Philosophy

Through the years, the philosophy of the Nardo family has always been to be able to supply customers around the world with practical affordable solutions for their testing needs. When Hanna introduced the pHep (pH Electronic Paper) in 1986 it literally revolutionized the world of testing by allowing millions of people in various industries to test for pH in a simple, accurate and affordable way. This winning philosophy is still strongly embedded in HANNA.® In 2005, when we introduced the world's first single parameter series of automatic titrators dedicated to food analysis, we put thousands of users around the world in the position to perform their own analytical tests in house, and to improve the quality of their product.

The driving philosophy that has been a trademark of HANNA has translated into a top class world wide organization with over 1,000 employees, including Sales and Technical Support, Research & Development and Manufacturing centers in 31 different countries.

Research & Development

For three decades HANNA has prided itself in being one of the world's leaders in innovation of analytical instrumentation. Headed by our team in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, HANNA's Research & Development teams constantly challenge themselves to improve on existing technology and to invent new testing techniques with the common goal to simplify analytical testing. This applies not only to instrumentation, but also to sensors development, reagents and chemicals. In1985, Hanna was first to introduce to a pH electrode with a built in temperature sensor (HI1217S) which became world wide and commonly used throughout the market. The idea of waterproof portable instruments to be used in harsh environments also was launched by HANNA® in 1990 (HI9025). The concept of giving users the possibility to check the accuracy of their digital thermometer (Checktemp) was introduced to the market by HANNA®in 1995 and is still unique today. Another exclusive technology to HANNA is simultaneous testing for pH and EC with a single instrument which was first introduced in 2000
