Barksdale, founded in 1949, is a leading manufacturer of highly engineered control products. As a subsidiary of Crane Co., a $3B industrial conglomerate, Barksdale has a leading brand position in instrumentation, with focus on General Industrial, Oil & Gas and Transportation end markets. With proprietary technologies, Barksdale’s regulators, pressure switches and electronic instrumentation products have carved a niche for themselves in demanding applications. Supported by strong financial standing, the business is positioned to grow from $60M to $200M in revenue within the next three to five years.
