Moore Industries celebrates 40th anniversary
Best known for its signal interface technologies, the Southern California-based company is a supplier to several Fortune 500 manufacturers across various markets.
North Hills, CA-based Moore Industries-International Inc. , a designer and manufacturer of electronic measurement and interface instruments for the process industries, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. The company’s products are used by numerous manufacturing companies, in markets ranging from chemicals, petroleum, and power to paper, food and beverages and semiconductors, to pharmaceuticals and biotechnology products.
“We are very proud to still be designing and making our products right here in the Los Angeles area. It may sound trite, but our people really are the key,” said Leonard Moore, founder and CEO. “All of the industry awards are great, but the accomplishment I am most proud of is that at least half of our employees have been with us for over ten years. Many have been here at least 25 years, and we even have a few that have been with us since the beginning. How many 40 year old companies can say that?”
Still privately-held by Moore, the company has grown from humble garage beginnings when Moore designed and built the company’s first electronic signal converters. The company serves a global customer base and has sales and service centers located worldwide.
Best known for its signal interface technologies, the company’s product lines include signal transmitters, isolators and converters, temperature sensors, transmitters and assemblies, alarm trips, smart HART loop monitors and interfaces, and distributed I/O and data communication systems. Most recently, the company acquired a fieldbus technology division and created MooreHawke Fieldbus Worldwide to provide interconnection devices for FOUNDATION Fieldbus and PROFIBUS systems.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
