The Early Years

Dr. Jerome Kurz, Founder

During the 1960's, Dr. Jerome Kurz revolutionized air flow measurement by developing a series of durable, compact, and highly accurate thermal anemometer sensors that electronically measured gas flow. From the roots of this early product development, Dr. Kurz founded Kurz Instruments, Inc. in 1977.

Dr. Kurz launched the company with the intent of integrating his engineering skills with technology to create products that help the environment and solve some of the extreme measurement and monitoring challenges facing industries. The company grew from making portable instrumentation to more rugged industrial devices used in some of the harshest air and gas flow environments.

The heart of the company's products are its rugged, solid-state velocity sensors that are based on the cooling effect of a moving gas over a heated sensor element. Kurz is the recognized leader in thermal convection mass flow meters.

Second Generation

Daniel Kurz came to Kurz Instruments after a successful career as a research and development engineer in the medical device industry. Daniel has worked at Kurz Instruments for 2 decades while earning the position of operations manager, general manager, president and is currently the CEO of the company. With his proven track record managing Kurz Instruments coupled with his passion for technological innovation, Daniel continues his father’s legacy.
