Crane Aerospace & Electronics plans to expand Lynnwood facility

my newsCrane Aerospace & Electronics, a segment of Crane Co., plans to expand its manufacturing capabilities with a new facility that will be built at its Lynnwood location.

The facility will be designed for testing and manufacturing mass fuel flow transmitters, one of the product lines manufactured at the Lynnwood site. Construction of the 12,000 square-foot facility will begin this summer.

Production requirements for Crane Fuel Flow Transmitters are expected to grow rapidly beginning in 2017 due to several recent program wins, including the CFM LEAP engines for the Boeing 737 MAX, Airbus A320neo and COMAC C919 aircraft, as well as the Pratt & Whitney PurePower® engine for the Airbus A320neo, Bombardier CSeries aircraft, Mitsubishi Regional Jet and others.

A state-of-the-art building, infrastructure and equipment design will enable development and rigorous testing of fuel flow transmitters, which must operate at higher temperatures and higher accuracies for the new engine programs. The new facility will permit testing at fuel temperatures up to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and at the operating pressures of new engines. The facility expansion is expected to result in the employment of about 60 skilled workers.

“We anticipate doubling our production volume of fuel flow transmitters over the next five years,” said Brendan Curran, President of Crane Aerospace & Electronics. “The new facility will provide us with the capabilities and capacity to meet our customers’ demand as they introduce the new generation of engines. Crane’s continued commitment to the growth of the Lynnwood campus is a direct result of the outstanding performance, quality and dedication of the 780 employees at the site.”

The Lynnwood facility is located at 16700 13th Avenue West.
