The Isotech Story – 40 Years in Business

When John Tavener launched Isotech in 1980 from a small, purpose built laboratory in Southport, he never could have imagined how far it would come.

John planned to manufacture and supply thermocouple reference units to the power industry but quickly recognised a gap in the market for effective temperature calibration equipment.

Isotech has earned an excellent reputation for their products, performance and quality and has successfully delivered and installed many complete laboratories across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Their client base is extensive and includes Panasonic and U.S. government agency NASA.

Isotech has enjoyed some major recognition and rewards over the past four decades but a proud moment for the team came recently when they received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2017 for the development of the microK Thermometry Bridge which was engineered jointly with Paul Bramley (Metrosol Ltd). In 2019 they were awarded Export Champion for the third year running (Department for International Trade).

Isotech’s success and longevity can be attributed to a number of factors – John’s entrepreneurial mindset, a team of experts, ever-evolving products and the strong partnerships that have been forged over the years.

John Tavener (President) says “We are very proud of the contribution we have made to temperature metrology over the last 40 years and we are looking forward to what the 2020s will bring.”

As preparations for their celebrations are underway, don’t expect the pace to slow down anytime soon.

With an unsurpassed drive to continue to bring new innovations to market, Isotech will continue to invest in new product development and plans are well underway to extend into new factory space to support further growth.

Isotech manufactures an extensive range of high quality calibration products and provides temperature training designed for personnel working with temperature measuring instruments and sensors.
