Hydro International - Valeport Vision for Success
As UK manufacturer of oceanographic and hydrometric instrumentation, Valeport has come a long way since its humble beginnings in Dartmouth, Devon (UK) some 38 years ago. Innovation and quality has always kept the company one step ahead.
Originally established by Jim Stevens in 1969, Valeport's first product was a simple impeller-type device called the 'Braystoke Flow Meter', used in the feasibility study for the Thames Barrier project in London. Building on the popularity of that first product, a range of flow meters and accessories quickly followed. When Oceonics purchased Valeport as a strategic acquisition prior to its flotation in 1981 the product range soon expanded and Valeport expertise grew in a variety of technologies, such as CTD.
