INDEV-ACT was originally founded in 1947 in Rhode Island and become one of the earliest patent holders of web based measurement. In 1969, Indev moved to Rockford, IL and quickly grew into a $10 million dollar company both domestically and internationally with beta scanning systems. During the early 1980’s, Barbara-Coleman acquired the company and integrated measurement with process control. This added a significant knowledge base to the Indev group in terms of extrusion control feedback systems as well as measurement. In the 1990’s, Indev became a stand- alone company again still very strong in process control but with the primary focus on developing the best in-line measurement systems.
Throughout the years, Indev expanded from plastic extrusion and simple coating measurement into Paper, Metals, Non-wovens, Building Products and Advanced Coat Weight Measurement and Control. Over the past year, Indev has invested in several additional people in software development, design, controls, and service. Along with the investment in our people, Indev has purchased a temperature controlled manufacturing facility with over 15,000 square foot and features a new applications and sensor development lab.
As a company, Indev now has manufacturing in the US, India and Germany along with additional service and support offices in China, Netherlands, Brazil, Singapore, Taiwan and Korea. This provides a World Class Manufacturing and Support capability second to none within the combined industries. One thing will always remain the same however: Our commitment to provide the BEST VALUE SOLUTION to the CUSTOMER—– ALWAYS!
