Garnet Instruments Ltd. was founded in 1993 in a garage in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. It quickly relocated to its current location as the business grew. The first products that Garnet developed were testers for the oilfield transport industry. Customers often expressed a desire for a quality measurement system in the business. That was the birth of the first SeeLeveL truck tank gauge. Following the initial gauge’s success, numerous requests for gauges in other applications, such as overfill protection and other items to improve loading rack safety, were received.
As Garnet began to expand, an RV was used to launch the company in the U.S.A. The sales team began setting up dealers and installation centers for the transport products. It was during this time that it became clear that there was a need for a new way of measuring holding tanks in recreational vehicles.
SeeLeveL RV monitoring systems were first implemented in aftermarket RV units in 1998. Garnet decided to expand its product offering to RV OEMs after receiving a lot of positive feedback from end-users.
As Garnet began to experience exceptional growth, our facility expanded to accommodate increased production. To meet demand, Garnet acquired some of the most advanced equipment machinery in Canada. Garnet has grown from a small beginning to being recognized as one of North America’s leaders in liquid-level measurement solutions in both bulk transport and RV industry.
