Originally founded in 1941 by Ralph Taber, the Taber Instrument Corporation was established to manufacture precision testing instruments. As lead engineer, Mr. Taber invented numerous devices that aided in the understanding of material physical properties - the most famous being the Taber Abraser (abrader). Many of the original product concepts were so innovative they are still widely used today.
