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.

"On the manufacturing side, surfing was a lot harder than sailing. You had to find guys who could shape, who could glass, and you're looking for good people among all these surfers, you know. Keeping the quality up was always a problem."
