Company History

Over Half A Century Of Providing Measurement Solutions

For over half a century NOSHOK has been a pioneer in our industry by continually providing innovative solutions, unparalleled customer support, outstanding value and a broad offering of premium quality product lines.

Established in 1967, NOSHOK, Inc. was one of the first companies to offer a liquid filled pressure gauge. This leading-edge feature slowly caught on as the industry began to recognize the extended service life and enhanced performance that a liquid filled pressure gauge offers. Since those early years, we’ve built on that foundation of quality and value, and grown to be an industry leader in the international marketplace, delivering Measurement Solutions to a wide variety of industries including oil & gas, fluid power, general industrial, automation, chemical processing, manufacturing, water & waste water, food & beverage, and many more.

We continue to forge ahead with our continually-expanding product offering, industry- leading warranties and forward-thinking customer support tools such as the live chat feature on our website and our e-catalog option that allows a user to drill down to an individual part number for specific product data and specifications.
