In 1926 Dovianus began as an instrumentation and equipment manufacturer. In the late 1970s, the demand for environmentally safe sampling systems increased spectacularly. We saw and acknowledged this trend and decided to focus on the development, production, and marketing of sampling systems. Soon, Dopak sampling systems became the international standard for performance and quality in closed-loop and closed vent sampling systems.
Dovianus is now the expert in sampling systems worldwide. Dovianus is based in Bergschenhoek, the Netherlands. In 1981 the company established Dopak PFT Corp. in Houston, Texas, to serve our many North American customers with local access to our sampling systems expertise.
Recent developments have led to new products and applications. In the future, Dopak® samplers will be used more frequently in the pharmaceutical, food, and biochemical industries throughout the world.

While our businesses, locations, and opportunities are very diverse, the ethical standards that have been the hallmark of our Company throughout its history to the present day are rock solid and uniform wherever Crane businesses are operating. Crane Co. was founded by Richard Teller Crane who resolved at that time “to conduct my business in the strictest honesty and fairness, to avoid all deception and trickery, to deal fairly with customers and competitors, to be liberal and just toward employees, and to put my whole mind upon the business.” These remain our standards today. A career at Crane means you’ll work toward a goal of continuous improvement in everything you do within a highly ethical environment that fosters personal development and advancement.
