Certificate of achievement commemorates Megger centenary
foundation for future developments
"We're proud of our heritage," said
Nick Hilditch, of Megger, "but we strongly believe that the
most important aspect of our history is that it provides us with an
unbeatable foundation for current and future developments. Megger is
always at the forefront of technology - it developed, for example,
the first practical insulation tester, as well as the world's first
multimeter, and this spirit of innovation continues to be very much
to the fore in all of our operations."
"In the last few months alone,"
continued Hilditch, "we have launched a radically new
combination tester which sets new standards of convenience and
performance for electrical contractors; as well as such
ground-breaking products as 10kV insulation and low resistance
testers, power quality analyzers, and optical fiber installation
testers specifically designed to meet the needs of the fast-growing
data communication market."
A century ago, Megger was a small UK-based
organisation, manufacturing a handful of products. Today, Megger
products are developed and manufactured at sites in Dover, England;
Dallas, Texas; and Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Sales and technical
support offices are maintained throughout the USA and Canada, as
well as in Dover, England; Paris, France; Madrid, Spain; Mumbai,
India; Sydney, Australia; and Bahrain.
A global network of several hundred sales
engineers, product literature and technical manuals in seven
languages, and multilingual displays on their products, means that
Megger can provide a unique local service to customers anywhere in
