America's  most innovative thermometer company was founded in 1953. Wahl instruments, originally based  in Culver City, CA, was formed to manufacture precision temperature instruments for  industry. Since then, Wahl developed the first portable digital platinum-RTD thermometer system and the first digital universal soldering iron tester to prove government compliance standards.

Wahl was also the first to bring the industry a  portable, non-contact, handheld infrared thermometer at an affordable price point,  without sacrifice in accuracy and reliability. Wahl is also recognized for developing and  patenting the first miniature temperature  recording label. This useful, inexpensive and accurate product is found in thousands  of maintenance applications throughout the world today and is credited with the creation of an  entire industry grown in its path. Not content to be solely a pioneer, Wahl remains a  leading manufacturer of all these products.


Wahl instruments recently became affiliated  with Palmer Instruments and has now consolidated all sales, service and manufacturing  operations in Palmer's newly renovated Asheville, NC facility. Here the innovative tradition will continue.
