Our Company

HELPING CUSTOMERS MANAGE ENERGY COSTS SINCE 1988

FROM THE BEGINNING, OUR FOCUS WAS CLEAR

Like so many other great companies in the 80s, DENT Instruments was a dream actualized in a home garage – with the idea that a tool could be both environmentally useful, as well as economically beneficial.

A STRONG COMMITMENT TO CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

Today, from a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, we continue our 30-year reputation for providing instruments of the highest quality whose robust design, small size, and remote data acquisition make them the loggers of choice worldwide.

FORWARD MOMENTUM IS FUNDAMENTAL TO OUR SUCCESS

Over the next decade, DENT’s growth is set to exceed all expectations. With new products in development, we will remain an industry trailblazer, while also continuing to be a key contributor to the economic health of our home in Central Oregon.
