Crane Co. Reports Record Third Quarter Results

The Company’s repositioning actions are primarily focused on its European Fluid Handling operations, to reduce costs through headcount reductions and process improvements, principally at its Krombach operations in Kreuztal, Germany. In addition, as part of a continuing cost reduction strategy, certain manufacturing operations are being transferred from facilities in Germany to Company facilities in lower cost regions. Repositioning costs of $0.2 million on a pre-tax basis were recorded in the third quarter of 2012.
