STRATFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ashcroft Inc. (Ashcroft) CEO and President Steven A. Culmone is proud to announce the 160th anniversary of the Ashcroft® pressure gauge. In 1852, the burgeoning use of steam power led Edward Ashcroft to produce his first revolutionary "Bourdon tube" actuated pressure gauge. With the growing need for more accurate and reliable instrumentation, Ashcroft® gauges soon became a staple on board steam ships, railroad locomotives and in industries throughout North America. 160 years later, Ashcroft produces a complete line of state-of-the-art electronic and modern mechanical instruments under the Ashcroft®, Heise®, Weksler® and Willy® brands. An international network of manufacturing, assembly and distribution operations have extended the availability of Ashcroft products to nearly every corner of the globe.
