100 Years of Doble: The Past, Present and Future of the Power Industry’s Most Reliable Partner
Since Doble Engineering Company was founded back in 1920, Frank Doble’s innovations have positively impacted many lives across the world. We wish he could see how his organization is still thriving 100 years later. Today, we’re bigger and better than ever before.
As Doble celebrates its centennial, we will share stories on our blog around the many technological advancements, employees, partners, deals and breakthroughs that have made the journey to this point exciting and possible.
While 2020 will provide a natural opportunity to reflect on a job well done, it will also be a time to refocus and set our sights even higher towards the next generation of technology and services our industry is demanding.
An industry innovator with a proven track record
At Doble, we have always been the company ahead of the curve. We’ve identified problems and created solutions before they’ve impacted the end-user. Our customers and partners have learned to expect this level of innovation, commitment and professionalism from our team, and we’ll continue to deliver. While milestones should be recognized and appreciated, they are not the end of our achievement, but merely a point in which to reenergize for the journey ahead.
From the day that Dr. Doble founded the company, we had a clear and concise mission: be the industry standard for power testing equipment and solutions. While the challenges and technology have evolved a great deal over the years, our objective has not changed.
Doble’s impact on the electric power industry throughout the past century cannot be overstated. Our solutions have become so synonymous with quality and accuracy that the Doble brand is to the electric power industry what Coca-Cola is to the soft drink industry. The question, “Did you Doble that?” has consistently been asked by teams in the field to understand whether quality, safety and efficiency has been tested for and considered.
Strong past points to a bright future
As the industry digitally transforms, Doble evolves along with it. From new offerings to address the challenges of an increasingly complex cybersecurity landscape — such as our Transient Cyber Asset Program and PatchAssureTM patch management solution — to advanced analytics capabilities and data-focused solutions, we’re committed to developing products that meet our customers’ most pressing and new age needs. Our recent acquisitions of Morgan Schaffer, Vanguard Instruments, Manta Test Systems and ENOSERV all brought best-of-breed technology offerings to the Doble family that not only complete our product portfolio in key areas, such as dissolved gas analysis (DGA), circuit breaker testing, data management, and more, but also position us to continue to innovate for the future.
From the early beginnings of the company through today, Doble has been more than a vendor to our customers, but a partner in every sense of the word. We have accomplished much as a team, and should be proud, but the journey is far from over.
We invite you over the next year to visit this space frequently to learn a bit more about the history, accomplishments and most importantly, the future of this great company.
