Jan. 31, 2012 -- In 1852, the burgeoning use of steam power led Edward Ashcroft to produce his first revolutionary "Bourdon tube" pressure gauge. With the growing need for more accurate and reliable instrumentation, Ashcroft® gauges soon became a staple on board steam ships, railroad locomotives and in industries throughout North America.
One hundred and sixty years later, Ashcroft Inc. produces a complete line of state-of-the-art electronic and modern mechanical instruments under the Ashcroft®, Heise®, Weksler® and Willy® brands. An international network of manufacturing, assembly and distribution operations have extended the availability of Ashcroft products to nearly every corner of the globe.
