EIT LLC (Electronic Instrumentation and Technology) was founded in 1977 with the belief that our customers would benefit if we supported our manufacturing team with a strong engineering team. Considered revolutionary in 1977, this belief and approach continues to guide us today. We’ve changed and evolved, and will continue to do so as technology changes, but we will remain committed to supporting our customers’ needs with a strong engineering team.
