Who Are Prosig?

This is our blog where we share knowledge and best practice with engineers, researchers and academics across the world. You can find Prosig’s main website here.

Prosig was established in 1977 by members of ISVR (Institute of Sound & Vibration Research) at Southampton University. The company’s goal was to provide customers with the best available hardware and software for noise and vibration measurement.

The existing UK headquarters, in Fareham UK, were completed in 1982 and Prosig USA, Inc. was founded in 1986. In 2001 an engineering center was opened in Detroit to provide high-quality support to customers in the area.

In 2014 Prosig became part of Condition Monitoring Group (CMG) Limited. The combination of Prosig’s expertise & heritage and the technologies & knowledge in CMG has led to significant advantages to our existing user base and to new customers.

Prosig maintains a network of partners to support business in Europe, North America, India, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and South America.

The company vision has always been focused on producing reliable, high quality, integrated measurement solutions that allow our customers to achieve best practice by using the latest tools available to the test engineer.
