FOUNDED IN 1950

OUR HISTORY

William “Bill” Young, who first represented Bowser Metering Systems, founded our company in 1950. In the late 1960’s, the company took on Rockwell Industrial Metering Division that evolved into Brooks Instrument Division in the early 1970’s.

In 1973, Jack Young was brought into the company to help out his father part time while he attended the University of Minnesota. In 1974, Jack became a full time salesman for the company. When Bill passed away in 1990, Jack Young and his wife, Lynn, took on the running of the company. Throughout the years the company has built a quality reputation as a supplier of flow measurement, level, and pressure instrumentation.

Jacks success stemmed from always providing the best service for his customers. Through expert knowledge of meters and instruments he provided the troubleshooting, start up and field service support. This full lifetime support after the sales has led to many repeat customers.

Karl Simer joined the company is 2005 and was a great asset in furthering the company’s success until his retirement in 2017. Thank You Karl!

Throughout the years the company has built a quality reputation as a supplier of flow measurement, level, and pressure instrumentation. Ben Phelps joined in 2015 and Tami Schumacher came aboard in 2018. Tami and Ben came with Strong Instrumentation Sales/Support backgrounds and have Jack’s strong customer first philosophy.
