Pa.-based Company Displays Advanced Gas Monitor at Expo
Attendees at the National Safety Council's 95th annual Conference & Expo in Chicago will have a chance this year to see one of Pittsburgh's fastest growing, innovative companies. On Oct. 11, Industrial Scientific Corp., a global provider in gas detection and monitoring instruments, systems, and related services, was named the Advanced Manufacturing Category Leader at the Pittsburgh Technology Council's Tech 50 Awards Program. The program annually recognizes the region's leading technology-oriented companies in five categories for achievements in growth and innovation.
"I am honored to accept this award on behalf of the 800 talented, dedicated, smart, hard-working and service-oriented employees of Industrial Scientific,” Chairman and CEO Kent McElhattan said upon receiving the award. "We are proud to be part of the Pittsburgh community. We're proud of the value system that is so prevailing in Pittsburgh; a value system that places priority on faith, family, and work."
An independent panel of technology experts evaluated nominees headquartered in the 13-county southwestern Pennsylvania region. The panel based their selections on several criteria including sales growth, employee growth and retention, innovation, and market leadership.
One good example of that innovation is on display at Industrial Scientific's booth in the form of the BM25 Transportable Stand Alone Multi-Gas Monitor. This monitoring device provides simultaneous measurement of up to five gases and comes equipped with a large flashing beacon and 103 dB audible alarm. Designed for team protection or area surveillance, the BM25 is most suitable for rescue teams, rig monitoring, mobile or short term work, and areas where fixed detection systems are not present.
