How Hot or Cold is it? H-B Instrument Puts Celebrates 110 Years of Manufacturing High-Quality Thermometers and More
Date:2/18/2013

Wayne, NJ (PRWEB) February 18, 2013

2013 marks the 110 year anniversary of H-B Instrument, manufacturing and globally supplying temperature, density, weather, and time instruments to the scientific, industrial and healthcare markets. When asked about the longevity of the company, Ed Hiergesell, company President and son of Valentine Hiergesell noted that "in 1903 when William, Frank and Valentine Hiergesell founded the originally named ‘Hiergesell Brothers’ in Philadelphia, they believed that the demands of industry could be better served by one reliable source that could provide well made, accurate thermometers, hydrometers and related products. H-B employees have embraced that commitment and continue to take great pride in the products that bear our name. Today H-B Instrument has many employees with 20+ years of experience serving as great mentors to the organization.

Ed Hiergesell grew up working in the business and in 1984 purchased H-B Instrument. Shortly thereafter Ed moved operations to a larger campus in Trappe, PA just a short distance from its Philadelphia roots. While quality remained at the heart of manufacturing, H-B Instrument changed with the times. In 1990 the H-B team made a commitment to a leadership role in environmental stewardship, phasing out mercury thermometers, introducing the world’s only liquid-in-glass independently certified ‘EnviroKleen’ thermometers, offering a mercury exchange program and achieving ISO 14001 (environmental) accreditations. In addition, in 1994 an ISO 17025 (A2LA) Calibration laboratory was established

On June 1, 2012 H-B Instrument was acquired by privately owned Bel-Art Products, providing greater resources for engineering, product development research and a platform for continued growth through global distribution channels.

Further reflecting on their long established roots, Hiergesell said “While many of the processes used to manufacture our products have become automated, H-B Instrument still embraces the traditions of precision craftsmanship started 110 years ago. Today each instrument is individually tested and inspected before being offered for sale.”

H-B Instrument, a division of Bel-Art Products meets world class standards (CE, IP, DAkkS, NIST) shipping products from their ISO 14001:2004 registered, ISO 9001:2008 registered, ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited world-class calibration facility. Products include glass and electronic (CE) thermometers, timers, hydrometers, weather instruments and related instruments used and relied upon by scientists and researchers around the world.
