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 Inc. produces a complete line of state-of-the-art electronic and modern mechanical instruments under the Ashcroft, Heise, Weksler and Willy brands.
