Who We Are

Decades of History

Crane Renovation Group is the largest company in the family-owned Crane Group portfolio. We have the resources and financial backing to take on all sizes of projects, and the latest technology to better define scope and ensure the most accurate pricing. 


Crane Group began as a modest plastics manufacturing company in 1947, and went on to pioneer vinyl siding for exteriors in the 1970s and composite decking in the ‘90s.

The stock market fell. New construction came to a halt, and no one needed a new lighting fixture. The Crane family lost everything.
With his sons at war, Robert Crane reinvented himself and entered the burgeoning plastics industry.
Robert Crane forms his own plastics company, known as Taytec Corporation, and gave birth to what would later become Crane Plastics.
Taytec begins selling the hula hoop, which helped the company turn a recession year into a profitable one.
