Founded in 1965, Metrix traces its roots to seismic measurement technology. Initially focused on geophysical exploration, this technology also found abundant applications for vibration measurements on industrial machines. As a result, machinery condition monitoring emerged as our sole focus and has remained so for more than 45 years.
Metrix pioneered the concept of simple, affordable machinery protection with our mechanical vibration switch offerings, revolutionary 4-20mA vibration transmitters, robust high-temperature velocity sensors, and innovative impact transmitter technology for reciprocating machinery. In 1998 we acquired PMC/ BETA, the world’s leading provider of electronic vibration switches. In 2007 we acquired the vibration monitoring division of Hardy Instruments and their industry-leading portable vibration calibrators. Today, Metrix enjoys a global leadership position in all of these technologies while growing to expand our capabilities and better serve our customers.
Metrix is owned by Roper Industries, a diversified growth company with annual revenues approaching $3 billion. Roper provides a robust set of operating disciplines while allowing its businesses considerable autonomy to pursue profitable growth. The result is the best of both worlds: Metrix blends Roper’s multi-billion dollar S&P 500 stability with the agility of a smaller company, able to focus every day on delivering solutions that provide better value to our customers.
