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 a wide variety of internet-connected weather stations and environmental sensors, allowing users to access their AcuRite sensor data from anywhere in the world using a smartphone, computer or tablet. The technology allows users to monitor conditions remotely, and customize alerts and notifications when conditions change.

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.
