Newage Testing Instruments, Inc. was previously a division of NewAge Industries, Inc.. Newage Industries was founded in 1954 with the purchase of a small company. The company’s first products were metal hardness testers – both manufactured and imported.
Among these testers were the first of the portable “Press-and-Read” MR Series that sold for a few hundred dollars. Thousands of these testers were sold worldwide. Today the fifth generation of this tester is being sold – in addition to 16 other complete lines of hardness testers.
During the intervening years NewAge Industries began distributing and later manufacturing plastic tubing which grew to become a significant part of the business. Follow this link for more information on plastic tubing.
In January 2000, the Testing Instruments Division split from NewAge Industries to form Newage Testing Instruments, Inc. Newage Testing Instruments, Inc. is a totally distinct company, but it is still located next door to NewAge Industries, Inc.
