Since 1954, Karol-Warner has been a leader in the design and manufacture of materials testing equipment for soils, soil mechanics, and geotechnical engineering laboratory applications. During these years, we developed and added new equipment for asphalt and aggregate applications and tests, growing our product base, and continually learning more about the needs of our industry. We know the world of construction materials testing and the industries it serves well, especially those related to road, highway, bridge, and other infrastructure construction projects.
We adhere to three core principles ... Offer Quality & Innovation, Value Customer Collaboration, and Let Our Experience Speak.
Our expertise and innovative designs have shaped the industry. A solid history of developing and manufacturing efficient, reliable, and easy-to-use materials testing equipment means that all the benefits of our experience go directly to you.
Through more than six decades of manufacturing construction materials testing equipment, we have collaborated directly with customers, listened to their ideas and suggestions, and took them to heart. In fact, many new products were developed this way.
Years of manufacturing testing equipment gives us solid insight into what customers want and need. In addition, many of our manufacturing and customer service specialists have been in the industry for over 20 years, with extensive knowledge to help customers.
We are based in Lewis Center, Ohio, where we manufacture and supply equipment worldwide for soil, geotechnical, and asphalt materials testing. Equipment is designed to meet ASTM, AASHTO, and other industry standards where required.
Our focus on materials testing evolved from an immediate need for instruments to provide accurate and reliable test data on soil characteristics. We started with Karol-Warner’s CONBEL® Pneumatic Consolidation Load Frame and have grown into one of the most widely-known producers of testing equipment for soil mechanics, geotechnical, asphalt, and aggregate applications.
The last 60-plus years have been dedicated to the development and manufacture of unique, high-quality instruments and equipment for soils, asphalt, and aggregates testing. They have also been dedicated to establishing long-lasting relationships by offering the best sales, customer service, and support experience to every customer. We look ahead to the next 60 years of growth through continued innovation, quality manufacturing, and exceptional customer service.
