The Company is an 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 as the role of its products has changed with the developments in vehicle technology.

Some of the major product landmarks include:

Dieseltune has been manufacturing diesel diagnostic products for over 40 years. Many innovative diagnostic tools have been produced over the years, but a significant addition to the range was introduced in October 1992 - the DX.210 smokemeter established Dieseltune as a world leader in the field of diesel engine emissions analysis. This model has now been successfully used in virtually every country that has an emission control program. A digital version of this popular smokemeter was introduced 1998 - the DX.230, which enabled the new measuring head to be connected to a PC.

Wheelforce was set up in 1982 to provide wheel and tyre service equipment to the motor industry and rapidly became recognised as one of the leading suppliers of top quality products backed up with a high level of support and field service.

Dieseltune and Wheelforce joined Crypton in April 2001 to create one of the largest independently owned automotive equipment manufacturers in Europe.

Crypton Product Portfolio includes:

Facility and Resources

The company's headquarters are based within the Crypton Technology Business Park, with development, production sales and marketing resources. The company also has a strong training emphasis, with a purpose built training centre for providing customer product training and for development.

As of 2007 Crypton Technology, as well as Autodiagnos, have become a valuable part of the Omitec Group.
