“It takes an endless amount of history to make even a little tradition.”
Prosig was established in 1977 by members of ISVR (Institute of Sound & Vibration Research) at Southampton University. The company’s goal was to provide customers with the best available hardware and software for noise and vibration measurement.
The existing UK headquarters, in Fareham UK, were completed in 1982 and Prosig USA, Inc. was founded in 1986.
In 2001 an engineering center was opened in Detroit to provide high quality support to customers in the area.
In 2014 Prosig became part of Condition Monitoring Group (CMG) Limited. Together, Prosig & CMG have numerous product and technology synergies, which provide significant additional opportunities within key application areas that meet many of CMG’s objectives in terms of future product diversification.
Prosig maintains a network of agents to support business in Europe, North America, India, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and South America.
The company remains focused on producing reliable, high quality, integrated measurement solutions that allow their customers to achieve best practice by using the latest tools available to the test engineer.
