Industrial Scientific Corp.

Our Story


The company started in 1976 as the Research Division of National Mine Service Company (NMS). The Division was formed to develop methane detectors for underground mines. In 1985, NMS sold the division, and Industrial Scientific Corporation began independent operations on January 25 of that year.

Manufacturing Heritage

Investments in research and engineering led to patented technologies and state-of-the-art designs. In turn, the company's products became known as the most rugged and dependable in the world.

New Technologies

In 2004, Industrial Scientific introduced iNet and the concept of Gas Detection as a Service. The company has also emerged as a leader in safety data analytics. Customers now have access to information that helps them identify and correct problems before they happen.

Looking Ahead

The future of Industrial Scientific will be shaped by a Vision of eliminating death in the workplace by the end of this century. With a solid track record of innovation, the company is well on its way to achieving that Vision.
