Kistler Sensors is Now Strain Systems Inc.

May 21, 2012

Kistler Sensors Inc. is changing its name to Strain Systems Inc. Though the name change is effective immediately, the full transition is expected to take several months. The company will continue to operate in its current structure, without interruption, with all employees, products, and services intact. 

“We made a name for ourselves in the silo weight and level measurement industry in a short period of time,” said Kennan Yilmaz, president of Strain Systems. “Now we want to ensure that, going forward, our identity in the marketplace encompasses all the activities we see in our long-term product roadmap and business plan.”

Kistler Sensors was established to commercialize the latest industrial strain-measurement instrument, the patented StrainCell sensor, invented by Walter Kistler, who is still involved with Strain Systems as inventor and chief technologist.

“Our near-term focus continues to be silo inventory management,” said Yilmaz. “We are dedicated to being the industry leader in accurate, reliable, nonintrusive weight and level measurement solutions for bulk storage customers.”
