Fluke Corp. is marking 75 years in business by honoring the company’s founder, and the modest beginnings that were sparked by his invention of a highly accurate benchtop power meter. Spawned in a basement workshop in Springfield, Conn., the John Fluke Engineering Co. was pioneered in 1948 by John Fluke, a U.S. Navy World War II veteran and Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate. 

“John Fluke said ‘always give the customer a little bit more than they paid for,’ which is the philosophy that drives all of us at Fluke to create remarkable tools that improve efficiencies, keep equipment running and ensure that the technicians who take the measurements can do so safely,” Fluke Corp. President Jason Waxman said. “Fluke has a long history of putting its customers first and producing tools and solutions that help them get their jobs done smarter, safer and faster. Together we are building tomorrow.” 

As part of its plans to mark the anniversary, Fluke has committed to invest in technical education and training with major grants at Washington State University, the University of Washington and the California non-profit We Care Solar.
