For over 40 years clients have trusted Crane Engineering to provide expert forensic engineering services for industrial applications, insurance subrogation and product liability litigation.  Our multi-disciplinary practice areas include forensic engineering, consulting engineering and laboratory services, fire science, building science, mechanical failures, biomechanical engineering and data forensics.

In January of 2014, Crane Engineering acquired Safety Engineering Associates in Madison, WI.  For almost 70 years, Safety Engineering Associates has provided expert accident reconstruction, accident investigation and vehicle testing for all vehicle manufacturers and insurance companies.  Our team works with all types of vehicles – heavy trucks, automobiles, motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, etc. to provide clients with the most advanced technical expertise and vehicle understanding. 

As of January 2018, we have fully embraced one company identity and one brand.  Safety Engineering Associates is now Crane Engineering.  This move solidifies and formally aligns the acquisition, so we can better position one unified company. 

Our technical expertise, practical experience and testing capabilities provide our clients with the most comprehensive solutions to their problems.  We handle small and large projects with professionalism and a quest to uncover the issue. Our state of the art facilities, equipment and test track along with our nationally recognized staff, allow us to handle the most difficult of projects.  Clients can feel confident they will receive thorough, confidential and prompt service no matter what the project.

We have offices in Minnesota and Wisconsin.  We work nationally and internationally, with quick access in the Midwest.
