Mystery camshaft question

We are in process of clearing out excess stock out of the shop and found a couple new 22re cams. They are not stock and we cant figure out who built them. On the backside of the rear journal it is stamped Cal Cams. It has scribed 268 deg for duration and has #337c for a grind number I am assuming. I cant find any company past or present named cal cams or any variation of that. I am not sure of valve lift specs just duration. I cant imagine the shop buying any cam other than trd or downey. Trd is a bunch of idiots and cannot tell me ANYTHING about their cams or any of their products for that matter. They told me to call the dealer, which i did and they cant tell me anything without a part # if it is trd which I dont have. Anyone ever hear of this company or can shed some light on this? We are gonna be selling the 2 cams we have and I would like to give accurate info as to what we are selling

Hopefully someone can confirm for sure. If I have to, I will need to send it out to have it spec'd out. I think the grind # posted will need to be the key here

We actually sat down today and figured out our ratios. It has the ratio of a stage 2 trd cam which we believe thats what it is. It is probably an older version since these cams have been here at the shop longer than I have. We have 2 and possibly have 1 sold. If anyone is interested we are looking to get $100 for the other one
