During the great depression in the 1920’s, John Taylor formed the Taylor Dynamometer & Machine Company to produce and market the equipment he had developed for diesel engine testing. When the U.S. entered into World War II, the company was well known for its quality products, particularly its engine dynamometers. Since World War II, Taylor Dynamometer has focused on providing testing solutions to manufacturers and distributors of all types of engines and motors. Today, thousands of Taylor dynamometer’s are in operation throughout the world.
Taylor’s success over the years is attributed to its reputation for the outstanding value that it delivers to its customers, through product design, manufacturing processes, technical support and training. The focus of the company has been and continues to be its engineering excellence. As part of that commitment, Taylor actively works with area universities to help educate their students through internships.
Taylor works hard to balance its product development between mechanical, electrical and electronics engineering. The company has developed strong capabilities in each area, particularly important with computerized dynamometer controllers and various electronic engine testing tools. Taylor has innovated real benefits for its customers, such as windows-based software with easy-to-learn and easy-to-use style, presentation-quality reports and others. Our innovations reflect our advanced capabilities.
Our regional representatives provide engineering assistance to our customers. We believe this is very important because most customers select and install few dynamometers during their careers and need to depend upon us to advise them on which dynamometer is most appropriate for their performance testing needs. In addition, our engineers advise customers on the configuration of the dynamometer test room and the adequacy of services, including electricity, air intake and outflow, fuel supply, plumbing and drainage.
We're proud of our manufacturing competence. We not only design and develop our own products - we also build our own products at our factory. We believe that this gives us flexibility that is a real advantage for our customers. Every machine is manufactured to an order and tailored to meet the testing needs of each customer. Many of our parts and components are custom fabricated by our suppliers to our design and patterns, to ensure that they meet our high standards of reliability and durability.
We engineer, manufacture and market reliable, durable equipment for performance testing of engines and related applications throughout the world. We continuously seek to increase value for our customers and distributors through distinguished product design, cost-effective manufacturing and comprehensive technical support and training.
Creating customer satisfaction is our single most important responsibility to ensure the long-term success of our company. The profits that result from customer satisfaction are reinvested for the advancement of our products, service and employees.
Our success is dependent upon the collective contributions of individual employees. Therefore, we foster learning, discovery and accomplishment that contribute to the achievement of individual and company goals.
