Best Testrite Online Retailer
In the 1920s, originally an importer of scientific instruments, Testrite redefined itself during WWII as a manufacturer of products needed for the war effort.
In the 1960s, company founder Herman Neuwirth, parlayed his love for oil painting into a growth opportunity. Herman invented a line of aluminum artist easels that featured strength and portability advantages that wooden artist easels did not have.
In the 1970s Hermanís son-in-law, Harold Rubin became the Companyís CEO. Relying on its expertise in the manufacture of camera tripods, Testrite developed telescopic aluminum flipchart easels. Flipchart aluminum easels became a huge hit in the growing office products and direct sales (think Amway) markets.
As markets and industries changed, and distribution channels disappeared, current CEO Larry Rubin, Haroldís son, who had grown up in the business, recognized a growing need for telescopic aluminum tube assemblies made to order. Today, Testrite manufactures telescopic assemblies made to close tolerances that are used in many diverse products and industries.
Testrite is very proud to be an American manufacturer with an extraordinary reputation for value and reliability. Because we manufacture in the U.S., our supply chain is shorter, "greener", and we can offer customizable solutions.
Testrite represents a labor of love and tells a story of continuing product and Company evolution. For nine decades we have enjoyed working closely with our customers to make their projects successful.
