs.

Headquartered in Chicago, our company is the largest division of Smiths Group, a global technology company listed on the London Stock Exchange. In addition to John Crane’s offerings, Smiths Group delivers products and services for threat and contraband detection, medical devices and communications markets worldwide. Together, the five divisions of Smiths Group make the world safer, healthier and more productive.

I invite you to learn more about John Crane and what we have to offer — you’ll quickly see why I believe that, after nearly a century of leadership, our story is still being written.

Sincerely,

Duncan Gillis
President and CEO, John Crane
