    Another victim: Legendary camshaft company Crane Cams appears to have gone out of business this week.

    The Daytona Beach News-Journal, is reporting the 56-year-old Daytona Beach, Fla., company has been shuttered and its workers laid off.

    Crane's parts have become synonymous with performance and have been used by A.J. Foyt, the Wood Brothers, Bill Elliott, Richard Petty and many other well-known drivers.

    The company first made a splash at the 1961 NHRA nationals, when a dragster using Crane roller cams was piloted by "Sneaky" Pete Robinson to the Top Eliminator award, breaking records and upsetting more established competitors in the process.

    The visibility by Robinson's success and that of other racers using Crane parts helped the company grow in the 1960s as the Detroit automakers and racing thrived.

    Crane Cams was founded in 1953 and had grown into a multi-million manufacturing operation, according to its Web site.

    In late 2006, it was acquired by Mikronite Technologies Group Inc. of Eatontown, N.J.

    Update on Crane Cams: Well-known cam shafts company Crane Cams shut down Feb. 24 for restructuring but says it plans to reopen, likely sometime in March.

    All of the company’s 280 workers were laid off, though about 25 remain to work on military contracts. The closure was in response to the global economic problems, said vice president Steve Leva. He said the Daytona Beach, Fla., company planned to reopen in as soon as a week, or it may take up to 30 days.

    Crane’s parts have become synonymous with performance and have been used by A. J. Foyt, the Wood Brothers, Bill Elliott, Richard Petty and many other well-known drivers.

    The 56-year-old company first made a splash at the 1961 NHRA nationals, when a dragster using Crane roller cams was piloted by “Sneaky” Pete Robinson to the Top Eliminator award, breaking records and upsetting more-established competitors in the process.

    Robinson’s success helped the company gain recognition throughout the 1960s as racing grew and the Detroit automakers thrived.

    In late 2006, Crane was acquired by Mikronite Technologies Group Inc., and Leva said $18 million has been invested in equipment since the acquisition.

    Earlier this week, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported that Crane was closing, though more details were not available at that time.

    crane cams

    I think this one has as much todo with its industry shrinking. Between smog laws, gas crunch, and the vast improvements in engine design in the last 15 years, most people aren't willing to rip their engine apart, or OEM MFGs have made it cost prohibitive. With most valvetrains being designed pretty well from the factory, shy of the old skool hot rod scene or top fuel, their just isn't much call for aftermarket cams anymore. Most hotrodders are even dropping in factory or wrecking yard Chevy LS1,2,3,6,7 or Ford 4.6L and just leaving them alone. Just not worth the $500 and 5hp gain.

    Talked to my grandma's 96year old boyfriend who grew up in the depression about the economy. Erie similarities...

    I really hope that the white house can finger out how to stop supporting big businesses that send jobs overseas, and start supporting the local proprietors.

    I'm not judging policies, parties or people... Right now the economy is being mentioned in several threads, and unfortunately several times in this. It's not the big businesses that support our hobby. It's the mom and pop shops. The small time companies that provide great service and products, then lose their asses. All I was saying is that I hope that our new White House is able to figure out a way to provide positive support to the small businesses that make our community thrive.


    I apologize if anyone was offended politically, but I think that 95% of us on this forum would agree with me.

    You've been here a while; I shouldn't have to tell you this:

    It doesn't matter who's offended, or who agrees. The rules are the rules. I didn't edit or delete your post..but it's bait for someone else to come in swinging with comments about specific politicians and policies, hence my warning.
