For someone unfamiliar with Crane USA, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Crane USA makes humidifiers, air purifiers, fans and space heaters. We’re most known for our commitment to style and design while also maintaining high quality and efficiency. Our Drop Humidifiers and Adorable humidifiers are our most recognized products and will be on display at the New York Baby Show.
What’s the background of the company? When did it start? How has it evolved over time?
In 2005, Crane exhibited at the International Home and Housewares show where we introduced, for the first time to retailers and consumers, a whimsical animal shape humidifier that not only worked well as a humidifier but added style and a friendly design to a child’s room. Within the first day of the show, we caught the attention of Bed Bath and Beyond and Target. From there, we grew to be available in most major retailers in the U.S. We have international distribution in Canada and many countries in Europe and Asia. We continue to develop new designs, technology and innovations in all our product lines. In 2015, Consumer Reports ranked Crane’s adorable line #1 for small/medium room humidifiers.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Crane USA?
Crane’s blue and white Drop Humidifier is probably the most recognizable along with Crane’s Elephant and Frog Adorable Humidifiers. Newest in our product collections is our smartHOME Wi-Fi series which includes the smartDROP Cool Mist Humidifier. The only humidifier on the market with includes a stylish humidifier stand. The Crane smartHOME series also has an infrared heater, a tower heater, an air purifier, and a fan.
What sets Crane USA apart from other housewares companies?
Crane’s sense of style and innovativeness. Before Crane, there was no other humidifier company that took color and style into account when producing a humidifier. For years, humidifiers were meant to only put out mist and not meant to be part of the room décor. Crane humidifiers were designed to be seen, to evoke a smile.
What can parents expect to see from Crane USA at the New York Baby Show?
Parents can expect to see some new designs in our Adorable collection including a sheep and unicorn as well as the award-winning Travel Humidifier. The Travel Humidifier won the IHA Innovation award and JPMA innovation award in 2015 and continues to be a favorite for everyone in the family to use while traveling, at work, or anywhere they need a little extra humidity to feel better. Crane designs are meant to be child-friendly, and the cool mist is safe to use with children overnight, not to mention it will help relieve symptoms related to the cold and flu.
