One of first products Chaney Instrument Co. invented and patented was the glass tube candy thermometer that is still in use today. In 1987, Chaney Instrument Company became part of the Primex Family of Companies. The company invested in clock and thermometer technologies to become one of the largest manufacturers of quartz clock movements in the US with an annual output of over 10 million motors. With a continued focus on innovation and technology, Chaney Instrument pioneered a line of analog atomic clocks in 1998. The clocks set themselves and maintain accuracy to the split-second.

Most recently, AcuRite launched patented Self-Calibrating Forecasting and patent-pending Precision Forecasting Technology for weather stations. In addition, AcuRite's Acu-Link interface enables users to access their personal weather forecast, monitor conditions remotely and set programmable alerts when conditions change - accessible from a mobile device or web browser.

Today, we are still a family-owned business based in idyllic Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. We remain committed to our customers, our employees and our environment.
