Crypton is a recognised brand leader in Engine Diagnostics, Tuning and Emissions testing, with some 100 years experience in testing engines. Formed in 1890 under the name of Newton’s to manufacture electric motors and generators, the company then expanded into the development of testing equipment for the motor industry in the 1920’s. The company was sold to Lancashire Dynamo and Crypto, who wanted to expand their garage equipment interests; the company was renamed CRYPTON. From this early involvement Crypton grew to play a prominent role in shaping the history of engine diagnostic equipment, soon establishing itself as a household name and with the Crypton brand becoming synonymous with the testing of engines. The role of engine diagnostics has evolved over the years, from its origins in tuning through to the fault finding, diagnostics and emissions control of today. Crypton has remained at the forefront of this development, providing innovative and quality products to meet the needs of the garage market. Innovative development continues to be a cornerstone of the Company, which has ensured continuity of market share.
