Ludlum Measurements, Inc. (LMI) has been designing, manufacturing and supplying radiation detection and measurement equipment in response to the worlds' need for greater safety since 1962. Throughout its nearly 5 decade history, it has developed radiation detection technologies and instruments in support of enhancing the safety of personnel and the environment. It offers one of the largest lines of radiation detection instrumentation available from any one company.
There are not too many companies that have met the challenge of carrying on a successful business for nearly 50 years. There are even fewer who can also claim they still have their founder at the helm after that long period. But that is exactly the case with Ludlum Measurements, Inc. Started in 1962, Don Ludlum has created a thriving enterprise that has grown into a world-class company. We invite you to read this short story that honors this great man. The Don Ludlum Story
Longevity and Commitment
LMI’s earned reputation for affordability, high quality, reliability, durability, and long term support are well known and highly respected within each of the markets it currently serves. The core values established by its founder and president, Mr. Don Ludlum, continue in full force, without interruption or alteration by outside investors or buyers. Mr. Ludlum together with his son, Larry, remains at the helm of the company which has grown into a full scale enterprise operated by a staff of highly experienced professionals.
Radiation detection has played a fundamentally important role throughout the nuclear age. From its humble beginning in helping scientists to unlock the secrets of the atom, radiation detection has evolved into a fundamental tool that has assisted researchers and engineers in powering our communities, enhancing our health, supporting industry, and securing our homelands. Recent terrorist activities in combination with the uncertain nuclear ambitions of some countries have escalated the role of radiation detection to an even higher level as we attempt to make our nuclear pervasive world safer. Ludlum is committed to making the world a safer place to live and work in by developing and manufacturing affordable, dependable and long lasting measurement instrumentation. In addition to our ever widening product line, we also design and manufacture custom designs and are willing to make modifications to single instruments to better suit the needs of our customers.
LMI has invested heavily into becoming a vertically integrated radiation detection company in order to better control costs, quality, and delivery times. Recent additions of in-house automated PC board assembly and plastic injection molding capability plus photomultiplier tube and plastic scintillation detector design and manufacturing all contribute to this succeeding philosophy.
LMI has a significant investment in engineering to ensure it sustains a high level of competency and excellence within the organization. The width and breadth of the engineering organization affords it to rapidly develop many new designs each year while simultaneously supporting its large product line. Many of the time-tested and field-proven designs are credited to LMI’s engineering expertise in developing reliable instruments capable of withstanding rough handling and harsh environments.
LMI is also legendary for its repair, calibration and training support. It is not uncommon to still be supporting instruments shipped several decades previously or well past what most traditional instrument companies would deem reasonable. LMI additionally supports calibration and repair on many radiation detection instruments it has not manufactured.
Dedication to Safety
Radiation detection is a vital part of ensuring safety not only in those endeavors which promote economic development, but also in better securing our homelands against possible terrorist activities. LMI has contributed significantly towards advancing security along borders and at sea ports. It has also equipped First Responders with tools that better enable them to respond to emergencies where unknown harmful materials may be present.
