Mark-10 Corporation is founded by Bill Fridman as an engineering consultancy in New York City.
Mark-10 has been designing and manufacturing a wide range of products since 1979. From humble beginnings on a kitchen table, we’ve grown and specialized into a leading manufacturer of force, torque, and materials testing solutions.
Take a look at what we've accomplished over the years:
Bill and his wife, Vera, commence contract electronic manufacturing - on their kitchen table. Future Mark-10 president, Mark Fridman, runs quality control from his baby crib.
Mark-10 opens its first location in Kew Gardens, Queens, a small neighborhood storefront in New York City.
Mark-10 moves to the suburbs (Hicksville, NY), adding capacity and staff. Some fun projects include a master remote control for a limousine, a portable suture strength tester for a medical device sales team, and other interesting products.
The first Mark-10-branded force gauge, Series BG, is introduced to great acclaim. Additional force gauges, indicators with sensors, manual test stands, and grips follow throughout the 1990s.
Purchase of our first CNC milling machine, greatly improving production scheduling and product design flexibility. We haven't looked back - today we're particularly proud of our fleet of multi-axis, automated CNC machinery.
New Model ESM motorized test stand provides a simple and economical solution for push and pull applications to 200 lbF (1 kN).
Mark Fridman joins the company full-time, with initial roles in sales, marketing, and technical support. Mark is promoted to President in 2019.
Amid consistent, significant growth, Mark-10 purchases and moves into a 12,000 sf facility in Copiague, NY. Formerly a printing shop, the building was almost completely rebuilt to meet our needs.
Materials testing module for IntelliMESUR® is introduced. Measure stress, strain, modulus, yield, tensile strength, rupture, and other common calculations for a wide variety of materials and applications.
Focused, as always, on force and torque measurement, Mark-10 continues to invest in our people and facilities to bring class-leading testing solutions to industries worldwide.
