Camshaft reads CWC 274-anyone know which company?

I pulled the Chevy 350 apart today and I'm trying to identify the camshaft. On the shaft it reads "CWC" and on the end it has 274 stamped into it. I know the heads on this motor had stock springs. Does anyone have any idea which cam company manufactured this and how I can find the duration/lift figures? Thanks as always for any help.

I don't remember for sure but I'm pretty sure it's a TRW stock replacement cam. I bought one several years ago from a local parts store.

I pretty much think that's what this is. I remember the rebuilder telling me he bought a stock rebuild kit from Advance or someone like that years ago. The kit came with a standard timing gear/chain and cast pistons. Thanks.

The casting CWC is from the manufacturer of the cam blank. I had this same question with Crane Cams once.
